  • Posted in thread: Your worst home brewing mishap? on 10-07-2015 at 03:04 AM
    I dropped the stir bar into my conical fermenter when I pitched the yeast starter. I didn't
    think much about it until I went to drain some yeast out of the dump valve on the bottom of the
    fermenter. W...

    Trub doesn't affect the OG reading but it does affect how you calculate the recipe to achieve
    that OG, which I think is what the OP was asking. If you increase your batch size to account
    for trub loss...

    Found the thread that I thought was most helpful in case you decide to go with Beersmith. The
    first post explains things somewhat but what really helped me is the pdf attached in the third
    post by @ch...

    I don't like to use brewhouse efficiency in Beersmith as it's too hard to reproduce batch to
    batch. I prefer to set my batch size as my post boil and chill volume, and set the kettle trub
    to 0 whether...

    Who's got it in stock? Can't find it yet.

    To clarify, I placed it at 30 psi and unhooked the gas line. I did this because I've read that
    this is a way to store kegs before carbing and tapping. It is fine to store kegs this way, I do
    it from t...

    As you point out the only thing IPA like about the beer is the IBU's. Move the summit and first
    cascade/centennial addtion to a hopstand and that should bring the IBU's down and make a nice
    pale ale.

    Replace the Brewer's malt and oats with 8 lbs of light DME and steep all the rest of the
    ingredients. I'd round those numbers to the nearest ounce though, someone must have converted
    from metric or so...

    How long did you have them hooked up at 30 psi and at what temp? The carb level at equilibrium
    would be determined by the temp, it's possible they are undercarbed if it was in a very warm
    room. If I u...

    The 5 min addition seems a bit kitchen sink to me with 5 different hops, personally I like to
    keep it to 2-3 different hops late but I wouldn't say it's necessarily "breaking any cardinal
    rules". For ...
