Re: My first brew ever - a mini-BIAB All Amarillo APA

Well did it finish? I normally leave ales in for 7-10 days; try leaving them in a day or two after I think they are done before checking gravity. Checking gravity - between OG and FG. When finished it would be FG (Final Gravity). ;) At the start is the OG - Original Gravity... Easy to get the terms ...

Hello OldGoat, Very nice to hear you're still alive and kicking...! ;) Is that town up near Delonoga? (Mountain Phase of a particular army school I attended was there.) How is the water (for brewing)? Any good craft breweries (besides the one at your house)? :drink: For sure could see the difficulty...

Welcome to the forum, Aaron & Dr. Strahov... ;) Aaron - I am from Oregon as well... Hopefully your kit has all the things you need. It's not too difficult, but can be best to ask questions before. Oh well, it will make beer and I think you will like it, so "no worries"... I started with extract, the...

Re: Does anyone have 15 gal MegaPot profile for Beersmith?

Our BIABacus Excel file makes estimates for all of these factors, after you input kettle dimensions, ingredients and boil time, and you can later adjust if routinely over or under after several brews... Or can leave the defaults. That's what I do (most others leave the defaults alone too). Things ch...

Hello Oli, Let me take a quick stab at this for you... Initially for my first 20 batches they were almost all around 5 gallons into packaging or a tad over, around 19 liters. Then I had several where I brewed extra because..it turns out, I drink too much beer. :dunno: ;) :thumbs: Then I had some guy...

Hello Kenbar, and welcome. No problem on equipment recommendations. But some questions we will have include how large batch sizes do you want to have? Here in the USA, common to have 5 gallons / 19 liter into packaging (keg or bottles). Wish to keg, or to bottle? What kind of space do you have? Deta...

Welcome Goonoli!

Let us know what questions you have, if there are any. Best time to ask equipment questions is before you purchase equipment (or before a loved one purchases for your birthday).

Hey Miles, Let me take a stab at helping you again on this...

Re: Value!

Hi Steamer, I'll try to take a closer look tomorrow.

One thing I saw is the OG - how displayed - looks different. So discrepancy may be in that field somehow...

Also, if not changing the OG you don't have to put anything in the "what I will use" field.

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

I think the question is functionality with the NEW site, not this one... So this site works, but when Pat tests things out, some browsers do not operate properly with the new site, and some "things" don't function like they are supposed to.
