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

Welcome mkrist. I guess a pharmacist could look at the brewing process like compounding a dosage form. After all, beer is good for your health (mostly). ;) There is a lot of knowledge on this site, but you will have to spend time looking for some of the subjects. Read the threads that interest you (...

Welcome to the forum, CxRxExAxM. Kitchen experience will serve you well in brewing. After starting with good ingredients, it is all about time & temperature. Please ask questions when you have them. I just visited Arizona - Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Antelope Valley slot canyon near Page, then Fla...

A warm welcome to the forum, Bob. I found Huron Park centrally isolated midway between Detroit & Toronto. No wonder beer costs a lot. BIAB can produce 5 gallons (19.8 L) at less than $2 USD per 12 oz (350 mL) bottle, including shipping of raw materials, and it is far better than the cheap stuff you ...

Hello, tmac. Asheville, North Carolina has attracted many breweries because the water there is so good. I will visit again next year. You are fortunate to have good starting material available, so you are on your way to making great beers. What holds up your pulley system? I brew under a wooden deck...

Welcome back and belated greetings to tacticalspud. I’m sorry that I skipped over your nice post :idiot: I like your thinking about naming a batch “Night Shift.” I made an Old Ale that was bland at the end of fermentation, so I added some stone fruit and gave it some more time before bottling. Name?...

Welcome, Big Fat Sack. Nice first post :clap: A 10 gallon kettle is good. Beware of the temptation to apply you work skills to your equipment - simple is good, too. Read up on kettle valves and then decide https://www.biabrewer.info/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3668&p=54429&hilit=ball+valve#p54429 and https...

Hello, Phil. Brewing + retirement is a great combination. Your experience will help get to good beer sooner than others just starting out. I have read that today’s malts are highly modified and that means that the step mashes of last century are no longer necessary. Give your old bucket a good washi...

Welcome to the forum ComptonEffect. I think it's great to have another experimentalist on board (I'm a retired organic chemistry process research guy who also bakes bread). With your world of beer-tasting experience and kitchen skills you can soon make beers you like with BIAB. Start with good ingre...

Welcome to the forum, wdorrepaal / William. Thanks for the informative first post. You started at a high level of automation and complexity. Now you can use BIAB to get a feel for what is controllable and what to just let happen and later incorporate that into your more automated brewing. A hybrid s...

Hello, Beerbaron. Have a look around the forum and after that ask questions. Please read Clear Brewing Terminology http://www.biabrewer.info/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2685 so we can talk the same language and try out the BIABacus spreadsheet http://www.biabrewer.info/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1869.

Re: Where are the bookmarks kept?

I may have found it! Click on your (logged in) user ID in the upper right between the magnifying glass & the hamburger, select User Control Panel from the drop-down list. That opens a new panel on the left where (under Overview) the third item is Manage Bookmarks. Your bookmarks then show and you ca...
