Kegging and Bottling / Re: Closed vs under pressure transfer
« Last post by mabrungard on Today at 01:41:09 PM »
martin - dumb question, I don't understand what purpose the tube is serving?  do you fill it with CO2?  how is it different than the other ambient air?

The tube is a regular blow-off. Its advantage is that it takes a lot of internal volume change to actually suck back air into the fermenter.

There is a gas-in corny post fitted onto the top of the fermenter. During lagering temp step reductions and during beer transfer, I supply CO2 into the fermenter via tank and regulator. You can just barely see the corny post in the picture I posted.

Akorn is 100lb and has wheels. ;)

That basically what I've done.  I'll probably transfer to a secondary soon.   When should the priming sugar be added and how long before bottling?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Belgian Dark Strong / Quad Stalling?

My yeast was from a starter that I started with two packs of 3787 and 3 quarts of starter wort.  Then I crashed, decanted, and added three more quarts of wort.  Based on standard calculations I should have had pitched enough yeast.

Maximum cell density is around 200 billion cells per liter.  Once you hit that, you aren't going to get any more growth. 

So pitching slurry from a 3 liter starter into a second 3 liter starter is only going to net you more cells to the extent you didn't hit the maximum density in the first starter. 

I'm not saying that's your issue, just pointing it out for future reference.

Any insights from the Sacramento judging centre?  It seems like the results are coming out slower than the other competition sights - I wonder if they had a higher volume of beers to judge?

Someone posted a little earlier that they didn't finish up on time. They had several big competitions in the area so seemed to have issue getting everything done on time. It's definitely not a volume issue as all the regions had similar numbers of entries.

General Homebrew Discussion / IPAs and Me
« Last post by Ron Gale on Today at 11:55:15 AM »
Oddly enough, even as the OP in this thread, my votes for Best Beer this year included IPAs (Bell's Two Hearted, Cigar City Jai Lai, Lagunitas Lil' Sumpin' Sumpin'). 
My favorite IPA that I've brewed I used 5 ounces of hops. Pretty sure that's about all a Bell's clone calls for.  I like many IPAs, but the ones I enjoy the most are on the more moderate side.
