Thank you for the response, Shore Points. I will check gravity in the morning. Long day at work just ended. if it is where I want it I may bottle tomorrow. I took a reading a few days ago, and it was around 1.017, which is right on. I tasted the runoff from the thief. Dryer than expected. Maybe beca...

Hello all. Status report on this stout: Brewing went mostly fine. I did a 90 minute mash, with the specialty grains steeped for the first 30 minutes, as per Palmer's NEW revised version. Mash out to 173. I had 2 thermometers that registered differently by 6 to 8 degrees, so I was nervous about that....
Ah, the time zero addition. That's just me not deleting the entry from the previous beer; i didn't start with a clear spreadsheet but re-used a previous one. I don't know how to download an empty one. I don't know where to get the EBC and SRM values for the grains, so I did not enter them. My neighb...
Hello. I have entered information int a BIABacus spreadsheet for another brew, a Stout this time. If anyone would like to look it over and give me feedback I would appreciate it. I still am confused why using a hopsock would reduce the grain bill, but will follow the numbers on the spreadsheet at an...

Overall more chaotic than I had planned on due to the paper bag of malt ripping and the very hot day, but we got a decent beer out of it. Following the BIABacus recommendatio...
Thank you for replying. I did run this through the Biababacus, and was surprised that it suggested reducing the size of the grain bill, and increasing the hops addition (when I entered desired IBU as 40), but admittedly it was my first use of the Biababacus. I'll go over it again and post the result...
Hello. This is my second post, so please bear with me. I've done 5 BIAB batches, but not for a couple of years so I'm relearning. Plus I am trying to delve into everything more deeply to get a fuller understanding rather than just following steps. I have a formula from Brewing Classic Styles that I ...
Hi all. I live in Charlottesville, Virginia. Many craft breweries AND home brewers here. I have brewed 5 batches so far, 1 bad one with expired extract, 3 good BIAB and one not so good BIAB. I went straight from extract to BIAB on recommendation of my son, who was working at a homebrew shop at the t...
