Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

Hi AdeDunn, Question for you... You mentioned better results @ 75 minutes of super hard boil vs. 90 minutes roiling boil (so higher temperature???). How so? In what way was the result better? :scratch: Also, FYI the BIABacus always defaults to getting higher OG than planned. It's easy to fix this be...

Re: General Discussion on Site Quality of Commercial Malt, Hop and Yeast Suplies

Hi Pat, just noticed your post from last week... On yeast, the two yeasts that I normally use are 1) Wyeast Labs, and sometimes 2) White labs. Lately I’ve been channeled into 3) Imperial Yeast from Portland (claim to fame more yeast cells for the price). All are liquid yeasts from here in the USA. I...

Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

Hello AdeDunn, Can’t taste a picture, but your brews certainly look tasty...! :P :drink: ;) My preferred brew setup is a more simple full volume BIAB, as I feel that I have enough complexities in life and don’t want to complicate it more necessary to make great beer. But that said, more complicated ...

Interesting🤔🤔🤔 I can’t help you with the water guesstimate. The Brew N Water one is likely good choice, at least by reputation. Haven’t done much of that myself and likely should do more. Plan to with my next pale ale. Very soft water where I live in the Willamette Valley in Western Oregon. Like Pil...

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

Hi AJ, and welcome to the forum! Sounds like you’ve jumped in with both feet. I remember all the info that a guy would get. So much and everyone seemed to have different advice. When I started many were still saying traditional full volume BIAB was crap, poor efficiency, etc. After much research I t...

Coiled around a Cornelius keg, added some hose with clamps, and fittings at one End to connect to garden hose. There are many plans available online. L...
