Posted in thread: Max Grain Bill in 10 gal kettle? on 05-07-2015 at 04:04 PM
remember you have to stir your grain once you mash in. if its an inch from the top of mash tun,
it will either be very messy or not stirred properly.

Lots of people use copper for HERMS coils
Posted in thread: Overshot OG - How To Dilute on 04-17-2015 at 10:58 PM
I've done it. I just used bottled distilled water. I added it in right before I pitched my
yeast. It will also dilute your IBUs too. Beersmith has a tool you can use to figure out how
much to add. If ...
Posted in thread: Finishing gravity always lower than projected on 04-17-2015 at 02:52 PM
I use my immersion chiller as a make-shift HERMS. I use my pump to recirculate my wort through
the IC, which is in my boil kettle with water around 180. I recirc until the grain bed reaches

I had issues with low FGs for a long time. My problem ended up being my hydrometer was reading
4 points low. It read 0.96 in distilled water. Check your hydrometer in distilled water. Could

Posted in thread: make a low abv ale and clean out the cupboards at the same time on 03-19-2015 at 05:09 PM

memory.Here's the grai...

the only way to be sure it to test the tincture. i would say to let it soak for a minimum of a
week or two. test it with an eye dropper. a drop isn't going to do too much damage. put it on a
Posted in thread: my final gravity is consistantly low on 11-23-2014 at 11:00 PM
My hydrometer reads .096 in my tap water. So, it off quite a bit. I haven't tried it in
distilled water. When I say I mash for 60+ minutes, its pretty close to an hour. I may go 10
minutes over, depen...

My attempt at stopping conversion with the addition of the first sparge water may be
inadequate. My wort is obviously more fermentable than I expect, but not as much as I'm
recording, due to my poorly...
