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...

Thanks a lot for having a look at my BIABacus. Looking forward to your reply. Welcome aboard maze :salute: Thanks for pointing ou...

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: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

[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...

Re: Grapefruit Pale Ale

Post is in the perfect spot James ;) . (Saw your post in the other thread. Sorry to see that batch ditched but hopefully the Berliner will be excellent.) Very long day today (and the same goes for pretty much the next seven days) but let's see if I can go through your recipe plan while my brain has ...

Re: Yeast Starter / Starter Wort from Previous Rauchbier Brew

Thanks for the reads above. (Lol on the bonsai :) ) There's a difference between pitching onto a yeast cake, harvesting a yeast cake, washing and rinsing. Harvesting a yeast cake and rinsing it is very easy. I mentioned above, the problem in writing how to do it is in the definitions. I'm very stuck...

Re: The quest for a new setup

Hi there Tom, I thought I'd replied in this thread earlier but see that I missed it. In a rush but here's a few quick notes... - No mill is over-kill for BIAB. Whether you're crushing 5 kg or 10 tons of grain, you are crushing grain and you want to do it correctly. And, it makes no difference whethe...

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

[mention]PrivateWiddle[/mention]: Welcome aboard Liam. My mother's side of the family came from Cork to Ozland but it was about 200 years ago so you may not know them :). Small batches can be trickier in some ways and easier in others. The scaling is easy with the BIABacus (looks scary but it's not ...

Re: Yeast Starter / Starter Wort from Previous Rauchbier Brew

Hey there Scott :peace: I read your post this morning before heading out to earn some dollars, (it's Sunday here too!) and loved it. Here's why... In my last post in this thread (written at 9:30am), I wrote, "I'll write a new thread on Yeast Slurry Harvesting," thinking that it would take me two or ...

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

Hi [mention]Pinchons[/mention] , My internet keeps going on strike :) but enjoyed reading your post the other day on my phone especially the, "amount of beers drunk during the process and other factors that I'm not going to mention..." comment. It's always amazing how at the beginning of a brew day,...

Re: Yeast Starter / Starter Wort from Previous Rauchbier Brew

Hope your trip was amazing and great to have you back :thumbs: Great to see you identified the problem :peace: . Unfortunately, that method is only really going to work if you were either using a very plain grain bill or intended to make the same recipe. The other problems include how you store the ...
