Posted in thread: Kegging equipment in New York City area on 07-05-2014 at 03:31 PM
I live in the New York City area (Brooklyn specifically) and I'm looking to keg my first beer
next month. Morebeer.com sells everything you need for $229, but I'm looking to see if I could
get it a li...

For those of you doing BIAB consistently, what kind of efficiency are you getting? I've been
doing mostly BIAB PM brews (with a sparge) for almost 3 years now, and I seem to get crazy high

I agitate my wort very well, but I was told by another brewer that even with proper agitation,
I likely have stratified wort, and that it's very difficult to prevent, no matter how much you

I just double checked my thermometer, and it read 32.3 in a glass of ice water, so it's pretty
close. I think I'll try mashing at a lower temp next time. I wasn't aware of the issue with
extract and l...

I'm a partial mash brewer, so I've come to accept that getting accurate OG readings with a
hydrometer is a crap shoot. It seems regardless of what the estimated gravity will be, I'm
always much higher...

WOW!!!Ooh, good idea! I still have ONE bomber left of the batch of this I brewed last fall.

It is very tough to mix wort and top off water - like others have suggested your best bet is
probably to measure your postboil gravity and then calculate the dilution. If you ever move to
an aeration ...

Why can you not move to all grain in your kitchen? I've been doing all grain in my kitchen for
years. I happen to be blessed with an electric stove with a very high output burner but if you
can boil 3...
