Joshua, The crates will fit the 6 pack carriers for long necks like Sam Adams but not short bottles like Sierra Nevada. If you want to fit the carriers for Sierra Nevada you could increase the width by 1/2 inch and the length by 1/2 inch and it should work. But to be on the safe side I would measure...

Make Your Own Beer Crates

First let me say this is not my idea but I have made several crates and they work well. For reference here is the link I used Beer Crates . https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-DAjxQTqyPvI/UizUDs_ZYjI/AAAAAAAAAPs/ib1H3vwKV2g/w514-h685-no/2013-09-08 Top crate with bottles holds 12 22 oz bombers. This i...

I know what is talking about. I have been trying to watch really closely the amount of beer that I actually bottle compared to what I was expecting to bottle to ensure they are at least close. I usually find myself short 2 or 3 bottles but still no gushers. I agree with PP. You get all kinds of numb...

Bottling bucket modification

This link will take you to a bottling bucket modification that will get practically all the beer from your bottle bucket without tilting. This is not a new mod but it is simple and does a good job. http://www.mrbeerfans.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/215960/Bottling_Bucket.html#Post215960 I di...

Maybe I am doing something wrong but I am planning on upping the amount of sugar I use for bulk priming. I usually use 2 cups of water boiled and then add the sugar to it. Cooling then adding to bottling bucket and stirring to ensure it is mixed. I usually have my beer around 77 degree F while it is...

Bob How much after taste would you get from 4 or 5 ounces. If I was using it to bump up gravity I would use corn sugar but it hardly seems worth it for priming. I have used numerous priming calculators for bulk priming when I bottle. They all tend to give different amounts of priming sugar to add ev...

For my brews, Biabacus results in undercarbonation. I have used what was recommended but today decided I would start experimenting.
I also wanted to know why the default in Biabacus is for Corn sugar. Is that what most folks use who bottle?
I have only used table sugar when I bottle.

Sunny,
Check out the recipes on the forum. There are some really good brewers here that have posted recipes.

I have read posts on other forums where they used sweet potato instead of pumpkin. I love sweet potato pie but never had a desire to have that flavor in my beer.

Good idea Todd,
Never considered a hair dryer as a heat source but I bet it works really well.

Thanks for all the great responses! Yeasty, the fridge is a small bar-fridge, just big enough to fit the 25L fermenter and airlock with the shelves removed. The temp controller sits on top and the fridge is plugged into it. It has another power point for a heating source ie a heatbelt/pad. I tape t...
