Topic: Quick easy question re VIK temp
Replies: 4
Views: 1114

My evap rate was incorrectly set to 9.3L/hr ( It was 6L/hr on this brew) so I have used too much water.
Should I continue boiling until it reaches the expected volume? (still not added flavouring hops yet) or will my bitterness go way up?
Thanks

Quick easy question re VIK temp

My VIK is 52L at 100C, should this be entered into BIABacus as 52L or should I allow for shrinkage and enter it as 50L?
Thanks

Yes I did change the KFL to 9L as I think this is what I lost on my last brew.
Is this a worry?

BIABacus PR1.3 - Guzzlerish.xls Im trying to make a beer similar to York Brewery's Guzzler but a little higher in gravity. I'd like to aim for 25Litres into fermentor ( into a no chill cube actually), OG1.045 and an IBU of 39 but I'm not sure if I've entered the correct info into BIABacus. My Boile...

Checked FG today (1.010) and started dropping temp ready for fining. Had to have a quick taste:) Very promising indeed:) Loads of hop flavour - not tried these ones before and I like them. I checked the brix with new refractometer - 6degrees and SG 1.023 I presume the measurement is useless as there...

Hey Yeasty - I bought a stainless bowl similar to yours, I will try it out at next brew day.
I'm planning a Munich Helles based on PP's Tettnang recipe:)

Yeti's First BIAB

I made my Bombay Punk IPA on saturday, my 1st BIAB. I did all the measuring that was on the checklist and have filled in the details on the calculator as much as I can. I worked out my evap per hour was less than avg probably because I had the lid half on during the boil. My efficiency figures seem ...

I think I may have sorted my problem. I found a small diameter but deep sieve with a cranked handle, I bent it more so that the handle can act as a retainer on the thermometer retaining nut. The sieve now sits neatly over the probe:) I can use a normal sized bag now.

I could if I had a blanking plate but dont know where to locate one - plus the Mashmaster thermo would come in handy for monitoring mash temps no doubt:)

Bag design with probe in bad position

Ive reposted here as PP said you guys with electric elements have similar problems and may come up with an answer? Hi I am thinking about a bag for my brewpot and have issues with a thermometer probe – I presume it will catch on the bag as I’m pulling it and rip a hole. Thermo probe is 33cm down fro...

Hi I am thinking about a bag for my brewpot and have issues with a thermometer probe – I presume it will catch on the bag as I’m pulling it and rip a hole. Thermo probe is 33cm down from top of pot and sticks out 14cm. (pot is about 50cmx50cm) I could make a shortened bag that sits in top half of po...

Thank you for the welcome. My "batch size" is referring to the volume into the fermenter. With my usual 19L batch size my loss to trub would be 2.5L. So If I do this 38L brew would my losses to trub double to 5 Litres? Hope this helps. Righto Im off to check out 'bowl and evaporation' :) Cheers ps I...

Hi all. Would someone mind helping me create my 1st BIAB? I have a recipe from my beersmith program as follows. The low efficiency is from my last beer which was strangely different from my past brews. Normally i would expect about 72%ish. My evaporation rate also seemed higher at 26.4% over 90 mins...

Hi all. I'm from the NW of England and have been brewing on and off since 1989! Starting with kits and moved on a couple of years ago to all grain. What a difference! My only dislike is my 7hr brewday so when i heard an interview podcast (think it was Basic Brewing) I became interested in BIAB. I ha...
