    ABOUT ME

  • Recently (June 2012) got "back" into homebrewing, did one extract kit 12 years ago, two more about 6 years ago. Am full in now, based on the awesome results I've which are largely due to online resources like this forum. Have brewed 9 batches since June 2012, building my pipeline. 5 of these batches are at drinking age now, 4 are conditioning.

    Well I ended up preheating by transferring the 4.5 gallons of strike water over, held for 10
    mins, transferred back to HLT then back again. Strike water was 168 and I hit 156 in the mash,
    was shooting...

    Cool thanks. I tested though and there is 6 cups of water below the false bottom that won't be
    in contact w the grain so I'm using .375 gallons for the tun dead space. This way I'll have the
    right gra...

    My SS Brewtech 10 gallon mash tun just arrived and planning on doing a couple batches this
    weekend in it. I was wondering if anyone is using this mash tun along with Beer Smith and if

  • Posted in thread: SSBrewTech Announced a New Insulated Mash Tun! on 06-12-2016 at 06:42 PM
    Yes and no... With RIMS, probably not. With HERMS, depends upon efficiency. With HERMS we're
    going to be using our HLT water later for sparging AND of course, IDEALLY you don't want to
    raise the temp ...

    Any pictures of final result?

  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 03-01-2016 at 03:13 AM
    Just finished brewing an oaked mild. Inspired by Palmer's "Belladonna Took's Oaked Mild".
    Second time, first one was great. Just a few days on some French oak chips.

    That's what I wanted to know thanks. It seems like wee heavy would be a good beer to add Brett
    too with all the residual sugar but not in the bottle, better do it in the secondary

    Here's what I'm thinking now. I have plenty of Belgian 750's, corks and cages. Thinking of
    getting a brett culture and adding it to the 5 gallon batch while bottling. Beer is 1.076 OG
    and 1.021 now, W...

    I have a wee heavy, 7.5%, been aging since January in a better bottle with some oak chips
    soaked in bourbon. Second time using the chips and little to no flavor from them, and no
    infections at all. I ...
