Re: Increase heating power

Hi there Angelo, Sorry about the slow reply. Oops! You can leave the lid on to get to boiling point faster. You mention that your lid has a 10 cm hole in it. If so, then you could leave the lid on during the boil as that is enough of an opening to allow volatiles to escape but, I would also float a ...

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

BMWFan : Read the bit below about "The Average Yield the BIABacus Uses," as this will be a part of my answer to one of your questions. I was expecting to answer your questions tonight and get your BIABacus finalised but some bits below took ages to write and I've now run out of steam sorry. (I stil...

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

So much for the 24 hours :smoke: . So sorry (and embarrassed) to make you wait so long Scott. [Also Scott, I've written the below for other readers. Most of the below you already know very well. At the end though, I come back to you. For other readers, take your time with this. This is not an easy r...

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

Hey there Scott :peace: , In my last post I said I'd reply more frequently. Unfortunately, just after that, my van blew up so now I have to find and pay for a new engine. I think I need a "Go Fund Me," page :) Thanks Scott for your comment on the thought bit. I truly appreciate that as the thought d...

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

Answer - Part 1* Thanks for you outstanding patience BMWFan . Nothing worse than having to wait days and days for an answer (sorry about that). I've just finished a big job so I should be more reliable from now on. Mind you, I might need some practice as I was half-way through writing my answer to ...

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

This is a very hard question to answer Scott and a very good one to ask. I started replying shortly after you wrote your question, had just finalised my reply, hit Enter and I was logged out and lost all I had written :) Here is what I remember writing... "I actually started writing an answer to you...

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

Thanks for the link and pics BMW - much appreciated :salute: . I hadn't seen the condenser before. We'd probably get in trouble using one here due to water restrictions :think: . Enjoyed reading the link. Shame the waste water can't be used for cleaning. That would be perfect! I should have mentione...

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

I've been meaning to write a few things to this thread for ages and I have a question too! Firstly... This beer turned out FANTASTIC. Awesome! Great to read that :salute: [BIABacus] boil-off rates. I'd like to change it because it's calculating way too high for me. I use a Boil/Steam condenser, whic...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

Thanks a heap Scott . (I owe you and some others*) In the meantime, I have to deal with the likes of tizoc :lol: What tizoc describes is a definite error I've written a PM to tizoc re this and some other stuff such as some of the complexities involved in coding the BIABacus. In that PM, I've explain...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

Thanks ShorePoints for the welcome back. Re-reading my post above, I think I may need more time to start talking sense :). And I know Scott has been doing his usual excellent work and that the old faithfuls are still posting (e.g. mally when they haven't been hit by cyclones (e.g. Mad_Scientist ) et...

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

Welcome aboard Jkroland , We can get kettle size etc sorted in two seconds* but before that, you mentioned, "twang." "Twang," caused me to stop brewing many times in the past and I was about to give up again about 12 years ago until someone sent me a PM explaining my problem was "extract twang." It ...

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

[mention]elbowbend[/mention] : Hey there Lylo! Great to see you are still brewing :thumbs:. The altruistic goals of the site (to discover, create or pass on quality brewing info) remain intact since you last visited however the, "Goliath's of IT," really slow things down. Basically all we need is fo...

Re: Grapefruit Pale Ale

Hi James and apologies for such a delayed reply. This is my first day off in many weeks and the rest of this week is booked out. It will be a nice break though to write the below... Scott's comment seems to have been missed but we'll come back to that. It's not correct that with "no-chill," a 30 min...
