Yeast and Fermentation / Re: ale yeast for cool temps
« on: December 22, 2010, 07:47:54 PM »

Why not use the Anchor Steam yeast (Cal lager)?  That's a good one for those in-between temps.

I have a good experience with this yeast.
Fermentation temp 58F - 60F.
Nice clean beer.

Cashed in my vouchers over the weekend. I was able to get mead bottling supplies, a 50# bag of weyermann pils malt, another cornie and some miscellaneous supplies for essentially half off!

Well, I guess that's one benefit of living in the frozen tundra..  ;) Cheers!!!

We need to entertain ourself somehow.
Well we could be tipping cows but...

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Secondary Regulator in the Kegerator
« on: December 21, 2010, 08:49:38 PM »
Regulators work best at room temperature. If you must use your regulator in the cold it will take up to 4 hours for the adjustment to register. For example: If you are at 10 PSI and you change the pressure to 12 PSI the regulator will move to 14 or 15 PSI over the next 4 hours. Once you have found the correct pressure the regulator will work perfectly fine but it will take some trial and error to get it adjusted.


I have a similar experience (CO2 in the fridge) but I thought that all regulators are doing this.
Good to know.

I hate when people change their Avatar. I associate them with the picture, at least for quick identification purposes. Its already like playing concentration trying to remember who everyone is. The Avatar helps a lot.


I could not say it better.
Thank you

Not brewing this weekend.
Working on walk-in cooler.

Living in Wisconsin, that means you are installing a new front door?  :D

He said cooler, not freezer.

Cooler than what?

You guys are funny :)


That could be a drive through cooler! 

If you drive forklift then it is a drive in cooler.
Insulating tomorrow.

The cost is $17 per brewer
($15 to competition + $2 surcharge to BrownPaperTickets). The maximum number of
participants is 25.
You are almost right.

This sounds like beerfest that you need to pay money to have your beer served.

Not sure how I feel a out it.
It is my beer and someone else is charging public for tasting it.
Am I missing something?

Every time I have issues with the BC, I swear at it and tell it I'm buying a MM tomorrow and for some reason it starts cooperating for the remainder of the grist.

I am trying the same technique on my kids but unlike your mill ... well ...

I would be worried that even with FermCap you will have boilover when you add hops.
Have you ever clean a boilover on the stove?  :D
