General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Refractometer - Which one is best?

I also find that the interface line between the white and blue zone sharpens with more time.  It starts out very fuzzy and sharpens in a few minutes.

If you let the refractometer rest upside-down the particulate in the same will settle away from the prism and you get a crisper line. I read this on a different forum and it actually works.

Interesting.
I have to try it next time.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: ale yeast for cool temps
« on: December 23, 2010, 02:47:54 AM »

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 22, 2010, 03:49:38 AM »
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.
