All Grain Brewing / Re: Water salts mass to volume equivalent chart
« on: February 18, 2016, 08:36:46 PM »
Nah, you'd just have to drip water into your teaspoon until you hit 4.93 grams on your scale (or you overflowed your teaspoon).  Better yet just weigh 4.93 grams of water and pour it into your teaspoon to see if it fits!  Getting the teaspoon to stay level might be interesting though...

And hold the water at 3.98°C throughout...

I'd give an English IPA a try on some time, but I still wouldn't have high hopes that it would appeal to my tastes. I wonder if Left Hand has ever put 400lb Monkey on nitro...

They do at the brewery. I really like it.

Fun fact, nonoxynol-9 is a spermicide.

Good to know. Switching to povidone iodine now...

15 peppers how many gallons? And how spicy would you say that is?

That's for 6 gal, and it's definitely piquant. I also will eat the 10/10 at the Thai place and ask for a side of sauce.

And please don't hold me to the 15 chiles thing. I only have it recorded as 4 oz.

For really intense flavor I'll use up to 4 oz of de-stemmed/seeded habaneros. I want to say that works out to something like 15 chiles.

In order to clean these guys, do you just load the brew kettle up with some oxi-clean solution and just pump it through then rinse it with water the same way?

If your equipment allows for it, take the pump out of the loop and flip it around first. CIP counter-process in order to flush out any eddys.

Was in Buena today and thought about that filling station up and running yet?

Not yet. We have to wait for the thaw to pour concrete, but it's prefab so it should go up pretty quickly after that.

it was -33 up the hill the other morning. That is just crazy cold.

So… me?  ;)

We definitely got there a few nights last week.

Going Pro / Re: Best books on commercial brewing?

I appreciate and respect your opinion but you are misguided. I brew 5 or 6 days a week and can't get enough of it. What a great and fun career.

I also fall into this camp, and after puzzling over this for a few minutes I realized that it's because I like brewing, as opposed to making beer. Making beer, especially as a home brewer, is pretty simple. Water, malt, time, temperature. It's cooking. Brewing, on the other hand, is all about solving problems as they arise. It's engineering, as opposed to cooking, and I enjoy engineering as only the truly perverse can.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Missed my target O.G. on a DIPA
« on: January 08, 2016, 08:14:36 AM »
Any idea if there is a way to figure out how much that 1lb of corn sugar added to 6.25 gallons of wort will bump up the gravity?

Google says that dextrose has a potential extract of ~90%, or ~42 point-gal/lb, so it would add about 0.006-0.007 SG.

Yeah.  I couldn't even get tix.  I flew from OR, will do my seminar on Sat. and hang in my room the rest of the time.  Kinda bummed they don't include admission to events when you're speaking.

Dang. Sounds like we need to get a beer, weather permitting.

Sean, you gonna be at the BBBB fest this weekend.

I hadn't planned on it, but I could make Saturday…

Edit: I guess it's sold out, actually.

You'll never get an accurate hydrometer reading at 150°F, IME. That's where a refractometer is your best bet.

Doesn't Denny pretty much have that job locked down?

Thought experiment: if sub-freezing temperatures were a problem, most breweries wouldn't be able to use grain silos.
