Re: First Brew Completed...Questions

Sorry Pat. Your info is always excellent, but some things were a little unclear to my reading (what process produces which benefit). :geek: Unless I am looking at the process wrong, or misunderstood (after days of computer problems), and either of these is possible... :dunno:

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Welcome to the forum, Grainiac! For sure, ask questions here before purchasing. Get a larger brew pot than you think you need... if you brew mostly 5.5 Gallons Into Fermenter batch sizes, I would recommend to shoot for a pot at least 15-16 gallons, as you may occasionally feel the need to brew a lar...

Avoid calling it anything with the word "blood" in it or your buddies may not want to try it. :argh: Wonder if you could do a secondary ferment with a different Yeast to eat up some more sugar before you bottle...?

Re: First Brew Completed...Questions

Hey Pat, some parts of this are gained from mash and other parts from boil. The heading sentence mentions increasing boil time but I believe two of your four points are actually from the longer mash time. So for clarity... The BIABacus reduces your grain bill if you increase the boil time because of...

Hello Outbreak and welcome to the forum!

Many people do Mini-BIAB, and there is a section / subforum that deals with it. No problem scaling recipes (like from the Brewing Classic Styles book) to smaller sizes using the BIABacus file.

Let us know if you have any questions. :luck:

Re: Hopstand

At this point, I believe neither Hop Stand or Whirlpool are reflected in IBUs. Been testing this out myself recently. It is possible Pat could have some to add.

BIABacus follows Tinseth's IBU estimation formula.

Joel and Pat, for whatever reason we are having problems, on links on the site, it seems to log you off... So may have to go to site, beginners section, and the main thread - think it is topic 1 and 4... BIABacus and CBT.

I'm having the same problem.

Re: Cooking with beer

Good for you! Glad it worked out.

It's often not as bad as it seems. We have to listen to Charlie P's advice of "Relax, Don't Worry, and Have a Homebrew"...or something like that. ;)

Christin, The advice given by Lumpy and MS was good, as lower to mid 60F range is normal ale temperature range. And I brew lots of lagers, almost always fermenting temperature controlled at 50 deg F. HOWEVER...Marshall from Brulosophy.com does lots of brewing experiments. And one of his recent "exbe...

Welcome bebilja,

You have came to the right place! The BIAB process can be as loose and basic, or as complex as you want. Most of us use the BIABacus Excel file to help out our brewing and consistency and I would recommend it, but certainly you don't have to. Let us know if you have any questions.

Re: When to add specialty grains

Are you using the BIABacus file? Was your OG what you expected, or low with your too many liters at the end of the boil? All of this is generally inter-related. If tracking numbers in a BIABacus file, it's normally pretty easy to see where things went south, if they did.

Hi Jube, I've done it both ways... Normally I toss in the specialty grains (Steeping Grains?) at the start and they stay in the whole time. If concerned about too much bitterness and you want 30 minutes contact only, then add last 30 minutes of mash like your buddy suggested. Sounds like solid advic...
