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.

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,

Good thread. I just did my first all grain BIAB. I think I really suffered with wort extraction

squeeze it at...

Posted in thread: Do you dry hop in the primary or the secondary? on 07-19-2013 at 09:08 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 09:00 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 08:55 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...
