Re: Belgian Pale Ale. What do experts think?

I've been lurking in the background because I couldn't figure out why your second hop addition had 0 as the amount of hops to add. It finally hit me that you've input the addition of these flavor hops at 60 minutes, same as your bittering hops. If you change the "Min" of your second hop addition (se...

Re: I think I am ready

Hey Fat I agree with Shorepoint's suggestion that you use a tried and true Biabacus recipe for your first BIAB brew. The one he suggests is the one I (and many others) started out with, with good reason: it's already filled out (modify for your kettle size and desired VIF) , there's a methodology to...

Thomasgoffe, welcome to the forum! Listening is good, but asking questions is good too. Roggenbier is an interesting selection for your first BIAB beer - have you brewed this before? Keep the forum posted on how it turns out.

Re: Be careful what you wish for

Well, I did go for it and bottled a few weeks ago. I didn't rack into a secondary. I let the beer sit on all the trub for about 3 weeks while fermentation finished, then bottled. The beer conditioned in the bottle for 3 weeks and then I cracked a bottle. The result was a nicely bittered beer, with n...

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

Possum55 - once I started using the Biabacus I realized how cumbersome the English measurement method is. Up until recently I was still measuring the total water needed in gallons, but I've started just measuring the head space in the kettle (in inches - I don't have a metric ruler). Anyway, give it...

Welcome to the forum Luisito. There are quite a few small batch brewers here - do a search for Mini BIAB to start. Be sure to read Clear Brewing Terminology and then start diving in (http://biabrewer.info/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2685). This site is a deep well of knowledge on brewing.

Welcome Dr_Hops! There's a whole lot of information on this site. Ask quetions and you'll always get some good responses back. There seem to be quite a few small batch brewers, which makes sense as BIAB is well suited for experimentation.

Re: Be careful what you wish for

Thanks for the reply SP. Regarding the boiloff, the BIABacus missed by a bit but that was probably due to a very vigorous boil. Of course there's always user error. The weather was in the mid 70s so that wasn't really a factor. I'm really not sure whether to rack to a secondary (and if so when?) or ...

Be careful what you wish for

I've been swallowed up in a project for the past few months and finally finished a few days ago. My neighbor is moving and gave me a conical fermenter, a SS 60L brew pot with outlet valve and a thermometer, and a 14" propane burner, along with some other stuff. I was itching to make a run at brewing...

Conical Fermenter

I just purchased this conical fermenter from a neighbor who is moving out of state. I've been thinking about getting a conical set up for a while so this seemed like a good deal. It's been around the horn a few times, but still looks good. I doubt if there's much to go wrong with it. It came with a ...

Hey Clackers - you're exactly right! I too have spent many a 5 minute session on this site reading a topic, and a couple hours later realized, well, it was a couple hours later.

What a great community!
