The Pub / Re: ND could allow homebrewers to sell
« on: January 30, 2011, 04:40:52 AM »
Licensing in WI is not expensive. It is $20 for two years. But on the other hand there is a law that municipality can collect tax on personal property in leased building.

Anyway you look at it there is money going out of your pocket. You need to make and sell enough beer to cover the expenses and 10 gal rig might not cut it.

Tubercle brews a new batch, racks existing finished beer into the keg, scoops out ~2/3 of the trub and then fills the fementer. No problems so far.

  Plus there is the Frankenyeast that has been going for about a decade now. It lives in a quart jar in the fridge. It is let out every once in a while to play.

Did you name your yeast?
If not could I suggest Herman?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: how long on stir plate

I also fully ferment on the stirplate till the yeast drops out.
Then fridge, decant and pitch.

Ingredients / Biofine Clear
« on: January 30, 2011, 12:03:11 AM »
Today I went to Midwest Supply and got me a bottle of Biofine Clear.

I have been using Gelatine for quite some time with good results but I also heard good things about Biofine Clear.
It is supposed to be Vegan friendly (if that really matter) and you do not have to prepare it (like gelatine).

I could not find dosing instruction so I asked in the store how to use it.
The answer I got was "from 3 ml to 30 ml per 5 gal".
I understand that this is a yeast strain dependent but IMO that is quite a range.

Does anybody have any experience with this product and how do you use it?

Questions about the forum? / Re: Link contrast....

Can you create a new class and update the script that runs the post buttons to insert it along with the "url" tags?

That's a little more lifting and tweaking of the engine than I care to do without explicitly testing everything out.

Who said that.

If it compiles, run it!!!

The web site is as sparse as the square footage of the brewery.

All three jurisdictions are independent and you have to be licensed by all of them.
At least here in WI you have to have Federal License and municipal license before you can apply for state license.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Attenuation
« on: January 26, 2011, 02:32:37 AM »
It's also the effect that beer has on the brewer. If I have four home brews, I am 50% attenuated. A few more and I am snoring on the couch.
You made a funny.  :D

Check HomeBrewTalk forum and search your subject.
They are very technical in that kind of way.

Does not the BCS have forum on their own?
