  1. First time I used the bottling wand I learned a lesson... Best to start it with liquid in it prior to trying to fill it in bottle or secondary. I left some sanitized water in the line so I didnt have any bubbles then let the first little bit off in a glass... It also helps to have the LBK at higher ground than your secondary/bottles... After that, it was smooth sailing. Hope this helps...
  2. That sounds bad ass. That should be a ton of fun and a hell of a challenge... Good luck!

  4. russki... I am in Northwest Indiana. Three Floyds is the best. My favorite is Alpha King. They have RTB on tap at the horseshoe in Hammond... Veddy Veddy Good...
  5. thanks y'all!! I will probably through the glass bottles in there. I read on the borg somewhere that the best way to remove labels from glass is to through them in with some oxi - so I will be doing that tonight and sanitizing them tomorrow... Thanks again...
  6. Borg... I was wondering if running my PET MrBeer Bottles through the dishwasher WITHOUT ANY SOAP is a safe way to do a quick sanitize on the bottles. I would still use the cleaning solution provided; however, I was wondering if this would be a way to get them cleaner - especially considering they had a different brew in them last time... Any suggestions are WELCOME!

I think I know the answer... :laugh: On my batches I just assume the first phase is all done in a week, dry hop, then a week after that -start checking the gravity to see if it is done yet. :ohmy: I was leaning toward this too... Iw as actually thinking of throwing this in a secondary because there is massive troob @ the bottom of the LBK and I was thinking that the secondary would help with bottling... Is this turning into another thread???
  8. Ok - long story short... Broke the Hydrometer just before testing my batch. It has been in LBK for a week. Just got the new hydrometer and want to see what the gravity is on the beer. Should I perv it or just let it ride the extra week? I need to dry hop in a couple days - should I check it then - or just be patient? I think I know the answer... :laugh:
  9. I need to start growing my own centennial. My LHBS never has them.
  10. I keep both in the fridge. Is that bad?

Oh, I think I know what you mean. Probably a muslin bag. I didn't realize they came in a size for all grain. Thats it...muslin...correctomondo!
