Posted in thread: Comparing First Wort Hopping to a Standard 60 Minute Hop Addition on 07-06-2015 at 07:21 PM
I also wonder if it matters if it's a high AA hop or low AA hop, and if it's a highly hopped
recipe or low hopped recipe.I love the exbeeriment, though. Generally if something really has
an effect it ...

@gameface: the BJCP bitter guidelines are more along aroma moderate to none, and flavour
moderate to low. I guess you could be fairly extreme within the guidelines but I rarely find
bitters with none ...

The great thing about brewing your own is that you can do it how you want.The BJCP guidelines
for bitters says they have very low to no hop flavor and aroma. If you want one like that you
can make one...

You can build a system around Kal's design for much much less than $6000 USD. You can further
modify it and make it for well under $1000 USD.But the basic process flow and setup are solid.

Hmm. I've not used a HERMS before. I am designing my system around a three vessel HLT/HERMS

As long as you haven't overcarbbed you haven't really messed up. Much easier to add more CO2
than to get rid of extra CO2.I've done the shake it method. I do it much like you described

Also, just wait for your HLT to come up to temp for your sparge water. Don't use the BK for
your sparge water because, obviously, you need a place for your wort to go while your sparge.
That place is ...
