    I leave my sack in the wort as the IC cools it (I have flame out additions a lot, so
    technically should stay in the wort for 15-20 minutes anyways...) after this ant of time my
    sack is usually cool en...

    Technically, you will lose a couple IBU's if you sack it according to Brulosipher, But not
    sure if he squeezed all wort out of the hop sack, if not then that could have been where those
    two IBU's wen...

    I BIAB, I choose to use the hop sacks during boil and for dry hopping. I do not whirlpool, just
    cool the Wort, squeeze out the hop sack good and pour it all into the fermenter. I do not
    squeeze the dr...

    I have used increased mash temperature to drop the ABV of beers several times. I have not been
    able to detect a difference in the final character of the beer, other than the lower alcohol
    level. I wou...

    The corona with the proper adjustments and a drill chew through 15lb of grain in less than 2
    min''s a thing of beauty to watch it and bask in the steady 75% BIAB efficiency I now
    get! So glad I...

    Beautiful beer! I picked up 3# of apricot purée as well that I plan on adding to half of a
    saison I just brewed yesterday. My plan is to split half of the batch into a 3 gallon carboy
    with all of the ...

    Thought I'd share my first ever custom recipe I've developed. This is the first time it's been
    brewed and honestly it's so good I don't really think I would tweak it much if at all! My dad
    is a huge P...

    Brewing her again this weekend. So far I've done a lemon version, a blueberry version, and an
    accidental "shandy" version which was a great summer beer. This round I will go with a "citrus"
    version to...

    Kegged it.....first time brewing this recipe....first infected batch, I 4 years of
    brewing....arrrrrrrrrgh. No more storing yeast slurry for me. Not worth the $5 savings for a
    ruined batch....

    Need more info, mainly what your mash temp was but also what temp you fermented at. Also keep
    in mind, typically big beers like that tend to end at a higher FG. It's not uncommon for them
    to end at 1....
