I got one of these after reading his posting >and am very very pleased with it. I missed the June 28 issue and this sounds like something I could use. My beer refridgerator won't go above 40 degrees at its warmest setting. I would like to go a little warmer for my lagers. Were would I look for this thermostat and how do you install it?

I'm heading to St. Louis over labor day weekend, partly to see how the big kid on the street makes his beer. (A.B.) What else is there to see in town, brew-wise? Any and all hints will be greatly appreciated. Return to table of contents
Date: Fri, 25 Aug 89 16:06:06 -0400 From: Arun Welch <welch at cis.ohio-state.edu> Subject: root beer question I've had varying results with root beer, all of them bad, so I can tell you what *not* to do: 1) Don't under-sugar. I had one batch which had great form (as in looked right, produced a good head, etc.), but I'd forgotten to add enough sugar for both the fermentation and flavor. I ended up with sugar-free rootbeer. It worked fine for floats, where the icecream provides sugar, or if you're diabetic, but otherwise it's pretty rank. IN conversation with a friend who used to make the stuff as a kid, he said that they'd mix it up, bottle it, then put the crates under the stairs in the basement. They'd wait until they heard a couple bottles explode, then they knew they were ready... 2) Do get a good extract, or brew from bark yourself. I had a batch that had everything except for the fact that the starting extract was off. I've given up on rootbeer, and gone back to the malt kind. ...arun Return to table of contents
