  • Posted in thread: Magnum apple cider kit on 12-18-2014 at 06:09 AM
    Hi lads, bought a cider kit and threw it together. Took me like 15 minutes! Anyways, in my
    haste, I forgot to measure the OG. Not that it matters, but I'm just curious as I have never
    done this magnum...

    My mash is invariably 90 minutes. The base malts I am mostly using are MO, Golden Promise and
    NZ Pilsner. In my experience and with those base malts, I most definitely get better wort.
    Faster to begin...

    To me, it sounds like you identified a problem with your brew and fixed it on the fly. Well
    done.You could bang those numbers into some brewing software and it'll calculate the efficiency
    for you. The...

    Longer mash times will give you a more fermentable wort. This may or may not be to your liking,
    depending on the style you are brewing.

  • Posted in thread: All-grain first time mistakes? on 01-03-2014 at 11:30 AM
    Good thread. I just did my first all grain BIAB. I think I really suffered with wort extraction
    from the bag. I wasn't used to having so much grist in there and could hold the bag up and
    squeeze it at...

    I just finished bottling my last brew. 1.081 which finished up at 1.015. One dry packet of
    rehydrated US-05. No problems whatsoever. I'm not sure how many cells are in there, but its a
    fair few and en...

    Its a good substitute and you wont have to worry about less performance out of the grain.

  • Posted in thread: Do you dry hop in the primary or the secondary? on 07-19-2013 at 08:08 AM
    I have never, ever done a secondary and I only brew IPAs. All my dry hopping is done in primary
    and I have not been displeased with the results so far. I use koppafloc in the boil and
    isinglass in the...

  • Posted in thread: first cider problem! on 07-19-2013 at 08:00 AM
    Yeast need oxygen, so maybe that is the issue here. Take the cap off and cover with tin foil
    instead? I dont think I would cap fermenting bottles of cider. Even if its plastic, I wouldn't
    want that pl...

  • Posted in thread: Letting wort stand overnight before the boil on 07-19-2013 at 07:55 AM
    ^^ This isn't a no chill method tho. This is a delayed boil. I think you would prolly be
    alright. Not recommended of course, but likely ok. As you will be boiling everything the next
    day, there wont b...
