    I use a SS kettle w/ faulse bottom for my mash tun and I have to add 1.25 gal (5 qts) in
    addition to mash water requirement to fill the "dead" space below the false bottom. So if I

    Update - I racked both batches the other day and they turned out wonderful. The yeast cake
    batch came out much stronger @ 6.58% Alc. The OG = 1.054, FG = 1.004. The batch using the

    lb DME in 5 gal batch increases original gravity by about .008 or 2 Plato. (My notes say 1/3
    DME in a 2....

    After reading this post I'm throwing around the idea of making a trip to Milwaukee to this

    My favorite part is,I do rack to a secondary presently. But I think I will stop that. I need to

    Wow thanks. I have been using pure O2 through a stainless air stone as well from a hospitable
    grade tank w/reg and I was just wondering how long to aerate. However, I may have been over
