  • Posted in thread: Hanna Phep+ calibration each use? on 01-23-2011 at 12:17 AM
    Good point about it being most accurate in the range I'll be taking measurements. Like I said
    in my 1st I'm not all that concerned about it, but I didn't expect it. I know people who only
    calibrate th...

  • Posted in thread: Hanna Phep+ calibration each use? on 01-21-2011 at 09:58 PM
    I got a Hanna Phep+ pH tester last week. I soaked it per instructions, and calibrated with 4.01
    and 7.01 solutions. I took some readings on various things. I stored it in storage solution,
    after rinsi...

    I marked a paddle, then metal ruler, and ouitside the kettle while I was at it. The kettle
    marks have worn off. Like someone said add water a half gallon at a time from a pitcher or
    kitchen measure of...

    Good call RM-MNI think small batches on the stove are great. I do 1 or 2 each year in the
    winter. I have yet to do one this year though.You could probably do 2.5 - 3 gallon batches on
    the stove with y...

    Sorry I meant to mention BIAB in my post and never did. I was writing my post assuming BIAB
    from paraordnance post.Yes bigger pot for future larger batches.If you can find a turkey fryer
    big enough I'...

    Like paraordnance mentioned. If you can already do full boils, which you didn't mention
    specifically you should be able to transition to all grain for the price of a paint strainer
    bag. The hold a dec...

    I had mine apart quite a few times, the vibration would loosen things up a bit. I put petroleum
    jelly on the gears. How many beers have you put through it so far? It really is a cheap way to
    crush gra...

  • Posted in thread: Do you rinse your grains when mashing with BIAB? on 01-21-2011 at 04:47 PM
    HermitI had a small kettle when I started BIAB. I'd mash with what ever amount of water and
    grain I could get in the kettle, which varied from brew to brew. I'd add top off water as it
    evaporated duri...

    I don't know why any one would want to make this any more difficult than needed, 75% eff is
    good enough for me.I agree. Like I said in the other post its really a minimalist approach. I
    was getting 7...

    gingerdawg, I have used a pasta mill for crushing also for quite some time. It finally wore
    out. I can't get a fine enough crush and I've ran it through as many as 3 times. It did get a
    lot of brews o...
