It goes fast at the shop.
A couple of times I went in to buy some and Joe said somebody came in yesterday and bought it all.
Not all the yeast just all of the type I wanted.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Batch sparge water won't fit?

Brewed this up yesterday.
I just gently added the extra water as I drained the mash tun.
Wound up with 80% efficiency.
No problem.

This isn't what we agreed on.
I never agreed to anything  ;D
Denny said it wouldn't matter, so I took his advice.

A local bar does a contest like that , where you bring 2 six packs for public consumption.
Then they give a prize for "People's Choice"

Hopefully the Phils will come out of their 7 game losing funk and win tonight now that will have their starting lineup back in the swing of things. This might be the best Phillies team that ever graced the city. I hope they can a second chance at those damned Yankees.  ;D
The bats are back  ;D
GO PHILS!

I think you'll like it very much!

Yes I do, it still needs to carb up a bit more, but it tastes pretty good to me.
Though it does need a bit more bittering hops.

Thanks that's what I thought.
Somewhere I thought read something about using the highest temp. the beer was at during fermentation?

Kegging and Bottling / carbonating temp question?
« on: September 20, 2011, 04:14:21 PM »
If I have a a carboy that is @ ferment temp of 68°f
and I am kegging it and then putting it in the fridge @ 45°f and hooking up the gas
when using a carbonation table do I use the 68° or the 45°?

So if double batch sparge do I divide up the water?
1/3 mash, 1/3 sparge, 1/3 sparge
or
1/2 mash, 1/4 sparge, 1/4 saprge

The only concern is your mash pH during runoff. In an effort to avoid tannin extraction you will need to monitor and maintain your mash pH < 6.0 during runoff. You can always make a small addition of phosphoric acid if need be.

I thought pH wasn't an issue with batch spargng? I thought the tannin thing was from over spaging?
And if I had money for a pH meter I'd use it buy a bigger mash tun.  ;D

All Grain Brewing / Batch sparge water won't fit?
« on: September 16, 2011, 08:01:22 AM »
I usually divide my total water amount in half, and use half for the sparge and half for the mash. As long as the quarts per lb stay between 1 and 2.
The beer I am planning I would need 4 gallons mash 4 gallons sparge.
With the grain bill I can only fit about 3 gallons of sparge water, and can't up my mash water by a gallon because that won't fit.
Instead of doing 2 sparges @ 2 gallons each, can I add the 3 gallons that will fit and then slowly add the remaining gallon as the mash tun drains? If I do this should I slow down on how quickly I run off the sparge water.
 I am planning on brewing Fred's late hopped amarillo pale ale   http://wiki.homebrewersassociation.org/AmarilloPaleAleBeerDuJour

Kegging a "not really sure what style this is" ale, and a bitter today, plan on brewing an Amarillo session ale on Sunday.
