  • 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.

    Mine turned out 'thin' and very tart. Maybe more Crystal or some honey malt next time. The

    lambic, or fruit wi...

    I have a 50lb bag of Maris Otter. Anyone tried brewing this with that instead of 2-row?MO would
    be fine as the base grain in this beer. However, given that the raspberry flavor is the primary
    focus of...
