  1. I didn't write anything other than FG in the notes from mine. Mine finished at 1.010, but I mashed at 149°. If you remember I mashed low because I failed to check my mash profile in BeerSmith. We are own worst enimies at times by not double checking. This time I mashed at 154°, I'll take a reading when I get a chance and let you know where it's at.
  2. Mine is chugging along. I forgot how slow 007 works. Worried me at first with the slow activity. My package may be there now, so you will have one to tie you over till yours is ready.
  3. John, I have a Stone Levitation clone going now that I used WLP007 yeast that was washed last December. I made a 1500mL starter that took a little longer to get going, but once it did it took off. The beer was going within 12 hours of pitching the starter.
  4. Congratulations on the beer.....ah...err.....I mean boy!
  5. I hope this was a typo and should have read 156°. If you drop those grains into 176° water it's not going to end well. It will settle out at about 170° just a little high on the mash temp side. If you ment to type 156° then carry on. Hell don't mind me. Right after I posted the last to posts showed up (man-o-man gotta love the new forum). It must be how your profile is set up. If I want to mash at 154°, 162° is as high as I go. and most of my mashes are 152° or less. Nothing to see here carry on and glad it worked out for you. Hope to see you in September
  6. This is what it is about, family and beer. Good on ya Rob. Besides it's only about 100 gallons of beer, I've done 80 this year myself.
  7. Carbonation and a glass? Sorry Jim couldn't resist. I don't have BeerSmith up and I'm heading to bed. Don't know anything of caraamber to be of any help and I weigh my hops in oz. As always I'm sure someone will chime in.
  8. What did you end up using hop wise? How much and what times? I did 6 gallons of the Levitation today and was giong to put my SSR on half the yeast cake.
  9. Dancing Banana, Dancing Banana, Dancing Banana.....sorry it's the best I can do. Laugh Face. I'm really glad it turned out well for you Paul. You, me and just about everyone else aren't liking the "radical" update. Frowny Face
  10. It will in about 2 weeks Chris.
  11. Trust me, we were ALL at the "scary" part of our brewing at one time or another. Now alot of it is just 2nd nature and we wonder what the big deal was. I found that a milk crate put one LBK at the correct height for transfer to the other.
  12. Holy GREAT glass of goodness. It's only been on the gas for 5 days, but man-o-man I can see what all the fuss is about.
  13. Starter pitched at 67° and it's in the chamber. OG of 1.048 at 6.25 gallons, wierd, just weird. Last time it was 1.048 at 5.5 gallon. Maybe I'm getting better at this "brewing stuff".
  14. Mash has been steady at 154° for the last 15 minutes, pulled and decanted the starter, all systems are go. Well except for this place. I hope it gets better.
  15. Ok, 2nd dry hop went in on 7-25 and I dropped the temp to 40°. Put a hop sack on the end of my tube and kegged it Wednesday 7-31. Since it was cold I just put it in the Keezer and turned on the gas. FG was 1.012 so ABV of about 8.5%. The hydro sample was amazing. Let my wife try the sample "How can you like this" she said. "How can you not" was my reply. If this forum goes to hell in a handbasket. Paul, Ron, Chris and David I've got you covered.
