    I've heard that NEIPA's are very susceptible to darkening due to oxidation. Never tried bottling one but that is the first thing that comes to my mind.

    For strainers you'll want 1 big wye strainer near your chiller, that will catch the vast majority of the crap. I don't use any other strainers, but I do keep a ball valve on either side of the...

    I'll third the Zahm. There isn't any real point in going cheaper than one of them.

    I think the distinction is that a brewery can't serve directly from tax determination tanks. I know several breweries that have serving tanks, but they all fill a separate brite first and send some...

    Depends on how your setting up your system. Most glycol systems have a bypass and constantly pump cold glycol from the chiller through the lines. The temp controller is only wired to the solenoid...

    I knew I was missing something simple. Just out of curiosity - have you by chance checked what the water temp is coming out of the HX?

    To be honest I would double check that you have everything on...

    You might be able to get away with the single stage HX, IF it has multiple passes. Otherwise I highly doubt it will do enough. I've found that with 2 passes and 50F ground water I can do ales without...

    Just to make sure, before I suggest anything stupid - you're having 1.5 hr knock outs to chill, but the water test with boiling water is taking less than 30 min?

    I've never tried F-2 in primary, I get it in 20 g packs for bottling and use it only for that. And I've never worried about filtering out the primary yeast, I just use it for bottle conditioning...

    S 04 will work for carbonation, Personally I prefer the Fermentis F-2 as its designed to be used for bottling and sticks very well to the bottom of the bottle.

    I would add extra yest when you...

    Dan,

    I don't personally have one, but I know a few brewers that do (that usually don't post here) From what I've seen and heard they're super easy to use and reliable. Everyone seems to love...

    I've always pitched the full amount of yeast in the first batch and only oxygenated the first batch as well. In my experience adding O2 the second day, when primary fermentation is already going,...

    If you need an expiration date you can try hot/cold cycling your cans to get a good estimate for your shelf life. I don't have the book I got the cycles from in front of me so look it up and double...

    I'm pretty sure its illegal as the volume in the container is less than the label says it is. Personally I wouldn't take the risk to sell them out of the tasting room etc.
    Now if you're giving them...

    Personally I would go with a HX and a small pump to recirculate the CLT. I've seen a couple tanks with coils freeze up around the coils - If you can figure out a way to keep the tank moving enough to...

    Having the mill in the shed should work just fine. I would recommend putting a grist case for milled grain in the brewery somewhere though. Otherwise you're going to have to do some major corrections...

    Figures are very hard to give as they'll be specific to your brewery.

    I would third beer pumps. In my experience beer gas is pretty finiky and for a lot of runs needs a custom blend to keep carbonation levels just right.
    Pumps are just easier to work with and much...

    That's going to depend a lot on your local inspectors. I would suggest you open up the panels and take a look at the components inside. If those components all have UL listings you may well be good...

    I'm pretty sure its a slight mutation of the 1056 strain. I hear its a tad bit more estery and a bit more finiky, particularly in harvesting.

    You could try Rocky Mountain Barrel Co. Last I ordered from them they had a bunch and said they regularly got fresh in. They are in CO so shipping might add up though.

    What I have found helps a lot in getting hops out of the cone before packaging/racking is to start dumping hops as soon as you start to cold crash. after 5 or 6 days most of the hops are already in...
