All Grain Brewing / Re: Time Delay from Mash to Boil
« on: March 11, 2011, 04:20:28 PM »
I have done that many times without problem.  Split the brew into two days,  Just sanitized the lid and seal and refrigerated.  Obviously, you do run an increased risk of infection. 
You didn't notice any tartness from the lactobacillus on the grains that survive the mash?  The people I've spoken to who tried it thought it was noticeable.

I have not noticed any changes.  However, most of my beers are hoppy and have only been brewing for a year or so.  They taste good to me.

Yeast and Fermentation / Starter temperature questions
« on: March 11, 2011, 06:03:16 AM »
Being new at stir plates and starters, would someone be so kind as to clue me in on ambient temps when producing starters?  For example, should a lager starter be kept at the same low fermentation temp as the wort itself during fermentation?  Any info would be appreciated.

Interesting!  In south central Utah, it is used to line cattle watering reservoirs.  I to would be interested to know how it is used in beer clarification.

The days of old when they have coolant circulating in the walls of the compartment are largely gone. 

That may be for a fridge but I have a new Sears chest freezer.  All sides and possibly the bottom are loaded with lines.  DO NOT drill!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How much did you brew in 2010?

I have been brewing for one year this past Christmas.  I am semi-retired.  I did 32, 5 gal batches and have four taps on the keezer.  Been a fun year sampling all the good beer.
