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

Welcome FlippedOut. :salute: With your time/family constraints, I'd suggest Fresh Wort Kits (FWK's). They are extremely good value and all you have to do is pitch the yeast and then let it ferment. In contrast, if you all-grain (BIAB is an all-grain method) you'll need a day to get it to the same st...

Re: IPA Brewers - What are your opinions with hop additions for IPAs?

mally (send me an email or something to let me know if this "mention system is actually working ;) ) That is a very interesting post. I hope you, Scott or someone else will dig into it and provide a summary. I find this fascinating... it would be a very difficult experiment to devise but maybe ther...

Re: IPA Brewers - What are your opinions with hop additions for IPAs?

Lol on Mrs Scott's comment :lol: The other thoughts I had on this whole issue were... 1. With some hops, the same variety can change significantly in bitterness, flavour and aroma from one year to the next. They can even change wildly from farm to farm in the same country in the same year. 2. On top...

hhn68 Hi there Hugh :peace: NZ, the home of some beautiful hops! Looks like you have tremendous patience to leave those meads for 8 years :o With "tiny" batches, these can sometimes get so small that they can become a bit tricky. Let's say a "normal" batch gives you 25 x 750ml bottles (19 L or abou...

Re: IPA Brewers - your opinions on hop additions please...

Wow, there are some hops in that recipe Scott. This is a great question. I've been confused on this for five years, probably longer? (I'm going to come back to streamer's quote shortly.) Scott, you mention and describe so well, "super bitter straight pine IPAs." A lot of my brewer friends like them...

sneakybrewz : Welcome to the board. I hope in the future we'll see some pics of you happily brewing on an ice lake. BobBrews has posted a few good ones :) Abay2887 : Atm, It's a bit hard to find answers easily here on what you need so, until the site finishes "re-building," don't wast too much time...

Re: First biab attempt

Hi there El and welcome to the forum :salute: Firstly, I'd like to say, nice job on filling out the BIABacus :thumbs: Quick Notes On BIABAcus... Error (Not Yours!): In Section F, the WYWU field has an incorrect formula. You'll actually only want to use about a 1/4 of a whirfloc tablet. Saving Proble...

Re: is FG Correct

I just put a plastic bag loosely over the lot but I've wanted something a bit more elegant...
Next time I might cut the finger off a disposable glove. Only issue with that would be that it might blow off but a pin prick in it would fix that though :drink:

Welcome aboard Siman :salute:

Always great to see a new member from my birth town and great to see you found the site. The site has a lot of great info but the info is quite buried atm so just ask any questions you have and someone is sure to save you from digging.

Enjoy the career break :)

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

Welcome Am, thanks for your first post and congratulations on your first BIAB :clap:, You've found the right place for BIAB! While the site is not very "good-looking" atm, the pioneers of BIAB started this site and other members have greatly helped in coming up with even more discoveries. Informatio...

Re: First BIAB attempt

Good on you abi and congrats on your maiden voyage :champ: I think you will have a good beer, it will just be a bit lower in alcohol than you expected (say 3.9% versus 4.5%). This is no problem at all. Here's a few general notes for you... Measuring - A stainless steel ruler makes measuring wort vol...

Re: 0 Minutes

I'll have to honest with you, every time I see o minutes I put the hops in at 20 minutes and at flame out I remove the hop sock... If you do that Philip, you'll be losing aroma etc. Have a read of this thread Chilling Myths - Asking the Right Questions . That will help you understand things a littl...

Re: is FG Correct

That should be fine Phillip however your plan to take a second reading is sensible (I'll give you another tip on this at the end of this post) because: 1. Hydrometers can be inaccurate (as can refractometers) 2. Samples can sometimes not reflect the gravity of the fermenter 3. Final gravity estimate...

Re: Disaster

Philip and anyone who is re-using yeast, two things...

1. Always smell the yeast before you pitch it.
2. Always taste it before you pitch it.

If there is something wrong, in my experience, one or both of those tests will reveal it.
