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

maze42 - your BIABacus file looks great! I concur with your whirlpool hops addition description entry in Section I where you specify adding hops below 77 ºC. The rate of isomerization of humulones to bitterness is temperature related. Once below 77 ºC, the rate is negligible (no IBUs added) while th...

Welcome, Dufflebum. Cowboy or Boomer Sooner? (that's a peculiar Oklahoma thing). If just starting out gathering your brewing equipment, choose a kettle that will still work for you next year. That is, a 10 gallon (~30 Liter) stainless kettle with or without a thick bottom can be used to brew most 5 ...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

:peace: cuthburtb - tizoc - Volume loss from lauter is in Section X as you have pointed out. It does not adjust grain weights when one enters different numbers, but it does adjust water volumes in Section K. This leaves your purchased / weighed out grains as you entered them and TWN is increased to ...

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...

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, ...
