As I wrote previously I bought a 3kW heat stick to help speed up my brew day using it in combination with the gas that I previously had. And ...it rocks :thumbs: The advantages are: - I can get the kettle to mash temperature using just electricity which means I can insulate the kettle saving energy ...

Thanks. Ambient temp is about 18-23 Celsius. Heating from 15 to 68 or so is about 80 minutes according to your calculator. It should speed things up to the boil if I use the 8Kw gas (It's a guess I'm can't really remember) + the nuclear powered heat stick ;-) previously it took an hour to reach a go...

Thanks for all your answers. Just out of interest, how and how much do you aerate the wort before pitching?

I had a look over them, thanks. It seems that using a spiral to cool in the fermenter is a halfway step to no chill.

In Hungary I can't find suitable cubes for no chill.

Chilling in the fermenter

Just brewed a biab Schwartz beer 2 days ago and I was talking with my friend who also homebrews. After flameout he leaves it for a bit then swirls to get the trub in the centre then siphons the still hot wort into the fermenter and only then uses a spiral cooler to get the temperature down to pitchi...

Thanks for all of those tips...I'll work something else and post the abacus here and let you know how it goes.

Thanks for those tips...I'm looking to make a really simple beer (i.e. cheap) and in Hungary Amarillo is one of the most expensive hops. Does anyone have experience with Magnum or Aurora or Hallertauer Taurus hops?

Thanks

SMASH recipe

Hi there, Does anyone have a tried and tasted SMaSH recipe (single malt and single hops)? I have access to cheap Weyermann Munich, Vienna and Pilsner malts and want to see how simply I can brew a simple beer. Also one of the great local home brewers suggested that beginners should stick to simple (s...

Hi PP, Thanks for your answer...I just managed to measure my FG and it is down to 1.010 so it all looks like it is ready for bottling tomorrow. :-) It smelt great too... I've only had one offish batch but its always a relief to open the fermenter and be greeted by the Amarillo aroma. Thanks for the ...

A quick update on my demonstration brewday at university. It pretty much all went OK, all gravities lined up with recipe. In the end I went with a borrowed immersion chiller for cooling instead of nochill, my reasoning being that the students can see the process of sanitation and casting in the yeas...

Hi PistolPatch, Thanks for your reply - its always nice to have the opinion of someone who has done a side by side comparison especially when no noticeable difference could be seen. :-) Regarding to swirl or not - the advantage as I see it of swirling is I get a big pile of trub in the middle of the...

When to add hops with no chill for NRB's All Amarillo Americ

Hi there, Just finished my first biab today brewing 25lt of the APA featured in your spreadsheet (NRB's All Amarillo American Pale Ale). It all seemed to come out OK, even if my mash was a few degrees hotter for the first 5 minutes or so. Hopefully nothing to stress about. But anyway, my question. T...

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

My names Jube from Hungary...have brewed a few long days of 3 vessel brewing. E.g. last week brewed 70 litres starting in morning and finished at midnight. Looking to biab to shorten times and prove to my friend that it is also possible to brew a perfectly drinkable beer without spending half the ni...
