All Grain Brewing / Re: How long does a batch take/Grinding grain.

What are the ramifications of having it too hot for a few minutes?  Would I have killed all my enzymes in that short a time?  It was probably about 170 before I added the water.


If it was just a few minutes, I'd say little damage was done.

I agree with Tom, but unless there's a lawyer who's familiar with local and Federal statutes on this board, you'd be better off contacting a lawyer or the ATF than asking homebrewers for a legal opinion.  I mean, would ya ask your lawyer about mash temps?

Maybe it's an author thing - I haven't seen mine yet either.

Neener neener....mine showed up last week.

Tsunami warnings our for the coast here.  Don't think anything's hit yet, but I've heard reports the draw back is starting.

For me, a normal single infusion brew takes 4.5-5 hours from running the mash water til finishing the cleanup.

Me, too.  CO2 is CO2, no matter what the source.  Priming kegs just makes more sediment.

Cool, but worthless as anything other than entertainment.   ;D

I have two cases of these hanging around, and the beer I want to enter is almost gone, and can't be re-bottled. I'll send it in anyway, and if it works, great; if it doesn't, I hope somebody drinks the beer as opposed to throwing it out. It's pretty good.
Hi Phil,

The bottle is slightly out of spec, but tell me to which Judging Center you are sending your entries, and I'll let the organizers know about the odd size.  Good luck in the competition!

Cheers,

Janis, you ROCK!

I bought a digital thermometer from walmart a few years ago. At our elevation water boils at ~207F. Every time I've checked it, it was right on. I think it was around $12. Came with an extra battery but I've never change it out. Here's a pic of the display.  Cheers!!!


That looks like the CDN.  A very good brand of thermonmeter.

Never had an opportunity to try Nelson S hops yet. I understand they have a "white wine" fruitiness about them.

Good for APA's?

I'd like to give them a shot someday.

Let us know how they work out for you.

I would call them "kinda strange".....

This is the best kegging info I've found.  It really helped me when I started out.

Looks good, with one exception.  Don't worry about the calendar....the beer makes its own schedule.

I've got one of these that I really like.

Not as fast as the Thermopen, but very accurate and less expensive.

I've heard it said that the closer you are to the 45th parallel, they better they'll do.

Hmmm...Did I mention the laziness factor?

Hey, T, we call that pragmatism, not the "L" word!
