He used to be thirsty.
Then he brew some beer and now he is Lazy.

Congratulations!  Do you have a pub or do you bottle/keg your beers?  It would be fun to visit this summer since I live in Appleton, WI.   :)

Thank you guys.
I did initial testing on Saturday and I will be testing more this week.
So far it is looking good and I am exited.
I need to install fan in the electrical box to dissipate the heat from SSR heat sinks

I blew thru two kegs today.
I will be brewing on Sunday to triage the situation.
I was thinking about Vienna Lager but I might switch to another Bohemian Dark Lager.

I found this post on homebrew talk and it was a great help:

I set the temp probe to the appropriate one  and stuff started to work.
Looking good so far.

I am building an electric brewery with Aubere instruments PID SYL-2352.

Any recommendation how to use it?
How to calibrate the temp probe?

Thank you

To my opinion Pallets vs. leaf/flower is matter of personal preference. 

Ingredients / Re: CDA Carafa Special Use
« on: February 10, 2011, 04:20:10 AM »
The decision to add Carafa at the beginning or end of the mash can be partially answered by looking at your water.  If your brewing water has moderate to high alkalinity, I would recommend adding it at the beginning to help consume the alkalinity.  If the brewing water is low alkalinity (like RO, DI, or rainwater) then you should delay adding the carafa until the end.   

Not sure if I fallow the argument.
I add Carafa Special at the end of the mash if I want to minimize roasted notes.
I adjust water to to mash in Pre Carafa SRM.
It appears to be working pretty good.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Cal Lager for Light Lagers- Hmm, not so sure.
« on: February 05, 2011, 03:06:47 AM »
I used Cal Lager yeast in Cal Common as well as dark beer.
I have to say first I was hesitant but I got good results.
That was at 60F fermentation temp.
Now I am quite fond of that yeast.

I also agree if you want German lager use German yeast.
If you want Czech Lager, use Czech yeast.
