    I used a Thermopen for everything for years. More recently I got a 2-channel BBQ thermometer
    from Thermoworks in addition. Being able move a fast accurate probe to various spots in the
    mash is much mo...

    Wanted to chime in on this quickly (though late), even mashing for 30 mins, I am getting over
    80% attenuation with mash thickness of 1.33 and sparging to volume. I think the fine crush has
    to be at le...

    I finally remembered to take some images of my BIAB direct fired RIMS brew stand. Everything I
    need for brew day is on the cart or on a shelf nearby. My mill is on the other end of the

    recirculating? Have you ...

    I brewed my Brown Porter on Monday. I know this is not the best way but I decided to change two
    variables. I mashed at 154 (not at 152 as usual) and I closely monitored the SG of the mash and
    as soon ...

    I brewed this on Sunday, it's bubbling away right now, but seems a little odd. Very little
    krausen on top, maybe half inch, with rather small bubbles. Vigorous fermentation going on
    below though. Almo...

    Just getting caught up reading posts after a few days. Thanks to all who have chimed in. I hope
    to brew on Monday and will try the shorter mash time at my "standard" temp. that seems to be
    the consens...

    85%, same as when I was mashing for 60. It looks like my experiment with a 5 minute mash was
    less, perhaps all the way down to 84%.Cool!I'm trying that!
