Welcome to the forum Kelso and D2dubb :clap:

Looks like both of you are new to brewing and BIAB? And D2dubb jumped straight into eBIAB, did you build or buy it?

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.

Question: The original recipe called for 1.056 OG and actual was 1.070 (did a pretty fine crush) my understanding is that I should have added 5.0L at into fermenter at beginning of fermentation (as per calcs derived from Section N) to bring the SG down, would love if someone could confirm this appr...

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...

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.

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.
