Re: East Fremantle Brew Day - Sun 19th

I'll pop over if I can get a cheap flight :lol: . If I don't make it here is a recipe I did a while back. I didn't follow the original but used it as a base for some grains I had left over so it turned out as a Belgian brown. It was strong and the wife limited me to a couple of pints a night as it m...

Re: What's Happening to BIABrewer in 2017

Good to hear from you Yeasty  ;) I did post a belated happy birthday to you in the birthday thread but, in your honour probably, one of the powers that be must have pressed a wrong button because the site self-closed for 7 hours after that. :smoke:   :lol: I think MS posted somewhere as well that t...

Hi Ed and Welcome to the forum. You'll find everything you need here and there is always someone around to help you out if you get stuck. You can use AG recipe packs but you are better off scaling a well written recipe and asking the supplier to make up a pack of your requirements. You can scale any...

But depending on you lhbs and whether you have acv as to a mill designing recipes could be more difficult so buying a premise recipe can help you learn the process without having to worry about the extra steps.

Nothing wrong with brewing kits, they are a great way to learn the process without having a bunch of other things to worry about. Once you take the leap you'll find it wasn't as big as it looked from the other side! Really ? I can see the attraction but I think a better way to start is with a simpl...

To explain further. Biabacus will scale the recipe using the numbers inserted at the top of section C. Either the original recipes OG or your desired OG. When you correct this figure to 1.064 the "What you will use" amounts will closely match the NB recipe. This difference is usually down to convers...

In your file Section C has a figure of 1.044 entered. This should be the original recipe OG figure of 1.064.

I'd say the burner will work once you have adjusted the air intake BUT unless you are brewing outside I'd go electric. These burners give out as much heat downwards as upward so unless you have a solid heat/fireproof surface to put it on I'd give it a miss.

Some pressure cookers come with different steam nozzle weights for different cooking temps,mine (second hand)came with just the one (15g) which according to the manufacturer results in an internal temp of 121c at 15psi.

I use a cheapy pressure cooker with just 1 weight which gives me 15psi. I don't think a pressure gauge is a must have. I've made about 50 slants with it and only used about 20 of those for yeast the rest are in a drawer. Only 1 has failed and that is only 1 little colony of something. :peace: Yeasty
