Usually 4-5 hours for me. When I have family obligations on the wife's side it seems like it

Posted in thread: BIAB used as hop spider? on 08-20-2015 at 05:09 AM
I use a hop sack with my 'alton brown turkey fry' ladder setup. Works nice....I switch from my
grain bag to my boil hop sock and it works great. Wish I had a pic for you OP, but yes, you can
do it! Wi...
Posted in thread: Pineapple Hefeweizen on 08-16-2015 at 05:48 AM
I used Diaperload's recipe on page 2. I didn't use the corn syrup as I wanted a light drinking
beer. I bought two pineapples and after chunking them out, I had about 4# of fruit. I tossed
them in the ...
Posted in thread: Why are so many people letting beer sit so long?? on 08-16-2015 at 03:32 AM
Three week fermenter guy here, or as others would lead you to believe, I'm lazy!Actually I just

My first batch I experienced the same thing. The only problem is that my water is groder, full

Posted in thread: wilserbrewer BIAB bags on 08-09-2015 at 05:42 AM
For the folks that might not read through 28 pages of reviews, I'm here to say these bags (and
customer service) are great. I am on brew 20 with my wilser bag. On brew 2, I didn't pay
attention to my ...
Posted in thread: Bag squeezing and adjusting grain absorption ratio? on 08-09-2015 at 05:20 AM
I don't squeeze, nor do I do any sort of sparge. My process is simple, I brew in a bag. Using
my wilser bag and hoist I simply raise the bag out of my wort, and let it gravity drain as I
bring my wort...
Posted in thread: New Danstar Belle Saison Dry Yeast? on 08-09-2015 at 04:37 AM
I brewed up the 'Citra Saison' that is in the recipe section, but I used this yeast instead of
what the recipe suggested (3711 I think?). It is a beast, ate it down to 1.006. I fermented at
85F. I dra...
