  1. I waited to offer my opinion, but I cant wait any longer. just stick to single infusion. Its more straight forward and easier with your setup. Beersmith should already figure in your volumes for boiling water additions but I still never liked it. The only reason I step mash is when Im doing traditional german lagers. It also raises my abv, which is nice. scrap the setup, use the 10 gal bk as a 5 gallon biab setup. You can step mash all you want with that.
  2. Ordered the following: Mangrove liberty bell Ale yeast us-05 omega c2c farmhouse camping / survival packs are done. Time to get back to brewing
  3. How many people here have brewed with the Pink Boots Blend? Me, @Nickfixit, and @Cato? Anyone else?
  4. You still gotta get up earlier than that. Though our motives for waking up are way different. I envy yours
  5. Looks good! Very good is only good enough to some. Reaching for that next level is a rewarding and frustrating journey
  6. Just ordered all the ingredients for vienna lager brew #3. Then I checked the “bargain bin” and saw they have pale extract 3.3 lbs half off so I bought 8! Little Chute run tomorrow
  7. Im in, i ordered 8 oz of pink boots and 8 oz of the veterans blend. Figured just like my two boys, I cant pick favorites. I have so many hops. Like so many hops. Im almost my own LHBS at this point
  8. Thinking about a double brew day today. I have all the ingredients for a recipe I stole from @Jdub. It was gonna be called “jackin jdub“ but I quickly realized that was the worst possible name ever. Also, “Jackin Jesters” got changed to “Jester King Yeast”. In my language jacking means stealing but I believe theres a second meaning out there also. anywho, the vienna lager isnt doing the greatest in competition so Im not going to waste my money sending that to NHC.
  9. Behind the scenes, he put his glasses on. Then took a deep breath of relief. its like when im searching the house for my hat and then I ask my wife where my hat is and she says “its on your head”.
  10. bad news:
     

    Went to get my CO2 tank filled. It needs recertification. So I had to leave it there. No tap beer this weekend i guess

     

    went to a plumbing showroom to see if they sell commercial faucets. The fancy kind with the sprayer and all. $800, yeah, no thanks.

     

    i just picked up roughly 3.5 gallons of dog poop in anticipation of the 9” of snow thats on the way this weekend. 


    good news:

     

    black stones are on sale at wal mart. $175 for the 28” three burner model with a hard cover! Thats a steal

     

    my new lodge 12” Preseasoned carbon steel pan arrived today. I did a quick seasoning, fried an egg and it skated across the pan easily. BLTs on the menu tonight! 

  11. I ordered 40’ of beverage line. I switched one line from the 3’ to 10’ and left my psi at 10, let the line cool for a bit and guess what? I poured a perfect 🍺. I guess I was wrong and now I will be switching all my lines over. Thanks boys!
  12. Interesting. I was gonna try a black ipa with the darkest belgian candi syrup. Im not sure if that has much roasted flavor
  13. Extremely likely. Or at the LHBS too. I bought a plastic one years ago. One tee, 3 clamps, done and done
  14. You could just tee the line. If you have the space for two kegs. otherwise, what i do is fill keg, purge a few times, then crank it up to 20 to set the seals. Then i store it away. It wont be fully carbed but youll be a day or two closer.
  15. Im no expert on the 23 yeast but I will say that im about to brew a pilsner and normally id ferment at 55 but it recommends 58 to decrease sulfur production. Kind of counter intuitive
  16. Is this your own recipe or one you found? whos malt extract is it?
  17. IS IT A FRICKEN HOLIDAY TODAY OR WHAT?!?!?! BRING ME MY STUFF UPS!!!
  18. Waiting on a package that my brew day is depending on and also another package from a friend. Both better say “out for delivery” or this guy has some plans to change for the day
  19. I looked up my results and then verified through email with the city. Then a friend tested my water for me. Id go with the report but i dont know your water system. In places like cali it changes all the time
  20. Where did you get the numbers from? your city should have a public water report. My citys told me everything but the bicarbonate
  21. Ive had the last straw and i now have the blichmann beer gun. I like blichmann better. Blichmann Beer Gun https://youtu.be/MOHQ39iTxyI
  22. One thing to mention with filling from the tap line, is sanitation. I have a ball lock disconnect that screws right into my tap but id never bottle a beer from it cuz I dont trust the tap being clean like my beer gun is. I also have a growler filler attachment for my taps which you could fill a bottle with like @RickBeer said but its not the ideal way to do it.
  23. Well, for the first time I renewed my AHA membership into a three year subscription. I got a free book, a sticker and a carabiner coffee mug. Not to mention the savings in money. Starting the day off well if you ask me

  24. Where do you go when youre a Wisconsin native who hasn’t eating in over a day?
