Re: Adding LME or DME to fermenter??

I have never done that, but the yeast would work on that too.

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Your file indicates a 36.6L kettle, is that correct? Yet you say 27L.

Re: Did I ruin it?

You were totally protected there with the active yeast. No worries at all!

If it's an ale it is probably done or close to it in 14 days.

What is the beer and yeast?

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Not sure how/if possible to step-mash with a baby burco?

If this is your first all grain, then try to target for 65° C for 90 minutes, if you feel it's possible then use 65° C for 40 mins., then 72° C for 30 mins., then 78° C for mins.

Fast ferment test and a PP trick

Recently I picked up on something new I have never done until now . I got interested in the low oxygen brewing website and picked up another (cold side tip). Ever since I have been pressure fermenting I have been just letting it ferment all the way it would go, then at FG do the closed transfer to a...

Re: Birthday Cheers

Thanks guys. ;) I got my first lager close to finishing gravity now, finishing up in the serving keg. It's a Weihenstephaner Original (aka Helles) clone. I'll end up posting the details later.

Re: I'm thinking of buying a...

I have about 2 photos of it and one video, found in my signature. The video is from when I used a keggle. If you look carefully the two photos show it drapped over the kettle, I still hang it on the rope after the bag is pulled.

P.S. I was acting the fool in the video, lol

I had a chance to get on a regular computer today. I re-read post #1 and pulled up your file. :) ... and your actuals are there. :) Everything looks good there. After your dilution in the fermentor, looks like that brought you down to OG 1.060. Nice efficiencies. One thing that would increase the bi...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Enter in a "B" just to the right of "4oz Corn Sugar" as that will re-adjust the starting water (no absorption for this).

I hear that 55C is a good first mash step and the 64.5-65C (you have listed) is a safe gelatinization temp.

Re: Whoops, screwed the pooch..Big Time

my experience with nottingham is that it is very aggressive and leaves less residual sugars than normal London yeast I have used it for some medium strong brews, up to about 7.5%. and it chewed right through it. Now over that, I usually finish off a brew with champagne yeast, such as my Heavy Scotc...
