I would check out the micro's in your area if any one is bottling only growlers or bombers say I have a machine to can for you.They supply cans,you supply machine. Put the machine in a enclosed trailer that you get approved drive to there place can away. Then drive home with some cash and maybe a couple six packs.( I cant take credit I saw this someplace where the company had a mobil canning line they drove up ran lines into brewery canned away and drove off.

Sadly no - too many other things going on. But we were 100% full up and wouldn't have been able to have had him at a table anyway.
Sounds like a great day anyway.(Like jello there is always room for one more. :) ) Congrats on the dinner. I'll be on the look out for some ghost bottles. Did you try black ops any good? Are any of the others worth looking out for. Thanks Vin S

Equipment and Software / Re: pump noise

Does the motor have brushes? Or a place to put a drop of oil? Sometimes taking the brushes out and hitting them on sandpaper cleans the contact and helps. Is there a capacitor on the motor that could be going ( if so switch between motors and see if it still makes noise) Is the one making noise running hotter or if you can turn shaft harder.  Good luck

I think you might have a kink or blockage in your system. Because opening vent you relieved pressure making pump turn free. I would move and squeeze the lines and see if you hear a change in the pump.

If you have the 1/2npt14 that means 1/2 national pipe thread 14 threads per inch . So your adapter needs to be 1/2npt14 to hose fitting. The m14 could also stand for 14 millimeter which could be the case.

Phil, the chocolate stout is alittle more chocolate than coffee so like there web site says cheese cake or fruit tart or vanilla ice cream would work well. The menu sounds delish.

Equipment and Software / Re: propane vs natural gas
« on: January 14, 2013, 02:26:20 PM »
Tom does the burner have a regulator or any gas line attached to it? You could use it as propane by changing the jets if it is a gas burner.

northern brewer says 1.036 ppg and 4-5 srm hopr that helps

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Well...I drank my first homebrew

Try to get the temp up to 68 or 70 for bottle conditioning. Take 2 bottles and move to a warmer area let sit a few days and see if notice a difference between one sitting at 65 and one sitting at 68-70. Good luck and start your second batch already. :)

One make sure wort is around room temp when using refractometer I know letting my wort sit in a spoon for a min shows big swing in gravity reading. 2 put on shoes.

1. Did you stir your runnings? If not that can give you a low reading. 2. Why did you keep collecting when you should of ended with around 7 to7.5 gallons that extra water will lower your starting gravity and does nothing for you.
