  • Started on an outside burner, soon moved to a bigger pot. I do some small BIAB batches on the stove. Won the 30A BCS Control Panel from Electric Brewing Supply in the HomeBrewTalk 2014 Big Giveaway. Today, I have an Electric BIAB system and BrewPi Fermentation Controller, but am still bottling. I have been using the "A Brewing Water Chemistry Primer" thread here on HBT for my water. The combination of a good water base, precise mash control from the BCS, panel, and precise fermentation control from the BrewPi has improved my beers quite a bit. I have the equipment for oxygenating the wort, so that is the next step.

    It was commercial, so I have no idea. The container just said 'honey'. One of these days I'll
    spring for a batch with fresh, local honey.

    I hate priming calculators (as you can get flat beer, or bottle bombs by carbing "to style"
    with them) ...Do you have a calculation or rule of thumb to use for bottle carbing without a

    That is a lot of headspace in the secondary. If it is done fermenting, I would get that bottled
    sooner rather than later. Congratulations on your first batch!

    You don't say how big the batch is or how big your starter is, but I would get the yeast
    pitched. I would rather have a little flavor from the starter than risk a bug getting a
    foothold in a batch.
