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

Re: First Biab, was fun, but had a few hitches

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...

Are you a BIABacus user? If so, post it up here. Include your actuals, then we can begin to answer your bitterness question and you will have a nice visual as to why.

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...

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

Your strike is wrong because your mash temp is set wrong, make sense?

Yeah, it's too aggressive. Your mash is (minus) -12.8 cm short. 16.61 gallons is too much, too high of a percentage to deal with here.

Re: Actual Values and BIABacus

Section L is the record of the volumes you collect during the process (start to finish). They are used to help determine your actual efficiency along with gravities (Section M). If you hit a higher gravity (higher than estimated), you can dilute (Section N) and enter in the new gravity (Section O). ...

Re: Need help understanding BIABacus

I made some adjusts to your file. Use the "what you will use", because BIABacus is calling for a way better efficiency than the 60% stated in the brewersfriend recipe.
