i still use a plastic bucket even up to 4 weeks.  i know of no reason not to use a corny for the longer duration lagers as long as the batch size works, and i am tending toward smaller more varied batches rather than big volumes.  cornies arent very expensive considering.  i have thought about some of the plastic conicals also but again i think i am okay

My apologies, i understand what you are referring to now.  In my old navy days whiskey tango foxtrot, is the correct alphabet for WTF, was used for well,  WTF. I didn't realize it was the name of a beer.  Now i have to find one.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Flat Beer
« on: April 22, 2010, 02:57:38 PM »
may be flat or oxidized, but as i have recently made the mistake of referring to that as skunky, and subsequently re-educated, the skunky smell/taste comes from (i think i got this right)  a chemical reaction induced by uv light with chemicals from the hops. 

couple ideas.  first, most shower heads are just threaded on and can be taken off. put a T valve in that would normally couple to a hand held nozzle. then connect to this.

the second is to use an "intercooler"  which is what i am planning on building.  this gets the cooling water colder than the faucet water.  use a resevoir (cooler, tub, etc,) filled with ice or ice packs.  then pump water from this through the wart cooler and back over the ice.  this has the effect of using colder cooling water and you need to use less water overall.  you then don't need to have constant supply from the faucets
