    Um did you try calling or emailing? Iíve ordered direct from them for a while now and have been able to get Belle, Nottingham, BRY-97, Munich Classic, WildBrew and even the new Koln before it was...

    Perhaps more detail is in order, however I donít see why it would take you more than 2 days to empty a bright if you only have one. For rough calculations my old POS Cask SAMS line was three head...

    I have personally canned many varieties specifically on Wild Goose and on Cask at above 2.6 volumes. This was both at almost 9,000ft and at sea level. One IPA would be targeted to 2.65 and other...

    Viability, Vitality, and cell density will not be negatively impacted by a 60*F fermentation. It will probably benefit those, if anything. You won’t be likely to see negative impacts on...

    You can rest assured the yeast will be fine. The beer would probably be fine too if you Lager it properly. It will likely have some higher esters still, however depending on the Lager this may not be...

    I wouldnít want anything that would fill a hole in my trunk line also running through my chillers HX. Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    Pure oxygen is toxic to yeast (and other living tissues). It is therefore, in effect, sterile. A virus may be able to survive in a pure O2 environment, but it would not support the host, so the virus...

    The Anton Paar CBox has been my favorite tool of them all, but quite expensive. Last setup I quoted was around $22K USD. Cheaper options are The Beverly by Hamilton, and Orbisphere by Hach. I believe...

    I have used Toyota, Mitsubishi, Hyster, Doosan, Mahindra, Hemmech (sp?), and at least 3-4 more I can't recall off the top. All have been just great when treated with respect. Even those that were...

    This is exactly why I use a Sonkir unit from Amazon for about $12 (and that was a mid-range unit). Has worked flawlessly.

    I believe all these ďcheaposĒ use an EC measurement that is converted to...

    If you have the carb stone at an angle, you will certainly loose some surface area contact time when the bubbles reconnect as they rise through the beer. The less the degree of angle the better. The...

    Iím a big fan myself. Like the crystal malts a lot, and did a Baltic Porter with the Perla Negra and Dk Chocolate. Came out really nice. Quality kernel size and sorting, not many broken kernels....

    PAA is effective into the pH 8 range. I have seen studies suggesting that at a pH of 8.2-8.4 PAA can still be plenty effective as a food grade sanitizer. This is why we often measure concentration by...

    I am a huge fan of NaOH and KOH and would still recommend acid based detergents on kegs. Cost is a bit better yes, but you are more prone to see beer stone build-up in kegs. NaOH/KOH would...

    Diacetyl is created by spontaneous oxidation of a-acetolactate (AAL) which is secreted from the cell during the lag and exponential phases after yeast inoculation. The AAL is produced as a precursor...

    I will second this. 3.2-3.5 is a good spot, but measuring total acidity is preferred to pH.

    I have found BRY-97 from Lallemand to be very aggressive and perform well for low pH wort too. Cali...

    Never found the need for things like this before. Just fill and aerate appropriately.

    Nothing says you can't use NaOH/KOH every time. You can't use it for passivation though. It won't remove free iron.

    I would suggest you add calcium to help aid in flocculation of the yeast. I would bet adding CaSO4 or CaCl would drop the yeast and leave the haze you would expect to see. This should help with both...
