I discovered Bitters and Esters this summer, and have been in quite a few times. John and the
whole staff is super friendly and helpful. I actually have an 8-gallon pot on its way, so I'll
be doing so...

Eh, I wouldn't worry too much about that unless it's something you're planning on having around
for a long, long time. Oxidation can lead to flavors of wet cardboard, but it doesn't happen

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I'll be dropping the PSI to 9 today. Just did the 30 for the first
24 hours because this is going to be served at a wedding on Saturday, and I don't have the
luxury of just ...

I'm using a 30qt (7.5G) pot and I sparge about 1-2G depending on the batch volume. Consider
doing the same, there's not really a NEED for you to do full volume BIAB. I haven't done this
yet, but I wil...

I just kegged my first batch today, and I'm having a bit of trouble. After filling the keg,
turning the gas on to 30 PSI, purging the headspace, and shaking it for a few minutes, I left
it in my chest...

Krausening is a bit different than what I'm talking about. Someone else had mentioned steeping
some crystal malt and adding that to the beer for more body. My thought was to use it in place

Here's a thought: could I potentially take the idea of a "grain tea" and use it in place of
priming sugar? Steep some crystal malt, cool it, and then use that to carb up the bottles?

Default efficiency is set to 75% on Brewtoad. I started bumping it up to about 84% when I
noticed I was overshooting my OG, but I eventually discovered it was the hydrometer that was
off by .005 and I...

What was your gravity prior to topping off with water?Unfortunately don't know. It's not
something I normally do, but I might start. I probably would have never added a full 2 gallons
had I seen what ...

I'm assuming 5 gallon recipe. When I run the numbers in my BeerSmith phone app (don't
completely trust) I get an OG of 1.054 for a 5 gal BIAB. I'm going to point to the adding 2
gallons to primary to ...
