    Are you saying @Denny that he has a small one?!? :cross:Ok, I'll grow up now. Krausen is made
    up of things like proteins, as well as yeast, and there are lots of reasons, including a high

  • Posted in thread: This is how big your Mash Tun needs to be on 01-03-2015 at 05:38 PM
    I am fairly new to all grain, so I might have been off on my water volume calculations, but I
    ran out of room in my 52 qt rectangular mash tun while batch sparging a 10 gal 1.065 pale ale.
    So, I decid...

    Yeah, the tannins in the hops bind the proteins in the beer. More hops = more foam

    CO2 is absorbed more readily into cold liquids than warm ones. By letting it warm up you are
    encouraging the CO2 to come out of solution.There's a whole world of stuff that affects this.......

    Most likely from the crush being too coarse. Get it milled twice, or better yet, tighten the
    gap if you can. 0.032"-0.034" (credit card) to start with. You can go quite a bit finer even
    (0.028"), sinc...

    About to dry hop mine today after 14 days in the primary.For best results, rack it off the
    yeast before dry hopping.

    Followed the great tips here. I cranked down on the mill, stirred like it owed me money and
    sparged at 170. Made an IPA last night, expecting 1.064 and got 1.072.Sparge hotter. I use
    185-190 F water f...

    Would it be OK if I let this sit in primary for two weeks and then did a week of dry hopping in
    a keg chilled?Sure...or even 4 weeks in primary...whatever it takes.

    I've been getting good results mash hopping my Lagers. I'm not looking for overpowering hop
    flavors or aromas, just a good balance and clean flavor. Mash hopping has done this for me.Out
