Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Sorry Pinchons . I got called out to a couple of urgent jobs that took ages and am in middle of moving computer so typing this on phone and I'll be stuck for another couple of days. Hopefully you have everything under control though. Don't worry abot starter, just pitch what you have :luck: :peace:

Welcome aboard Another Brian :salute: All-grain is much more forgiving than extract. That's great your son was in a home brew shop :peace: . There is a lot of quality on this site but it can be very hard to find under the current layout. Until the new layout happens, don't battlw with any perplexity...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Lol Pinx :lol: I hope my last post didn't throw too much info at you in one hit - it is hard info to take on. If you're happy to go with "dilution" config, we'll work with that. Note though, that you can change your mind on that config at any time and the BIABabacus will adjust everything accordingl...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

That's great Pinx - nice job :thumbs: Let's have a look and see what we find... The first thing is we see The BIABacus throwing up red warnings so we want to check those out first. The warnings are indicating that we're asking too much from a kettle of that size. We all know it would be impossible t...

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

PP, regarding needing multiple equipment profiles, not if you know how to use Beersmith 2 (and now 3) properly. In the desktop version you can adjust the "BH Efficiency" on the design few tab, you would however need to understand that you'd have to be doing this in the first place. Luckily for me i...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Hi again Pinchons, Once again, I'm headed for bed :). Before I do, a few things... You mention, "our recipe is not for BIAB." That doesn't matter at all. It's simply an all-grain recipe and any all-grain recipe needs "translation" unless the author of the recipe just happens to be sending it to anot...

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

Welcome derekzoolander , Demarispa and pegthebeast :peace: pegthebeast : There is a lot of excellent info here but it can be very hard to find. A re-structure of the site and lots of writing is scheduled but until then just dive in and ask any questions you have. derekzoolander and Demarispa : I'm g...

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

Good stuff posting some numbers Ade :peace: . This helps give a clearer picture and I'll come to those in a minute. Before that though, a clarification on your clarification :lol: . In BeerSmith, "brewhouse efficiency" actually refers to Efficiency into Fermenter." I just downloaded BeerSmith 3 to c...

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

:) Pinchons The BIABacus is frightening to look at when you first see it. The reason for that is because pretty much everything any type of brewer could need is on a single sheet. This was done for educational purposes. Ideally, we'd like the BIABacus user interface to be totally flexible so the use...

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

Ade, thanks again for keeping us posted. I know this site has a button planned so as you will be able to give a post a thumbs up (like) however it still needs some work. If it was working, I'm sure you'd find yourself with plenty of thumbs up. I've been short on time lately and so have only been abl...

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

Pinchons : Great to have another member from Europe, thanks for your Valencia oranges :) and congratulations on the brews you've done so far :thumbs: . Also read my last sentences below... kilo_folio : :P Keelan and welcome aboard. No shame in kit beers. Two of the most outstanding beers I've ever ...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Brew Update Transferred both these beers to secondary on Thursday for their last hop addition. Then crash-chilled to -1.5 °C. Should get a chance to keg them on Tues or Wed although they could be done now; you can see the trub has settled out already. Some numbers for you. (High gravity beer / part...

Re: General Discussion on Site Quality of Commercial Malt, Hop and Yeast Suplies

Sorry for the slow reply mate. Only just finished mopping the floor from our brew day - lol HPA, the link you gave above, do a great job. I think it's the only hop site I've seen where on some of the hops, they describe different outcomes from the hop depending on when/how you use it. That sort of i...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Well, seeing as I was, "up at cyclists," I thought I'd do dome study. [I used to use the term, "up at sparrows," which is when you wake with the birds merrilly singing. Being up at cyclists is when you wake with the aggressive screaming of a plague of passing sporting cyclists. In my street, being u...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

:) Bob. The denaturing thing has always had me stumped when you consider decoction mashing. I mean how does that work? In a decoction mash, a form of step-mashing, you are scooping out thick parts from the mash, bringing that "stiff portion of grist/water) to the boil in a second vessel and then ret...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Please remember, you can never draw conclusions from a single brew. Despite the mess and disasters mentioned in the post above, it's nice to see that the "sugar points" pre and post-boil match. This double-check on measurements and their matching gives us confidence that there probably weren't any e...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

No need to bother reading this post unless you want a laugh and to get confused :) The post following this will give a summary. Just recovering from the 25 hour brew day :lol: . Had a week of being called out to emergency jobs (break-ins etc) so had very little sleep. All this meant that I managed ...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Was just tidying up numbers for tomorrow and on re-reading this thread noticed some errors. The result was right but I made a typo in my explanation. Fixed now. Hopefully there aren't too many more. Met Hamish, the brewer from Rocky Ridge (lovely bloke) last night so scored some tips. Today also rec...
