Going Pro / Re: Can filler and seamer

You also have to get a buttload of cans don't you? Who do you get them from?

Awesome cans btw!

My minimum is 8 pallets on cans and one pallet on lids. Lids will kill you thou.

In bottle market you also have minimums on six packs and mother cartons, labels and everybody wants to sell you truckload of bottles.

8 Pallets is not that bad for printed cans, I thought you had to get a truckload. Does wild goose supply the cans too ?

Can I ask the approximate cost difference between the MC-50 and the MC-100 (with conveyor/lid dropper/seamer)?

Is that against forum rules?
Price of MC-50 is about one new minivan. Price of MC-100 is twice as much. Do not forget suppy (cans, lids, plates making, binders and trays) that is about another minivan.

But similar would go for bottling line. Moheen filler is about tvo minivans then you need labeled and supply.
Anyway you look into it it cost arm and leg.

To each his own. I really enjoy clamato with a Pacifico (I live in Mazatlan, so I get it really cheap), and I would much rather have a Corona with clamato than the Corona by itself.

It's been fermenting REALLY vigorously for 5 days now, at 68F. I wonder if I didn't kill the bugs. :-\

Thanks a lot. I boiled with the hop additions before I pitch the lacto starter, so I just wanted to kill all organisms. I ended up boiling for 5 minutes at that point, and pitching the ale yeast. I did add a bit more extract to bring the gravity up a bit, and am planning on adding raspberries after primary. Just wanted to know if it was gonna taste more sour after fermentation, or if it was gonna stay that way. Anyway I hope it turns out alright, this is my first time messing with bugs.  :o

Yeast and Fermentation / Quick souring method
« on: March 18, 2013, 11:39:25 AM »
So I did the quick souring method as I read on zymurgy and some forums. 2 liter starter with some grains kept at 100-120 F for 3 days, then put that in the wort and kept at around 100F. Its been 2 days right now and it seems like there's a 3/4'' krausen on top of the wort, not a pellicle, it looks more like a normal yeast krausen, and there's a lot of airlock activity. Is this normal?. I took a sample, and the pH is down to 3.9, and gravity is down from 1.055 to 1.044. It smells kinda like sauerkraut, and tastes somewhat sweet and sour, pretty nice actually. Would the beer be noticeably sour if I boil, chill and ferment normally at this pH? Or should I wait for the pH to drop further? Also, should I boil or just pasteurize?

Would you add more yeast to a BDS that's been in the fermenter for 2 months and its about 8.5% ABV ?

That's what I ate last saturday, drunk, at 3 am, in a place outside on the street, with flies everywhere. Hmmmm ::). That's the secret here in Mexico, forget everything about hygene.  ;D

Kegging and Bottling / Extra yeast for bottling

I'm bottling a lager tomorrow that's been in the fermenter for 8 weeks now. Do you think I'll need more yeast for bottling or would I be fine without it? I've never made a lager before so I'm not sure.
