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...

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

One thing I do know about this site is many hours and dollars are poured into it by a few silly members such as myself :). This is not a commercial site so we have no income or profit. That's beside the point though on this particular topic. What concerns me is... I'm at a total loss at why some com...

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

Sarah can now join us on Sunday as can sinkas Lost a lot of time this week* on some emergency call-outs. Finally had a few hours today to digest feedback from lukasfab , Sarah and sinkas plus do some study on what is going to be a very expensive beer! Today I also had some time to re-write a more r...

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...

Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

[NOTE: This is a very advanced topic.] I've wanted, for a long time, to write a procedure for using the BIABacus to partigyle. One main problem is that I generally do not brew high gravity beers ( Sarah Sarah has forced me several times) and the grain bill on those done has not lent itself to being...

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. For example in your post above, we know you had 1 litre of nasty trub (Kettle to Fermenter Loss) but we d...

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....
