    Ok so the Blichman ToP says to have flame turned down so that the "wort" ramps no more than an
    average of 1.5F/min over 20-30min. I guess the pid was factory tuned for this amount of burner
    output. Do...

    When raising your mash temp manually via the pid as a planned step or maybe just trying to
    recover from unexpected temp drop in mash .....what's the highest temperature that you would
    set the pid or a...

    I am going ahead with this formula and see how it turns out with jrfehon's hop schedule. I'll
    be using a 1.5L started of the forbidden fruit. Going to LHBS for the oat malt. Might have to
    play with th...

    I am planning on making a go of this on Monday. Is this the version that is looking most
    promising so far? Also, is there any sub for oat malt or do i need to try to track some down?
    And what does the...

    WLP530 can take quite a while to get the last handful of points. I wouldn't be too concerned at
    this point. Hex made some good suggestions; I'd go with #2 then #1.And, there's little harm in
    doing 1 a...

    Thanks, Hex. I took another reading tonight, and it was at 1.030, so I think it's dropping.
    Then I thought about it for a minute, and wondered if I read the wrong line on the hydrometer
    yesterday. Not...

    Hi Hex, thanks for the reply and the input. I'll take another gravity reading today, and
    another tomorrow, and see where I'm at.I don't really have an opinion on the secondary, that's
    just what is cal...

    Pulled a gravity sample just now, and it reads 1.032 at 65 degrees, so temperature adjusted to
    1.033. Should it be around there at this point? It's been 13 days since going in the fermenter,
    and I sta...

    Can you explain the power output to me? I always just turn it to 99% or "On". Would the
    boil-off rate be higher with higher power? I would assume so but my temp on the BK seems to
    maintain at 212 F re...

    I am going to try to make this clone to be put in a 10 gallon barrel from corsair Distillery I
    picked up. Corsair had used the barrel twice... once for rum, and the second time for their
    barrel-aged g...
