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.

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

You will probably have to have a bartender license because you are SERVING to the public.
As Fred mentioned check with your municipality.

As far as license is concerned, your insurance agent should help you in that area.
Good luck.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Saaz in a German Pils
« on: December 14, 2010, 04:37:42 AM »
Fred I do not mean to be difficult but:

Saaz were grown in Bohemia, modern day Czechoslovakia, and have a spicy nose and a spicy flavor. 
Czechoslovakia existed from 1918 to 1993.
In 1993 It split into two republic Czech Republic and Slovak Republic.

Bohemian Pils must exhibit the spicy character of the Saaz hops to be in style. 
Not necessarally. There are Czech Pilsner brewed (in Czech republic) with 100% Magnum.

The water was extremely soft.
May be in Pilsen.
Bohemian pilsner is brewed in lager geographical area then just city of Plzen / Pilzen.
Water softness vary from soft to moderate.

Pilsner Urquall is a fine example of the style but there is more to Bohemian Pilsner then just Pilsner Urquell.
If you ever travel to Czech republic try to find small independent breweries.
You will discover wide array of beers that are Bohemian Pilsners and might not fit into BJCP style guidelines.

And now carry on.
