    I'm using the BIAB method as outlined on THIS site, by DeathBrewer... That method IS with two
    pots, one for mash, the other for sparge. I'm not the only one getting solid results that way,
    across a ra...

    One way to increase your efficiency is to mill your grain finer. If you are having your LHBS
    mill it, ask them to run it through twice.A mash out step is also critical in maximizing

    yes, that's globalconn, and that's who I got mine from, too.I still really can't believe people

    I use that yeast for my Bavarian weissbier. You will notice the sulfur odor diminish daily. I'm
    guessing you fermented cool, low-mid 60's. It will turn out nice this at those temps, more
    clove, less b...

    Greenflash runs their water through an activated carbon filter and then adds gypsum.When
    brewing IPA's or pale ales, I will add 6-8 grams of gypsum for a six gallon batch. When I do
    not add the gypsum...

  • Posted in thread: Scented Oxy-Clean OK on glass? on 04-07-2010 at 06:59 AM
    Yeah. You can also substitute all the grain in your recipe with table sugar - it's way cheaper
    than malt or extract. :DJK. You're already saving money by using Oxi-Clean rather than B-Brite
    or soemthi...

  • Posted in thread: Cream Ale -- Which Yeast on 02-23-2010 at 04:40 AM

    be disappointed.

    10,000 BTU would be fine. I use an old turkey fryer burner with it turned down really low, it
    can't be more than 12,000 BTU opened up all the way. Also I use a false bottom.
