Re: Actual Values and BIABacus

I can get the Dry Hop treatment but shouldn't the actual loss amount from kettle to fermenter impact the Volume at Pitching ? How is that number calculated (or how do i get that number to appear)? I'm basically looking for stepwise refinements on my way to the bottling process in terms of increasin...

If you like it now, just wait until it gets all the bells and whistles plugged in. This site is under a massive facelift. No more links, just information one or two clicks away. ;)

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.

Sounds like a potential XBMTS from the Brulospher.

I would want to see a controlled comparison before accepting a lot of what is offered there.
lol, they did one.

Re: Cooking with beer

Well well, much to my surprise my beer finished nicely. My 2L flask finished at 3 °Brix and one of my two fermenters finished at 3.7.

I have a 5.9% beer. ;)

Re: Newbie Fermentation question.

You will want to ferment that one at 65F. With your options, start at 62.6F for the first 6+ days, then move to a warmer spot from about 8 days. 21 days would be the outer limits, if you are doing this just on weekends.

Cooking with beer

I had my first ever bad brewday (Premature Mashout). The FG is at 7.6 °Brix after two weeks in the fermenter and am looking at about a 3% ABV.

I'm planning on kegging it all and see if this will make an enjoyable drink and if anything else just cook with it. Anybody have any input?

Re: 90 Minute boil with no early hops?

You're not wrong with that idea. My last brew I targeted for 70 mins. and an 8% evaporation rate. I noticed in the BIABacus that the efficiency drops when boil time drops. I've read that the minimum is 60 mins. at 6% evaporation rate, but that's at the threshold of DMS risk. DMS for the most part go...

I brewed this recipe again. Last time was over Thanksgiving holiday. Both were double batches and they were the first and second brew in my new 20 gallon kettle. The grain absorption rate was set at 0.6 l/kg the first time around and worked out well for me, in fact came out with a little more volume...

Scott, I wouldn't overthink it on your first attempt on this NEIPA style. Add a pump and a whirlpool arm later if you feel like it You are only talking about a few ounces after flame out. After forty minutes is up after flame out, just pull your spider (squeeze the hops if you like) and then chill (...
