Well, the results were mixed, but any problems may have been self imposed. The beer I brewed had a lot of rye, but was not overly hopped. For some reason there was a lot more break material than I expected even though I have brewed a fair amount of rye beers. The boil looked like egg drop soup. The hop dam worked well at keeping the wort clear until it reached the top of the perforated plate. At that point the gumminess clogging the holes slowed the flow considerably. It did drain and I got my expected volume to my fermenters, so overall I'm happy. It was almost funny. The run off from the mash was fine, but I had to wait patiently for the kettle to finish draining.
I'm still curious how it will work on a hoppy IPA with 2-row as the bulk of the grist?
Itís best to brew dark beer at night, because that way the darkness gets into the beer. óBohuslav Hlavsa
