So I bottled this last night. So far the result has been excellent! Apart from the colour I've almost recreated the local brew here. When I bottled it, all I could think of was being at the football! Anyway, the FG ended up 2 points below the initial estimate (FG 1.009). Which, given all the strange...

Are you able to Cold Crash? I have a separate freezer on temperature controller where I can take it down to 32 deg F / 0 deg C for a couple days. Hmm... this is something I haven't given a moment's consideration to at all. I don't have a separate freezer, but being that my batches are in 1 gallon l...
Well, I did this brew on the weekend. Both my first attempt and this brew seem to have significant volumes of kettle trub. I after seeing this in the first brew and I made some attempt to reduce it using whirlpools and holding back more wort in the kettle. But seems to have not made a difference. In...
Thanks for the reply Scott. Did you have a vigorous boil...? Kind of. I think my stove-top must have some kind of protection in it to stop it going at maximum power all the time. The water boils, but I wouldn't call it vigorous. I've got a propane cylinder that I use for a gas Weber BBQ and I'm wond...
Below is the BIABacus output for what I'm thinking of doing next. I'll try and outline the background and thought processes. I currently have 3 brews at different stages: * A WilliamsWarn English Pale Ale extract kit that's fully matured (23L batch) * An experimental 4L batch which was a full boil D...
Wow. Thanks for the info. I should probably read the whole thread before commenting. I must admit that section Y confuses me at the moment. I don't quite understand how FGDB and MC relate to adjuncts. But I will go back and read some stuff to see if I can figure it out. A couple of other things that...
If you were designing a recipe , best practice is to decide the OG you want (top of Section C) and then the percentage of malts (Section C left hand fields). If you do this, the weights of each malt you need to use is shown on the right of Section C. Ahh.. ok. I think I get it now and why the colum...
I have a few questions: 1. Is the PR1.3T still the latest version? 2. Is this capable of estimating an OG from the grain bill? 3. In part F, I don't understand how it comes to the value in "WYWU" column. If I set the original recipe VAW equal to the VIF then it doesn't give me the original quantity....
Hi everyone, I'm a long time on and off extract brewer. I remember doing my first brews whilst watching the 2003 cricket world cup, so it's been quite a while. As per most Australians (Brisbane, specifically at the moment), I thought K-Mart was the place to get your home-brew supplies and did kit&ki...
