I think I should try to add some. Otherwise I'll get around a 2.6 % beer.So, .7 DME in 1gal
water. boil. chill and add. should put the final around 3.2% don't you think?or does the extra
1gal of water...

Sure can. DME will yield ~ 40 gravity points per pound per gallon. So dissolve .7 pounds on DME
in water. Boil for 10-15 minutes, cool it in a ice water bath and pour it in. Even if you beer
is past a...

over from the early days of home brewing when we were trying to reverse engineer what AB was

I've found that letting the mash go 75 minutes, and then heating to 168 f for a few minutes

I went the other way - from a three vessel batch sparge system to BIAB. Once I got things
dialed in my efficiencies are comparable to what I got from batch sparging - ~80% mash
efficiency, 72% system ...
Posted in thread: PVC as a measuring stick? on 05-18-2014 at 12:36 AM
I use a dowel. The only time I use it to measure the volume is before the boil to get mash
efficiency. Once boil starts I monitor the SG during the boil. (I have a refractometer, but
used a hydrometer...

It would be wise to check with a hydrometer. The conversions get less accurate the more alcohol
is present.Like he said.It is important to understand that a hydrometer and refractometers
Posted in thread: BU/GU = 0.6 Why does the wort taste very bitter? on 04-20-2014 at 02:48 PM
