  • Posted in thread: First All-Grain batch at the weekend but has it stopped fermenting? on 01-17-2017 at 01:10 PM
    Agreed, I brewed a low gravity mild awhile back and it pretty much finished overnight. 24-48
    hours isn't uncommon with some yeasts.

    I'll chime in with what I do...usually make my starter about 24 hours before brewing. Smack
    your pack before you start heating your water. I make my starter wort in a large sauce pan and
    transfer to a...

  • Posted in thread: Chugger pump and BIAB on 12-29-2016 at 12:25 PM
    Hey folks, I exclusively brew all grain BIAB with a keggle (bottom valve) and a bag. No fancy
    RIMS or HERMS etc. I chill with a simple immersion chiller into PET carboys. I just got a
    chugger pump for...

  • Posted in thread: Used bourbon barrel question on 12-26-2016 at 01:45 AM
    Just got a 5 gallon used Bourbon barrel. It was dumped beginning of November and still smells
    strongly of bourbon. I'll probably get to brew something to age in it in the week or 2. Should
    I worry abo...

  • Posted in thread: First BIAB batch- may have a huge problem on 12-08-2016 at 07:00 PM
    I mainly do 5 gallon BIAB batches in a 15.5gal keggle. When doing grain bills this large, I've
    found it helpful to break the grains up into 2 or even better 3 bags. This makes the weight
    more manageab...

    Hey there...I'd like to brew up small 3 gal batch of something over the holiday buy due to a
    medical emergency, I missed my LHBS. All I have on hand is about 4oz of Pils, 1lb of light DME,
    flaked whea...

  • Posted in thread: Late edition extract question on 06-26-2016 at 01:05 AM
    Extract beers are generally going to be a little darker, with the LME being darker than DME.
    Are you using mostly LME or DME? Is your LME fresh? Your going to get your lightest extract
    beers by using ...

  • Posted in thread: First biab brew day a relative success! on 05-11-2016 at 05:05 PM
    Congrats. As to clarity, if you get a handle on kegging, you won't notice much cloudiness at
    all. Since I started kegging my BIAB brews, the first pint or 2 may have some sediment in it
    but after that...

  • Posted in thread: Brew now, pitch later, oxygenate when? on 05-09-2016 at 12:12 PM
    The goal of oxygenation/aeration is to provide O2 for the yeast. I would chill to pitching temp
    no matter how long, then aerate and pitch. That way you'll optimal levels of O2 still in
