Equipment and Software / Re: Regulator won't seal...
« on: March 27, 2010, 06:39:23 PM »
Sometimes the oring doesn't seal properly.  My gas supply house gave me a plastic gasket to use in addtition to the oring and this works great.  They give me one every time I fill one of my tanks.
the same thing here.
I get new washer every time when i exchange my tank.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Sour Mash
« on: March 24, 2010, 09:09:36 AM »
How do people go about holding the mash at ~110-120F for several days of sour mashing?
Recirculate with HERMS would be my suggestion.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Which Brew pot to buy?
« on: March 16, 2010, 07:17:39 PM »
I got 10 gal MegaPot kettle with ball valve.

If you are going to use it as a kettle ball valve is a must and thermometer is nice to have.
If you are going to use it as a mash tun then you also need thermometer and false bottom.
If you decided that you are only going to brew 5 gal batches both pots will work.
if you are going to brew 10 gal batched you need 15 gal pot.

All Grain Brewing / Re: question about a mash schedule

And truth be told, most of those brewers mash in coolers and would find it very difficult to do a multi-step mash.

I do mash in orange cooler and do step mashes.
There is nothing wrong about coolers.


Can we class that cooler sitting on a radiator as a "direct fired mash tun" ?   :P
Ha ha ha...

Nice try but no cigar.

Brew often and brew lot.
Give beer away and brew more.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Storing Harvested Yeast/Slurry

Don't sweat it too much.

Brewing is a ROBUST process and yeast are resistant bugs (Fungi).

I have dialup... it loads too slow and is broken into short blurbs... its irritating and a waste of time in my situation.  Sometimes it won't even load.   ::)
Not sure where you live and what is your situation but if you have library anywhere close by you probably could download file there and take it home.
