Re: My first brew ever - a mini-BIAB All Amarillo APA

Hello Marko, Just noticed the additions to your post. Most often I get emails after updates, and sometimes not... Not - in this case. I used to have nicer SLR cameras, along with some basic ones, back in the 35mm days. Now with digital, I have a smaller size camera, bought a couple or three years ag...

Re: 2nd BIAB attempt

Sounds like the place you put your fermenter is quite good. The garbage can with water in it and fermenter inside that to moderate temp - if workable (and it may not be) would be better yet (consistent temp). But maybe you are so close and just 1-2 degree variation, may be fine... On mash - I heat t...

Re: 2nd BIAB attempt

Howdy Aplund, Great to hear that all signs point to a big improvement! Good job!!! :thumbs: You had some questions...sorry it's been a day already, and nobody has responded yet. Been pretty crazy here in the USA with the hurricane and whatnot. It's late and this won't be my best "work", but I'll tak...

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

Hello BMWFan, A few things to add to Streamer's comments... Yes, your first post has to be approved by a moderator, and depending on how available one is to have noticed it. I appreciate the additional info for sure! From Minnesota... Gets Cold there, for sure! That could be a benefit of having an e...

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

Richard & Steve, Welcome, both of you to the BIABrewer.info forum! :thumbs: There is an incredible amount of information on this forum, especially if you want to spend a little bit of time and look through some of the prior posts, along with answers from some of the BIAB pioneers (they post on this ...

Ajay and Bilder,

Welcome to the forum! For sure look around the site. We have tons of questions answered here and a guy can learn much by looking around the site.

Let us know if additional questions.

Re: My first brew ever - a mini-BIAB All Amarillo APA

Well did it finish? I normally leave ales in for 7-10 days; try leaving them in a day or two after I think they are done before checking gravity. Checking gravity - between OG and FG. When finished it would be FG (Final Gravity). ;) At the start is the OG - Original Gravity... Easy to get the terms ...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

Hello OldGoat, Very nice to hear you're still alive and kicking...! ;) Is that town up near Delonoga? (Mountain Phase of a particular army school I attended was there.) How is the water (for brewing)? Any good craft breweries (besides the one at your house)? :drink: For sure could see the difficulty...

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

Welcome to the forum, Aaron & Dr. Strahov... ;) Aaron - I am from Oregon as well... Hopefully your kit has all the things you need. It's not too difficult, but can be best to ask questions before. Oh well, it will make beer and I think you will like it, so "no worries"... I started with extract, the...

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

Hello Jefraz2003, and welcome to the forum! I don't have your issue but can certainly understand... Others that post here, for one reason or another, like to brew but have to keep batch sizes small. Not sure if you've looked yet, but here is a post from Marko, another new homebrewer, and he illustra...

Re: My first brew ever - a mini-BIAB All Amarillo APA

Hello Marko, Great post!!! I think you have considerable experience with taking good clear pictures and short, clear illustrations... ("This is not your first rodeo", as some of us in the USA might say. ;) ) Think you said you are a university teacher, so that might make sense. :drink: Using the BIA...

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

Hello Okram, and welcome to the forum! No doubt you've already downloaded the BIABacus file and found the CBT Page to help with Terminology. Sounds like you're on the right path. Let us know what questions you have, and let us know how it goes. Look forward to seeing your post... :thumbs: Had to rem...

Re: Does anyone have 15 gal MegaPot profile for Beersmith?

Our BIABacus Excel file makes estimates for all of these factors, after you input kettle dimensions, ingredients and boil time, and you can later adjust if routinely over or under after several brews... Or can leave the defaults. That's what I do (most others leave the defaults alone too). Things ch...

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

Hello Oli, Let me take a quick stab at this for you... Initially for my first 20 batches they were almost all around 5 gallons into packaging or a tad over, around 19 liters. Then I had several where I brewed extra because..it turns out, I drink too much beer. :dunno: ;) :thumbs: Then I had some guy...

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

Hello Kenbar, and welcome. No problem on equipment recommendations. But some questions we will have include how large batch sizes do you want to have? Here in the USA, common to have 5 gallons / 19 liter into packaging (keg or bottles). Wish to keg, or to bottle? What kind of space do you have? Deta...

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

Hey Miles, Let me take a stab at helping you again on this... On the BIABacus I would fill out other areas necessary (sections E through H...and maybe I) should you like the final result of this beer - to be able to repeat it in the future. This includes mash temperatures and times, yeast, etc. We n...
