  • Originally I wanted to brew so that I wouldn't have to buy as much. I bought a kit and it just sat there. A year later I dug out the kit and threw the LME away. Then I bought another kit and from there I went full bore from extract to BIAB to kegging.

    Make your test batch a stout or porter. You won't notice any extra burning if it does
    occur.Inspect your element afterwards, I bet it will stay clean if it is actually ULWD.I

    Interesting that this thread was dug up and originally posted in 2010. That would make this
    little boy almost 5!

    Great advice, thanks! When I moved to secondary I didn't go nuts with aeration- basically just
    the aeration from pouring a bucket into a glass carboy.So bottling ASAP is my goal then, or do
    I let it s...

    Now you have an oxygenated beer. I would bottle this thing ASAP or you're really going to
    notice the affects from that second aeration. Normally fermentation only takes a few days. If
    you had one bubb...

    I did a test batch yesterday of a 1.041 light ipa. The element was not very dirty but needed
    washed.Woo Pig you say to run the pump but when do you do it? 15 minutes before the boil end
    like the immer...

    I figured that it might take longer but I would be seriously ticked if I ruined a batch of beer
    because of scorching.

    I finally fired up this electric BIAB. I had a question about heating up the wort.Basically
    what I have going on here is there is a sparge arm at the top that I run during the mash

    I have a 5500 watt stainless ULWD ripple and it fits fine through my 1.5 TC.

    I just dry hop into the primary bucket but I use a fine mesh hop bag. I don't ever secondary.
    For me it just adds an extra step and does nothing but allows more cleanup. No clearer beer
    either.But hey...

    You said it was a kit but didn't specify if it was extract. If it is extract that is your
    problem.1.020 or thereabouts is common with that stuff.
