    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.

    Did you use distilled or RO water by any chance? Ive read that a lack of zinc in the wort can
    cause acetaldehyde to form.I did! Started with distilled and added to it to make soft water for
    a Czech Pi...

    I brewed a Czech Pilsner on April 15, OG 1.050. Used 2 packs of fresh Wyeast 2278 with a proper
    starter (used yeast calculator) on my stir plate, oxygenated with O2 before pitching as always.
    Had a st...

    For those mounting on a wall, how are you handling temp control?

  • Posted in thread: Beer Smith Settings for SS Brewtech Mash Tun on 06-20-2016 at 09:30 AM
    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...

    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 ...
