    Diablo IPA with US-05

    hmmmm i bought mine from my HBS. fits in there perfect, but it's loose. maybe i'll try the MRB next time i order from them.

    Diablo IPA with US-05

    i was wondering about that. i bought a bottling wand recently and noticed it fit inside the spigot. Fit pretty loose. Is that how it's supposed to be used?

    Diablo IPA with US-05

    i like that hose barb on the spigot. that would be handy for a bottling wand or something like that.

    Leaking Spigot

    i know this doesnt help now but im 3 for 3. all 3 of my lbk's needed sanding around the outside edges. when i tested them initially for leaks as per the instructions they all failed right out of the box. many batches later they all work great now!

    that's an old school LBK. I like it! hope your brew turns out excellent.

    BrewMax Booster won't dissolve??

    i know they say to add it to cold water and stir it in till it dissolves. i usually add it at flameout at the same time i'm adding the HME can, LME....etc. Yes, i believe that yeast will chew up any chunks of sugar that are not dissolved, but i doubt they will stay clumps for long once they're in the wort.

    Miller Lite

    wow.....had no idea about some of my favorite brands. don't know if I will stop buying modelo negra and space dust, but good to know. more likely to support my local HBS or MRB and buy the ingredients to try and replicate brews that i really like.

    Partial Mash

    you know what i did? i just threw the hops in with the boil (no sacks). i also cold crashed and didn't have any issues with hops floating around. When we're all drinking home brew we don't pour that last 1/4" anyway, so you'll be good! folks on this forum know far more than me about methods (and crystal malt types....jeesh!) It turned out fantastic for me. i like super citra hopped brew. I did throw 1 sack in for the dry hop though.....

    Partial Mash

    i have only used pellet hops. never used whole leaf hops.

    Partial Mash

    my lhbs asks me if want grains milled or whole, i didn't know either at 1st, but you want them milled. when you get grains from mr beer in a PM kit, they are milled/crushed.
