would love to see the recipe and to learn how it goes for you!

just completed the brew on a split brew, 40 litres to a basic american golden ale style, put into 2 fermenters one with Cal V yeast, and a second with a Belgian Trappist. Dry hopped the Cal batch with nelson Sauvin, got about 78 brewhouse efficiency. the brau has just made my brewing such a delightful exercise! such a pleasure to kick back with a beer watching my brau steam away into the brisk night air, then yield up its rich golden brew.
anyone have a good porter recipe to share?

SFBrewer,

I have been delayed on brewing the DFH 90 Minute Clone.

Here is the link to the recipe.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com//f69/dog...-clone-260675/

After reading the full thread there have been some changes worth noting from the folks who have brewed this recipe.
Use English Maris Otter instead of American two row and ferment at 68 instead of 64.

I will post when I get'r done.

Still loving the Braumeiester and thought I'd check in with the group. I've changed my process a bit and seem to get the clearest wort and the least stray grains by doing the following.

Get a large paint strainer bag from Lowes - wash it thoroughly and cut a small hole in the bottom that will allow the center rod to slide through it. I put the malt pipe in, slide my bag down the rod, then put the bottom plate in the bag making sure it slides down. Pull the top of the paint strainer bag up around the lip of the malt pipe with its elastic holding it in place. Do not use the bottom screen. I then fill with grain by recipe, add 1/2 lb of rice hulls, poking in the mash to insure its good and mixed. Then put the top screen and to plate on - gently moving them in place to avoid snagging the bag.

This setup really catches the stray grains and also eliminated my early "fountain" problems. I usually net 77% efficiency +\- 1 or so which is perfectly acceptable, and most important for me, repeatable.

Thought I would take a picture of my paint strainer process that I'm using but it doesn't show up very well. Brewing a light saison in my air conditioned garage brewery. Gotta love brewing indoors when it's 100+ degrees outside!

Better shot of the bag at mash out can see how clear the wort is at this point. Shuffleboard anyone?

How big of a paint strainer bag do you use? Seems like a great idea. I get way to much grain sneaking past my mesh screens. Thanks
