Re: BIAB Kolsch Pictorial essay

Jerry, did you come to the conclusion after using temp control that a cold crash after fermentation works great at getting rid of the trub, and no need to do the extensive filtering...? ;) Bet you did... :thumbs: Pretty interesting thing with the pool.

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

Our BIABacus Excel file makes estimates for all of these factors, after you input kettle dimensions, ingredients and boil time, and you can later adjust if routinely over or under after several brews... Or can leave the defaults. That's what I do (most others leave the defaults alone too). Things ch...

Hello Oli, Let me take a quick stab at this for you... Initially for my first 20 batches they were almost all around 5 gallons into packaging or a tad over, around 19 liters. Then I had several where I brewed extra because..it turns out, I drink too much beer. :dunno: ;) :thumbs: Then I had some guy...

Hello Kenbar, and welcome. No problem on equipment recommendations. But some questions we will have include how large batch sizes do you want to have? Here in the USA, common to have 5 gallons / 19 liter into packaging (keg or bottles). Wish to keg, or to bottle? What kind of space do you have? Deta...

Welcome Goonoli!

Let us know what questions you have, if there are any. Best time to ask equipment questions is before you purchase equipment (or before a loved one purchases for your birthday).

Re: Value!

Hi Steamer, I'll try to take a closer look tomorrow.

One thing I saw is the OG - how displayed - looks different. So discrepancy may be in that field somehow...

Also, if not changing the OG you don't have to put anything in the "what I will use" field.

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

I think the question is functionality with the NEW site, not this one... So this site works, but when Pat tests things out, some browsers do not operate properly with the new site, and some "things" don't function like they are supposed to.

Okay Richard. Actually a great idea is to use the BCS book (Brewing Classic Styles, by Jamil Z and John Palmer) as a guide for their recipes. We know how to scale their recipes easily for BIAB and their recipes are all of high quality. Likely much better final brews doing that than doing SMaSH brews...

Welcome to the site, Richard! Let us know what questions you have. Would recommend using the BIABacus file. And you will want to read the CBT - Clear Brewing Terminology page as well.

If you haven't done a step mash and ever want to - it's a piece of cake with BIAB. Very easy. Partially pull bag and heat to higher temperature, lower bag and cover it again.

Cool deal. Let me know how it works out.

I'm planning to brew a Maerzen Rauch Bier later this summer, for fall consumption. Never have brewed a smoke beer before so will be an adventure.
