Homebrew Con 2018 / Spilling the beans: 2019
« Last post by guido on June 22, 2018, 10:32:56 PM »
I'm getting ready (and excited) to leave for Portland on Monday. As an East Coaster, I'm also excited about Homebrew Con 2019 (hopefully) being in the East next year. I know there are NDAs about this, but when can someone spill the beans about the 2019 location? Even a hint, please.

I got me some of that Amoretti Watermelon Purée. I added one pump to a glass of English Summer Ale. Not bad. 10x better than that crap I ruined a whole 5 gal batch with last summer. Plus, now I don’t have to drink 5 gal of Watermelon Beer. I can have a few glasses and call it good. The Gkids can add the rest of it to soda or water.

Wow, Denny, I read the blog link and it has been so long now that I forgot it was Mark C. who initially advocated the method.  I miss that dude on here - he really knows his stuff.

Yeah.  Wonder how he's doing?  Kept in touch for a while after he left here, but he kinda faded away

You could turn off the pressure, shake the keg, turn the keg over and shake it again in order to fast carbonate so you can drink today.  Of course, this will shake up all the sediment.  If the pressure drops below your desired pressure, open and close the valve and shake again.

Equipment and Software / Re: Anvil Bucket vs. SS Brew Bucket
« Last post by case thrower on June 22, 2018, 07:39:42 PM »
I have both the BB Mini and the 4 gallon Anvil. I only use the BB when I need an extra fermenter. The biggest issue as others have pointed out is the rubber foot. Makes every task a much bigger PITA. I think the larger versions have welded feet. I do also like the slightly larger volume. I have less blowoff problems and can make slightly larger batches.
I've got a 4.4 mini-fridge for my fermentation chamber and right now I'm using 3 gallon better bottles.  Any idea if the 4 gal Anvil will fit in a mini-fridge?  Looks like those handle do stick out quite a bit.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Steeping Temp

Gents, thank you.  Is there a particular benefit to steeping for longer?  Do you end up with more body and 'schmock' in the finished product?

Maybe, but no guarantee.  You'll have to decide that for yourself.

If I want to quick carb a beer I keep it at 30psi for 30 to 36 hours and then turn it down to serving pressure. 
In another 24 to s6 hours it's usually well carbonated. I add gelatin to the keg before transferring beer so the finings are working as it carbonates.
