Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

Hi Pat, This is great stuff... It is awesome to read a post with so much thought put into it!!! :thumbs: I had questions as well on when using sugar (I’ve done this one time in my 55 BIAB batches), what changes if any does one make with the BIABacus file? I see you left his file adjustment with a ch...

Hello gdp66 , and welcome to the forum! I always would recommend going a little larger than you plan to brew. Can always scale it back but cannot scale it larger without new equipment.

Re: German Rauchbier Recipe

Awesome Greg! Nice to hear. Let me know how it turns out. A couple guys at my homebrew group thought it good but slightly harsh... Not my opinion, theirs. Kind of like a person having their first IPA, but this is not “over the top” at all, in my opinion. If brewing “for the masses”, perhaps I would ...

Hello Steve Kaplan ! Thank you for your post and welcome to the forum! If you like beer and like to drink beer, I would recommend skipping the mini-batches and go with at least 5-gallon batches.

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Well lager fermentation can be up to 21 days. Seems like mine is done normally 14 days or so. Could be a couple days longer sometimes... Just make certain fermentation is 100% complete before beginning cold crash. A few days extra never hurts anything...but if fermentation is not complete it causes ...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Yes, it's there now. First off - good job on filling out the BIABacus! :thumbs: I do not see any problems with how you filled it out, provided that you correctly put in the dimensions of your existing boil pot, and I'm sure you did. Good job! Helles is a really nice style, very easy to drink. I've g...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

cuthburtb , The input on the left side of the screen shows recipe inputs for a recipe of a given size. Hopefully all that is correct. The What You Will Use to the right of that modifies the recipe for your system, and depending on your batch size will alter the inputs needed. When I was brewing a s...
