All Grain Brewing / Re: Metabisulfite (sulfur dioxide) in beer brewing
« on: April 18, 2017, 07:42:29 AM »
so on the one hand he's saying removing copper from the system will also remove the preventative measure to producing hydrogen sulfide.

I have some SS CFCs that have been awaiting swapping out for my copper CFCs - is this saying that that I should expect greater hydrogen sulfide in the finished beer, assuming no SMB at the moment and standard water recipes (higher gypsum for IPAs, etc).

Kegging and Bottling / Re: How often do you clean your beer lines?
« on: April 17, 2017, 10:45:49 AM »
man, I feel like a slug - I only clean every 2-3 months, which works out to every other keg or so per tap.  I daisy chain the lines together and recirc a sump pump with BLC for 45 min and then with hot water to flush out.

In a conical you can blow CO2 in the bottom to suspend them. Not in a conical, I assume?


No it is - I had not thought of that!

I'll give them a day to saturate and then hook that up. 

Thanks!!!

General Homebrew Discussion / Dryhop clump oops!

Not really thinking, I dumped a clump of pellets in for dryhopping and heard the clunk of them hitting the bottom.

I cannot agitate the not do I want to for fear of oxidation.

Think I should dump in some more hops this time broken up?

Kegging and Bottling / American Ales - CO2 Volumes
« on: April 07, 2017, 11:05:06 AM »
Curious what other folks target as their CO2 volumes for American ales.  I target 2.4-2.5 on most things, but recently I've been thinking that might be too high.

Got an unexpected day off for predicted bad weather.

Brewing a British Golden Ale: Golden Promise, Galaxy hops, and Pacific Ale yeast.

Ooh - not familiar with the Pacific Ale but GP n G sounds awesome!

either doing my house Pils or Simcoe/Equinox (or Chinook/Equinox) IPA.  Still undecided, which one I will do this weekend vs. the 15th

All Things Food / Re: Wings
« on: March 29, 2017, 01:11:32 PM »
i pretty much stopped frying my wings, so much mess and cleanup.  I still slightly prefer fried, but i find baked to be almost perfect, a bit healthier and much easier to make.  i bake them on a rack in a sheet pan at 425-450 after some olive oil and S/P beforehand.  takes about 45 min to an hour, dependent on how crispy you want the skin.

then proceed with your prep.  i like fairly hot, but my gf does not.  so i often make different types of sauces - maple/Dijon/pepper, raspberry with Frank's etc.  if they're just for me, all bets are off.

actually making some wings tonight!

We had the glycol at 40°F and to chill down 20 gallons of wort it took 30 mins. It would be nice to know what other people with a similar set up are getting for chill times.

your question may be directed towards people who have a similar chilling system, i.e. glycol, so apologies if so.  I have a similar system otherwise, but i don't use glycol - i run a double ganged counterflow chiller, one with groundwater and one with ice water on a continuous loop from my HLT. 

I get 12gal of wort to 50df in about 20-25min.

sweet setup. 

how quickly does the glycol chill it down?
