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

If you love the beer, can find out what sort of flavor hops are used and purchase some... Always can change hops. There are many good ones. The BIABacus file that ShorePoints recommended to you is really a phenomenal tool to help you with brewing and figuring out exactly how much to use, etc. If que...

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...

Re: MS and hurricane Michael

Hello @jhough... Sorry to hear your wife has been in the hospital! That’s a sad situation. Wondered where you had been.

How is MS...? Sounds like a bunch of folks up there are also in need of a bunch of prayers! The news video looks horrible, but sometimes certain areas are better than others.

Re: New Gear Acquisitions and their impact on your brew

That sounds like an excellent piece of equipment to add, especially with living in Florida! :thumbs: I have one where I live in Oregon and it enables me to brew lagers at cold fermentation temperature in summer. I have a large rubber band that fits around my fermentation and a small piece of bubble ...

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

Dreadpiratewes - think I forgot to mention, I don’t really “lager” my lagers besides trying to let them stay at serving temperatures for up to a month or so. But not always. If I am out of German Pils, it may get tapped and start getting poured within a few days. If you have space for it, some say ...

German Rauchbier Recipe

Has anyone else ever had German Rauchbier and discovered they love it? Schlenkerla has an awesome Maerzen Rauchbier, and we can get it in bottles here in the USA. It's very good stuff...! My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in late June of this year, and celebrated by going to Euro...

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

Hi Wes, Good job filling out the BIABacus and giving it a shot! I think a lot of things will come out at you after you do. And there are lots of terminologies and whatnot listed. Clear Brewing Terminology (CBT), there is a post on the forum in the beginner's section and I recommend reviewing. It was...

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

Welcome to the forum, Dreadpiratewes, Let us know what questions you have, moving forward. Best time to ask the question is before you buy your setup, so sounds like you are good there. Is the goal to stay with mini-BIAB or just interim step until you get set up like you want? I have a 16-gallon sta...

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

Welcome to the site Expat. The BIABacus is especially helpful when doing a BIAB batch of beer. You will run into terminology that may be confusing so also will want to review the terminology explanation thread. Both of these, along with some other great info is in the BIAB for new brewers section. L...

Re: Grapefruit Pale Ale

JayP - I would be just guessing, but maybe pull hops out before you put in your no-chill container...? :scratch: Think you already came to that conclusion. (EDIT - below adds more to PistolPatch’s Hop conversation...) On hop testing and research, yes [mention]PistolPatch[/mention] has much of it rig...
