Good luck.  There's many ways to get the same result.  Do what works for you.

We're giving custom SS growlers as speaker gifts at NHC, although the minimum order may be bigger than you need.  PM Tom Schmidlin and see if he can get you details

It might very well be done, but it couldn't hurt to leave it a few days more to be sure.

It feels expensive.

 ;D Not if he didn't pay for it!  :P

Grain was donated by Great Western.  We used their OR Select pale malt, grown here in OR.  Hops were donated by HopUnion.

Ingredients / Re: Fermcap, how much is too much?
« on: May 08, 2012, 08:14:11 AM »
My opinion of Fermcap has changed over time.  While I don't think it's a major health risk, I have enough questions about it that I try to avoid using it whenever possible.  I used to add it to the kettle to prevent boilovers.  Now I stand there with a spray bottle.  I just had to use it in a fermenter and while I would rather not have used it, I put it in.

No problem with the lautering?
Where is the braided hose?   :)

I asked John to line up 200 blue coolers for me, but it didn't happen.  ;)

What was the grain bill, 1500lb?  That'd be about what I figure 15bbl of wry smile would take.  And something like 23lb of hops not counting the dry hops.

Edited to add:  Oops I see the grain bill was 1200lb, must be light beer.

We ended up doing only about 13 bbl.  Used 12 lb. of grain and 18 lb. of hops.  Hit 18P on the money.

None whatsoever.  They were paranoid since they've had issues before, but it went fine.
