Hi, Thanks for reply. Yes, I meant kettle and the point is indeed to retrieve as much wort as possible and I use Irish moss. I was thinking of using a false bottom but because the heating element is in the way, it would mean taking the heating element off to fit the screen and reverse the operation ...

Trub management with with Peco Electric mash tun

Hi,

Has anyone here tried to hack their mash tun (my question is oriented specifically to electric mash tun) to manage better the trub?

I was thinking of fitting a braid but before I do that I just wanted some feedback or ideas of what you guys have tried or used…

Thank you.

Well, I just gave it a try (yes, it is 1pm, so what?) and it tastes fantastic despite bottled only 3 weeks ago. There is however something wrong with the carbonation (I think). When pouring, there is an obvious coarse carbonation and it looks like pouring coke in the glass (colour is quite close act...

First All-Grain (pics)

Thanks all for your comments. @Alanem, PP: I use the probe that came with the STC straight into the middle of the kettle. the STC is calibrated with ice and boiling water just before brewing to prevent atmospheric pressure to affect the calibration. My readings are consistent with the other 2 thermo...

Hi Lars,

In Scotland :thumbs:

The temperature is maintained by the STC-1000 (in the wooden box) which sensor dips in the kettle.

I may mod the kettle to bypass its own thermostat.

Thanks for the advice Todd. I'll give it a try. MS: yes it is a peco electrim standard not digital. I use an stc-1000 thermostat to control the temperature (once reached I set the kettle to 4 and let the stc do its job). Temperature remained within 2 degrees during mashing.

First All-Grain (pics)

Hi, On Feb 14th, I decided to do my fist all-grain. I initially wanted to do the Ruabeoir but Ididn't have any Pale Crystal so I replaced it with some Crystal 120L and I had a pack of Safale S-04 lying around and decided to use it and used Irish moss instead of Whirlfloc… It's all about experimentin...

Thanks ShorePoints, it looks like BIAB will be easier than I thought. I just need to check about the Whirlfloc replacement and will be good to go :thumbs:

Hi, I'm French and live in the Glasgow, Scotland area. I've been extract brewing for less than a year using a cooper's kit and really enjoy this. I was given (as a Xmas present) a 32L BIAB bin and have not used it yet. I'm not an experienced brewer (yet)... but I think I just found the most active c...
