---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2004 08:40:46 -0400 From: Nathaniel Lansing <delbrew at compuserve.com> Subject: 40C rest;_no_math error In checking the text there is no error as previously described. If read carefully it will be seen that there is ample heat in a 16l infusion to hit the next rest temperature with the amount of grist involved. Return to table of contents
Date: Tue, 27 Apr 2004 23:27:14 -0400 From: "William Erskine" <werskin at sympatico.ca> Subject: Star San I have a question regarding the fragility of Star San. I have been using this sanitizer with a great deal of success for over a year now. I am wondering how fragile it is? If I leave a mixture of the solution uncovered for 24 hours, does this affect its sanitizing effect? I keep forgetting to pour it back into the jug I store it in, or sometimes I leave the cap off the jug. Does this weaken its effectiveness?

Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2004 10:50:49 -0400 From: Randy Ricchi <rricchi at houghton.k12.mi.us> Subject: FWH'ing In yesterday's HBD, Dave Burley wrote: "I have been unimpressed with the effect in my experiments. G. Fix had a different opinion. Maybe because I used only noble hops, as is my practice." This reminded me that I have a question I've been meaning to post to the collective. This year I did a couple of CAPs and I decided that I would FWH them, and the only other hops were additional bittering hops that were boiled for one hour. I added no late additions of hops for flavor or aroma. I have noticed that the beer I FWH'd with Hallertau Mittelfruh had very little hop flavor, whereas the beer I FWH'd with Czech Saaz had a very noticeable hop flavor. Has anyone else noticed that some hop strains flavors survive the boil when FWH'ing and other strains do not? Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2004 08:37:24 -0700 From: "Cave, Jim" <Cave at psc.org> Subject: Beer engines... I have been wanting to have a couple of beer engines on my bar for some time now. I have considered buying a couple of Angram beer engines, but the high cost, and difficulty (in Canada) in finding replacement parts and expertise in mainentaining these a bit of an issue. However, I have thought that the concept and design is somewhat straight forward and feel that limited machining and parts may equate to a cost for the pumping portion to be about $75(Cdn) a pair, with the "fancy wood" surrounding box and "pull" to be extra. Anyone out there in HBD land built a beer engine, or has experience with the Angram engines care to post to the greater HBD community? Jim Cave Return to table of contents
