It is much easier to thoroughly clean/sanitize equipment on a homebrew scale than on a pro scale. Metal and glass parts especially should be no problem. Tubing and such might be more difficult. Putting any parts you can in 180F water for 20 minutes will help too, though your process sounds pretty foolproof already.

The rims rocket is a hop rocket with an electric coil inside for use as a rims heater. The had an electric kettle too.

Since you want to promote oxygen exchange, I don't think it can really be too big.

Yeast and Fermentation / US-05 at low temp
« on: July 03, 2013, 05:34:36 AM »
I remember reading here that US-05 is surprisingly cold tolerate - like down to 50F or so. I've been wondering since if it would make a good yeast for hybrid styles like cream ale. Has anyone tried it?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Growing up a Lacto starter

If you through 1lb of grain in 5 gal of 100F wort, it will be very sour in 24 hrs. A starter is really not needed.

All Grain Brewing / Re: malting your own

There was a presentation on home malting at NHC. Hopefully the video will be posted soon if you weren't there.

I have a side pickup dip tube attached to a long flexible stainless mesh tube that goes around the edge of the pot - and I whirlpool to get most trub in the center.

My wife is uber sick - started yesterday. Luckily I have a cast iron immune system.

My friends method is to sour the whole wort. Inoculate with 1 lb of new grain. Hold 24 hours at 100 in a cooler. Then quickly boil, cool, and pitch yeast. You must keep oxygen out while souring.

You could set the fermentor in a bucket of water with an aquarium heater. That should at least get it to 90. WYeast says a week at 90 will work for their lacto.

Going Pro / Re: Pro opinion on Nanobrewery proposition

All jokes aside, I'm a business analyst in the "real world" and haven't been particularly naïve about the cost of living since I was 11, which was the last time I didn't have a job. Nevertheless, I continue to appreciate everyone's input as I craft the development and production strategy.

That's great - I just tripled your chances in my head.

What about posting of scores on our entry page? ??? Anyone know if those are going to get put up, or why they have not already been posted?
Remember that all AHA and competition staff were at/running/breaking down the conference. They probably didn't leave until yesterday.
