Going to help a newer brewer

Good morning. Today I will be going over to help a friend brew, not his first one, but one with another brewer. The only unknown variable will be his water. Bottled water from…. I just can’t say it Wa,… Wa. Nope, won’t. Anyways, I’ll bring some L Acid and C acid, gypsum and pH meter. Just to enjoy this a bit more, a friend gave me some hop cones from a centennial bine, maybe 4 oz’s, I may just dump the whole kitt’n caboodle in! I haven’t a clue on AA. He’s got an APA kit… Me first kit in… many years. Sneezles61

I just did a fresh hop brew. I put them in a bag and after chilling squeezed the bag and really didn’t use much extra liquid. I had calcites a little larger batch to make up the difference. Since you are doing a kit you won’t want to add extra water so I would do as is. Just my 2cents. Good luck

If it helps, he’s only got an 8 gallon kettle… I told him not to worry, if we are under his volume, it’ll just be a wee bit stronger! Sneezles61

Put a jug of water in the fridge and top up

NY and LA in London today

We will have it on at noon. You gotta be prouder than a peacock as a vikings fan. We are out in front, alone! As long as I’ve been watching, 30 plus years, this is a first! Don’t fall down on us now! Giants? That will be a fun game to watch! Sneezles61

I hate the pats but there are obviously a lot of NE fans around here and I love to remind them MN is 5 & 0 They give me the old Brady wasn’t playing excuse. NY isn’t going anywhere this year so maybe I’ll root for the Vikings

Yeah we have Pat fans here too. For some reason, one our guys git hurt, send in another, and we hardly miss a beat. We’ve got depth, from drinking great home brew? Had to tie this back to brew! Sneezles61

Brew went better than the game… Kit suggest 1.045, this guy got 1.050, I gave him an atta boy! Sneezles61

Kits seem to always predict a bit low it seems so you guys nailed it.

Not the Bills? Didn’t look great against the Dolphins yesterday though.

I hope they beat NE

We may have to start a football thread? Sneezles61, Oh yeah, did I say we may have a win next Monday?:stuck_out_tongue:

This is your thread so I guess you can hi jack it.

I need help!:relaxed: Sneezles61

Just looked it up playing the Bears should be a win. Chicago not doing well this year.

Of the last 8 times we were there, we won once…:disappointed: Sneezles61
