Thanks, slothrob. Good info on how the physical characteristics of the tablets changed. Although my Campden tablets are a few years old they haven't become enlarged or powdery, so I guess I'll use them until they're gone. I only have a few left anyway. Yeah, I'm still here. I visit the site at least...

In the pane on the left of the screen highlight My Ingredients. Next, go to the top line menu and hover over the printer icon, the one that's third from left. A message should pop saying "print folder contents". Click on that and your list should print.

What temperature is the beer? If the beer is cool carbonation will take longer. Raise the temp to the mid 70's, if it's not already.

Welcome, BigNath! Those fields (TN, SNR, Protein, etc) are for the analysis of a given grain. As an extract brewer I don't think they apply. The only fields you should need to fill in are the Original Gravity and Color. When you fill in the Original Gravity, BTP will calculate the Dry Basis. Hope th...

Welcome! This is a great hobby that has a way of becoming an obsession for many of us. You'll know you've reached that level when you start looking at common household items and wonder how/if you can use them in your brewery.

No need for apologies. I think I actually like your answer better than mine. It sums things up nicely in a succinct description of the process.

You have to manually deduct used ingredients. You do this using the Shopping List. To open the shopping list go to the top line menu and click on Window. You should see a drop down list where you can select the Shopping List. How to use it is explained in Help Topics (Tracking Inventory) from the He...

I agree this would be a good feature. There's currently a thread in the Features Request forum asking to add it. Perhaps folks that want this feature should add their vote there.

I voted for local shop because there wasn't a choice for other. I actually get most of my base grain from North Country Malt as part of a group buy. Hops, specialty grains, and yeast I get from my local shop, The Brew Hut.

I think you're doing enough. In fact, I'm not sure it's necessary to make another batch with the old Campden tablets. You've gotten the same result three times in a row, so I don't think a fourth batch would have a different result. Provided that the new salt solves the problem, I think you've found...

Hi Slothrob. I was wondering if you've had a chance to do your Campden experiment. My Campden tablets are a few years old, so I'm interested in the results.

Hi Airtime, welcome to the forum. Hope you were able to find some CO2. I don't live anywhere near Greeneville so I'm clueless to what is available, but the usual sources are welding supply stores, industrial gas vendors such as AirGas, and places that service fire extinguishers. Also, some homebrew ...

Hi cscade. Have you set up your HLT in "My Equipment"? If not, from the top line menu go Recipe > Add > Vessel. When you set up the vessel you will be able to account for dead space. After that is done the HLT will appear in the recipe. To get it in "My Equpment" just drag and drop. I'm not on a Mac...
