Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

That's the good thing about this build, PistolPatch, it all comes apart for cleaning. That is music to my ears Ade :party: :drink: It's really one of my biggest worries in brewing when I see a brewer embarking on a build with massive enthusiasm. I see their passion and want to encourage that most v...

Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

The joys of brewing Ade :) There is lots of fun in building an automated system however, it often ends up that the more parts we add, the more complications occur and our brew day becomes longer and sometimes harder. If there is a God, he/she seemed to have installed in brewer's brains, not only a l...

Re: Help adjusting BiaBacus to assist low EAW - Efficiency of Ambient Wort

Okay, things are becoming a bit clearer now. Here is what I assumed... - You had only done a few brews - The low "efficiency" was on every brew However, from your last post, I see now that... - You have done over 25 brews - There is no "theme" of being inefficient So, this is a very confusing thread...

Re: Help adjusting BiaBacus to assist low EAW - Efficiency of Ambient Wort

Thanks for the update Nick, Okay, there is something definitely going wrong here and it's going to be something obvious in hindsight. I'll come back to that. A Few Notes First - Still seeing 60 mins in your mash time. Increase that to 90. - Too much whirfloc and too early. Use 5 minutes before boil ...

Re: Help adjusting BiaBacus to assist low EAW - Efficiency of Ambient Wort

Hey Nick, I've been wondering how you've been getting along with this? I should have mentioned earlier, always post your file up with your actuals as then it makes things much easier to analyse.

SamEyes ShorePoints Scott (Normally I answer a lot of questions here but I've been unable to lately. What I can say, is that it has been an absolute pleasure today to read through SP's and Scott's answers on the forum. Trust their advice so....) As SP said, SamEyes, post your file up :thumbs:

Re: Recipe review requested

Firstly, thanks to ShorePoints , who with one or two others has been keeping things afloat while the rest of us are slacking off :salute: . And, SP's answers are always top quality.

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

Welcome Adrian :peace: There is a lot of info here however it is very buried at the moment so don't hesitate to start new threads with your questions.

Re: Location for Ball Valve & a Mushroom Discussion

Hi Jube, Apologies for the lack of replies. At this point in time, don't worry about starting a new thread with any question you have. One thing I'll ask is if you checked the link I made in about the third post of this thread. It's really important that you understand the problems with ball-valves....

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

Welcome Okiedust :salute: You've done very well to wade through all the essentials and notices. The site is very messy atm, so, it currently is a bit like digging for buried treasures :smoke: Until the site gets re-structured, just start a new topic and ask any questions you have. That's pretty cool...

Re: Help adjusting BiaBacus to assist low EAW - Efficiency of Ambient Wort

ShorePoints : Thanks for digging up the links ;). I've just added a thirteenth point to Some Common Reasons for a Low Efficiency Reading . This refers to a crush being too fine or too coarse. Inconceivable : Hey there Nick! (Thanks for your email btw ;) ) This is a great question and, I hope you do...
