General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Stir Bar Tip

If I were handy, I could make a stir plate.  I bought one at www.stirstarters.com.  It was only $45, including shipping.  Lifetime guarantee.  I had a starter overflow and yeast got into the unit.  It was fixed, no charge, even though it was clearly my fault.  Can't say enough about the customer service.

The Corona Mill rocks for the boiled wheat.  My grind might be a little finer than the photos.  I'm going to add lots of rice hulls, just to be sure.

The normal rate at the Convention Center Garage is $30, so we're looking at $15 a night.  Woot!

Please report back on this.  HSA has always been a hotly contested topic.

I believe it's an old brewers' myth, myself.

Somewhere along the line, you're always going to end up brewing a batch bigger than you possibly imagined.  Always over-plan.  Size matters.

Alright...maybe one more question. I am actually in my 3rd store for a cooler as I type this. All the 60-70 quart coolers I have found either had wheels which make the interior odd shapes or the lid basically just sits on top making the quality questionable. Any thoughts of a regular rectangle cooler but it is only 52 quarts. Questionable for 10 gallon batches? Thanks again.

the coleman extreme 72 qt is a good cooler. but a 52 qt will be fine for most 5-10 gallon batches.

I use an Igloo 48 qt cooler for the bulk of my brewing.  I can make 10-12 gallons of a normal strength beer with no problem (although it does help if the recipe has some sugar).  I just purchased a Coleman 72 qt extreme cooler for big higher gravity batches.

It's not happening with boiled wheat berries and the roller mill.  The mill just schmooshes 'em through like gummi bears.  I picked up a Corona Mill on Amazon to grind them.  Hopefully I'll be able to grind raw wheat and dabble with some Lambics and Flanders Red.

Apparently the berries need to dry more.  They just gummed their way through the mill without crushing them.  I think it would be pointless to adjust the rollers closer.  At least the mill didn't jam.

I boiled the wheat berries for my Witbier yesterday.  I'm letting them dry and will try to mill them after work this afternoon.  Wish me luck.

Can't pass up one on the East coast.  This will be my 2nd.

Events / Need AHA logo for banner
« on: May 30, 2013, 08:59:55 AM »
I'm designing a banner for our club to display at a local beer festival.  I want to include the new AHA logo, but the Google image ones don't have enough resolution.  Is there a link where I can download a respectably-sized logo?

Events / North, East, & West Pre-Confrence Tours?
« on: May 29, 2013, 02:49:00 PM »
From the looks of the NHC website, the Wednesday East, West, and North pre-conference tours are no longer listed.  I hope they weren't cancelled.  Seems that everyone wanted the DFH tour.

I tried to follow the advice of flushing out the vacuum tubes with air, but it didn't work.  I also think the heating strip has issues.  So I bought a better vacuum sealer that's much more quiet, too.
