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

Welcome! Deaconjanuary - Things in home brewing keep changing. Read lots of stuff on this forum for solid information, especially about BIAB. This is where it is done, not just talked about. Hello, Corne. We enjoyed some great beers in Amsterdam and Haarlem not too long ago. When you start to buy eq...

Welcome, vk7tpg. That’s a lot of years brewing.The transition to AG will not be difficult for you. Read lots on this forum and ask questions, someone will get back to you. And Greetings to Mike, mgiedrys. I’’d say that 2 tbsp of fresh orange zest would be plenty if you are brewing 5 gallons. A saiso...

Re: Help adjusting BiaBacus to assist low EAW - Efficiency of Ambient Wort

I cannot think of a reason for excess reducing agent in the form of Campden tablets to impact volumes as described by Nick. From Wikipedia.org on Campden tablet: Typical use is one crushed Campden tablet per US gallon (3.8 L) of must or wort ….. However, when used only for the purpose of dechlorinat...

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

Welcome gonzo^^ Physics and beer go well together. If time is not very important, 2h for chilling will work fine. Some BIAB brewers do what is called no-chill and just let the hot wort cool to ambient Temp by itself without actively chilling. Greetings Palmettoflyer - Charleston, South Carolina is b...

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

SamEyes - go for it. Post your BIABacus file and see what happens. :salute: Even though things have been slow around here with only Scott & I replying to a number of recent posts, I am sure there must be others who will give your file a look. (If that doesn't stir up a hornets' nest, I don't know wh...

Welcome to the forum, Deaconbrew. Do let us know how it goes when you get to brewing. And Greetings to creidy, too. Once you have a go at the BIABacus, grain amounts will start to make sense. You can post your BIABacus file for comments or if you have specific questions. There is also a good deal of...

There is a forum section on electric brewing if you haven't already found it. smertin - your unbridled enthusiasm is awesome. If your golden ale recipe in both plans agrees ...

Re: Recipe review requested

Tomas, I'll give some ideas regarding your questions - but they might not be the best answers. 1) Based on what they say is a 5.5 gal. batch, how do they achieve the 1.070 OG based on the original grain bill? They said it was a 5.5 gal. batch - does that mean into packaging (VIP), or into fermenter ...

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

Hello, Whitew / Will and GVIII.
Have a look around the various topics on the forum and ask questions before you brew. A lengthy brew day plus fermentation and resting time can save you an hour of reading... Just kidding. Clear Brewing Terminology and the BIABacus are recommended subjects.

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

Welcome frenchie_d I've been doing this for a while and concur wholeheartedly with your post, "Every brew is a new experience for learning and having fun, and every time I learn something new, hence joining this forum to delve well and truly down the rabbit hole to improve my batches."

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

Greetings, mdrewicz. Yes, you have found a great resource for learning and sharing. Take advantage of it by reading and asking questions. If you are based between the U.K. and France, where might that be, other than in the English Channel? :whistle: Hello, Kevin / Chorgey - a kit might include start...

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

Greetings, Batchelot from Denmark, Australia. That made me think of the state of Maine in the U.S. where there are towns named Mexico, Peru and Norway. I’m with you, praising the founders of BIABrewer and the work they have done. That all occurred before I joined the community. I have learned a grea...

And kudos to you for understanding that waiting for beer is a necessary part of the process. HBC - Hello, Dennis from ...

Re: Help adjusting BiaBacus to assist low EAW - Efficiency of Ambient Wort

Nick, Stirring once midway during a 90 minute mash is good. I also check the temperature at that time and apply heat if down more than 1 ºC from target mash temp. thughes mentions mash-out time here https://www.biabrewer.info/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3625&p=53581&hilit=mash+time#p53581 I agree with his ...

Re: Help adjusting BiaBacus to assist low EAW - Efficiency of Ambient Wort

Nick, You have already looked at the crush of the grains, so double check the weight of grains, too. I think you should extend your mash time from 60 minutes (as shown in your attached files) to 90 minutes. Then a 90 minute boil will drive off more water to give you a higher OG. See https://www.biab...

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

It appears that we are a few welcomes behind. :sleep: :blush: Greetings to HankKingsley - don’t focus on the numbers, focus on the beer. I try to maximize the yield, too. Trub, as in kettle to fermenter loss (KFL), is not as terrible as it is made out to be. There is a happy medium between transferr...
