    Induction cooktop

    My buddy used to use one. Super nice. I was always jealous of it honestly. But as far as holding a mash temp, it was a little difficult. Not to mention the thing was 220v so he had to run a dedicated line. Where do you live? Im just wondering why a propane burner isnt on your list of options. Its nice brewing inside. I will say that...

    Cold crashing and bottle carbonating

    I’ve lagered beers for a month and a half and still had enough yeast to carb my bottles. So yes, you’ll be ok. I had had a batch one time that took months to carb. Not sure why. But then all of a sudden one day, they were carbed. It’s never happened before, and it’s never happened again. However, I am a firm believer that brewing is a science and any attribute in my beer is there because of something I did in the process.

    Cold crashing and bottle carbonating

    There will almost always be plenty of yeast in your beer to carbonate even after cold crashing. either your beer simply does not want to carbonate or you did something wrong. Ive had both happen to me. I assume you followed the carb for 3 weeks around 70 degrees and then refrigerate for 3 days before drinking? Its gotten colder here by me. 5-10 degrees can make a huge difference

    Hazy IPA dry-hopping tips?

    The whole point of dry hopping to get a hazy beer is to do it during active fermentation to get your hops to have a “bio transformation “. The idea is the interaction between the yeast and the hops turns certain hop oils into more desirable ones. You can pretty much only get the desired result from dry hopping during active fermentation

    Bottling/Conditioning in Growlers

    That wasnt very helpful was it... anyway. Stay away from growlers. Maybe the flip top would work but still, embrace plastic for the time being. Its easier to clean up a bulged bottle vs glass shards from a bottle bomb. Read this forum front and back. It has a nice search option. Otherwise youll just get told to read the forum...

    Bottling/Conditioning in Growlers

    The name brewdog is taken. How can you say this is your first batch when in fact you already have multiple breweries amd even one international one. I wont fall for this...
