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

Hallo, Jeremy. Welcome to the forum and thanks for the great post. BIAB will work for you to make beer. You have the background to ensure success. :luck: Do not crush your grains too finely, you want to break them open but not turn them into flour. Ask questions when you have them and someone will b...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

Cuthburtb - The recipe you entered in the left column could be the list of grain & hops weights from a source that brewed on a very different scale to what your kettle may permit. Also, the grains values might be entered as numbers reflecting percentages of the total grist (do not enter the % signs,...

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

Welcome, geezer. You can brew beer simply or succumb to the shiny and expensive. If you go the no chill route, just make sure that sanitizing is thorough. I have visited other brewers’ chilling step and saw a lot of water running down the driveway. Collecting the waste water for the garden is anothe...

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

Greetings, Trenton, lxl and 308win! Trenton - The consistent advice here is to use a 90 minute mash. You can do less, but you won't get as much out of the grist. 90 minute boil, too. ;) lxl - You are on the right track, keep going. Ask questions when you have them, you will get answers. :thumbs: 308...

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

Welcome to the forum, Tobynz. With a 30 liter kettle you can make 20 L batches (VIP) using BIAB and do it without sparging. The BIABacus spreadsheet can scale batches for you and keep track of IBUs, too. Of course you can make your IPA more expensive to brew by boosting the hop flavors to extremes, ...

Welcome, swebb. You have come to the right place. Look around and ask questions. Do check the Clear Brewing Terminology page and try out the BIABacus.
Good choice for a first brew - visualise your steps before you begin, use a timer and take notes. It will result in a good beer. :drink:

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

Welcome, Brendancavan and Clayton. Brendancavan - There are lots of folks who set up automated eBIAB systems. You may even find some on this forum who have modified hybrids like yours. Have a look around in the eBIAB threads and ask questions. Clayton - Yes, a 35 L kettle can make ~ 23 L of wort goi...

BIABacus PR1.3U - Blank Style - Blank Name - Batch A0.xls (401.5 KiB) Downloaded 83 times I got that link from https://biabrewer.info/viewforum.php?f=25 below the second dark bar across the page.

Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

BMWFan - I guess you can tell that I missed the SRM difference in the two different Chocolate malts because I failed to pay attention to color. :blush: The recipe has unusual elements; High mash temperature, >13% flaked grains, >11% black/chocolate grains and one dose of Willamette hops at 60 minute...

Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

BMWFan - All told, good job on filling out the BIABacus. :thumbs: You must expect to get different numbers when using different programs because the assumptions made are inherently different. I am biased toward the BIABacus. Your equipment is much more complicated than mine so I cannot offer an esti...

Re: Yeast Starter / Starter Wort from Previous Rauchbier Brew

Thank you, Scott. That seems to be the best answer involving flavor leftovers for this thread. Storage of that remaining starter under wort/beer or washed is another choice discussed at that link. When preparing for the next brew, make another large starter and subdivide again. Repeat as desired. 12...

Re: Yeast Starter / Starter Wort from Previous Rauchbier Brew

Scott My science experience was in a chemistry lab, not biology. Yeast is alive, so it is different. :sneak: However, before I started home brewing I took up baking bread. Sourdough became my interest and that’s yeast. I learned how to start a starter from a humorous book “52 Loaves” by William Alex...

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

Greetings to Andrew from the U.S. and wyldstalyans from Melbourne and Geoffers1 from Dorset. Geoffers1 - I hope to have a trouble-free brew every time, but rarely get there. The variables are huge and the human factor (me) keeps getting in the way. At least the BIABacus helps keep things in line. Ge...
