Re: My first brew ever - a mini-BIAB All Amarillo APA

Marko, in your first post you said you hoped that your thread would "entertain old hands." Well, I'm an old hand and just had a quick scan of your posts above and I am savouring for when I have the time to relax with a beer and read through it properly. I may not be able to do this for another coupl...

Great post IPAndy and welcome to the forum :salute: Nice job you have there and hopefully you answer questions others have about craft breweries :peace:. There is a lot of info on the site but a lot of it is buried and will remain so until the new site structure is completed. So, if you have trouble...

Re: Does anyone have 15 gal MegaPot profile for Beersmith?

Welcome to the forum Dave :salute: I'm listed as one of the major contributors to BeerSmith 2 so I can certainly check your file if you post it up here. I know the program back to front. This site, which never sells anything, also sold Beersmith 2 for a short time after it's release. This site even ...

You've dodged a bullet there Joe. Glad to see MS was on to you :) A conical has a lot of problems for a home brewer. Here's a few I can think of quickly... 1. Hard to handle 2. Takes up a lot of space 3. Hard to refrigerate (due to 1 & 2 above) 4. A hell of a lot of parts to clean 5. The shape makes...

Sorry for the slow reply Miles, I had to do microsurgery on my motherboard :argh: Stockpots are often labelled for what weight/volume their handles will support while carrying them. The BIABacus gives you the real volume. I think the best bet for you would be to let us know what beer styles you like...

If your Kettle matches the dimensions in your BIABacus file, your kettle will hold 36.6 L. As for the pic, yep, that c...

Good point on the FWH Scott. I usually do two simultaneous side by side brews but, on the occasions I don't, I "double-bag" the mash, pull the first bag after the mash which leaves the second one in place as a hop sock. Also liked reading about drawstrings; it reminds me of how many variations peopl...

Hi Miles, It looks like you are using an old template for a recipe report based on the now redundant "The Calculator." That's the site's fault, not yours. Can you have a crack at filling out as much of The BIABacus as possible and then post your file here? Just have a crack at Sections A, B, C and D...

Re: Replacing some base malt with DME for a BIG Beer

The issue of high gravity beers is not one of single vessel all-grain brewing (SVAG - pure BIAB) versus multi vessel all-grain brewing (MVAG - traditional all-grain); it's a completely different issue, the issue being that you are trying to wash a large amount of grain in a small amount of water.

What I do Jam is use my BIAB bag as a hop sock. After mash-out, I empty my BIAB bag, rinse it under a tap/faucet and then I 'hang' it in my kettle so that it wanders lazily about.

Haven't heard of the premature halt to fermentation crunch :scratch:. Be great if you can find some info on it. It sounds very strange and I'm a bit worried it might be one of those myths that often float about? For example the Wisconson Belgian Red you mention has cherries in it. After degassing, a...
