Lately I've been keeping some version of Jukas' Row 2 Hill 56 clone on tap. I change up the
hops and yeast, but I love that grainbill for a quaffable beer that showcases the hops. It also
works out we...
Posted in thread: Can I do a full volume mash using BIAB numbers. on 12-25-2014 at 11:50 PM
Ah, got it. As long as your cooler is big enough shouldn't be an issue, it's just a vessel for
the mash. If it provides improved temp control all the better. If you're using the bag you
don't have to ...

Took a minute to think about that. It reads 10-12 high. But that's not what you said: "when I
get up to 153 my old thermometer is reading around 140 - 142", i.e. the old one reads low. Did

Just checking, but there wasn't a blow off attached, right? Hoping that isn't a layer of

I prefer having secondaries downstream because I can mount them inside and just have one line
into the keezer. For me it's mainly to carb to different levels. I've never had a need to burst

Some people get away with short lines - maybe it's the rise to their tap, better
