Water to grist ratio will affect your Eff. Mash out temp will affect your Eff. It's cheaper for me to conserve gas doing the boil than to conserve grain during my mash so mine is rather lower than most. I know when calculating grain bills that for my smaller bills (higher water to grist) I get 72% a...

Hi there Ralph, Hope this isn't OT but I know you are a huge ESB fan. I was chatting to a very knowledgable brewer the other day and he reckons for English malts, a two hour boil makes a massive difference.

I've noticed alot of our American cousins logging on to BIABREWER, and from what I've heard on the grapevine, 1187 is a very popular yeast in ...

You should never have to be sorry for a good, informative post Ralph. Interesting what you say about Ales being preferable to Lagers. I have brewed Lagers here over winter, because the temperature would dictate that, this is best. But I just don't go for Lager. I much prefer an Ale with good body, ...
