Re: Scaling a recipe using BIABacus

I just re-read this and may have a couple thoughts to add to ShorePoints advice. I frequently use FWH and put it into the BIABacus as a 90-min hop addition. That’s how I do it... And actually for me, with a 90-min boil they are actually in the wort for at least 110 minutes or so... No I’ll effects. ...

Re: Scaling a recipe using BIABacus

We normally recommend the 90-minute boil, for certain reasons... But I do not see it as a “hard and fast” rule. In this case, I might dissent and cut it back to 1-hour like Brewnoob was first thinking so he can finish with a larger volume. And if concerned about having Wort stabilized before adding ...

Re: First BIAB Attempt with Pics - Oh no! My chiller leaked into the wort!

Hello PistolPatch and ShorePoints , I have never done a parallel fermentation in the hydrometer cup. You must vigorously shake the container with wort and yeast to make sure it is all thoroughly mixed... :think: Guess my concern is - will the fermentation’s truly be identical with different vessels,...

Hello biabolo , Welcome to the forum, from another guy that used to brew and took...about 16 years off. My previous brewing was all extract and was decent but not great. Coming back to brewing much older I started again with extract and it was better but I wanted better yet...and wanted Pilsners to ...

Hello Mike, Welcome to the site! I have not brewed with a keggle, and have never used a brew basket. My son uses a brew basket, as do others...so certainly it works. No idea on if it works as well as the bag that most of us use. His gets much more sediment than I do. Many folks use a keggle. I have ...

Re: Brulosophy Vienna Lager

Hello shetc , I saw your post a few days ago but forgot to review in detail or respond... PistolPatch would be the best deciphering which recipe has integrity and which does not. Or perhaps ShorePoints or one of the other experienced brewers on here may have additional input. I think most recipes ha...

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

Welcome to the forum Cam . You came to the right place. You should see some links to the BIABacus file a few posts up, along with one to the Clear Brewing Terminology page as well. I have scaled many a brew from the BCS book and you will have no problem doing this as well. Let us know if anything is...

Re: Year old Yeast

Nice to hear it worked out for you.

Probably would say, you can sometimes make year old yeast work...in a pinch, if cannot get new yeast. And yes with multiple step starters. But probably not the best practice if a homebrewer can get fresh yeast.

Good job! Thanks for letting us know. :thumbs:

Re: Year old Yeast

You can only go as fast as the yeast will let you. A learning process, which is good for us all... Let us know how it goes as it can help others too.

Re: Year old Yeast

Can you get replacement yeast elsewhere? This would be best. It is possible but will take some time to get this yeast built up to where it should be. I would add a week and at least a second starter and brew it next weekend... If you brew and pitch this weekend anyhow, realize fermentation will take...
