Posted in thread: Pre-boil vs. post boil gravity. Please help! on 09-06-2015 at 06:58 PM
I am at my wits' end here. This is my second batch using batch sparge after about 20 BIABs. I
was averaging 72% efficiency with BIAB. My first batch sparge mash did not go great. 62%
efficiency. I'll ...
Posted in thread: Let's talk about treating water on 06-05-2015 at 07:40 PM
This Beersmith blog entry today left me kind of frustrated. Brad writes about how adjusting for
pH is different when using BIAB but never really explains why it is any different.I use Bru'n
Water for ...

Thanks for the discussion.I am fine with "that's just the way everyone does it" answer, because
that's where I wanted to be. My questioning came because I've noticed some people doing BIAB
get higher ...

Volume into primary would be the 5.5, including trub, unless you leave it behind in kettle.
Volume out of fermenter would be the 5.0 ishSo for the sake of an efficiency calculation, I
should use 5 gal...

For brew house efficiency, it's supposed to be total wort in fermenter. Wort in the kettle,
hoses, pump, chiller are all losses in your system.So, since I dump everything into the
fermenter, might the...

I was hoping I could get some feedback on how I take my volume readings.I have a 10Gal kettle
with volume markings on the inside that I put on and are very accurate.I use a 0.08Gal water/lb
Posted in thread: The "feel" of carbonation on 02-21-2015 at 04:18 AM
Seems simple enough: your beer is flatter. Whether you actually carbonated the beer to the same
volumes as Accumulation or not, you're obviously losing a lot of carbonation to excessive foam.
If you c...

I recently tried to clone a beer I really like that's seasonal. Today I compared the two. The
flavor is similar but the biggest difference I notice is in the feel of the bubbles of
carbonation. The co...
Posted in thread: Aeration bubbled out of carboy on 02-08-2015 at 04:54 PM
I just purchased one of those aquarium pump aeration kits and used it for the first time
yesterday. I left it in the carboy for about 45 minutes (I read 30-60 minutes at least). I
stepped away from a ...
Posted in thread: Please explain pH and Bru'n Water on 02-04-2015 at 08:37 PM
Now I sound like a super noob and I guess I'm using terms incorrectly. I BIAB so for me, the
mash volume is the only volume I have.Is your pH meter properly calibrated? Unless you dumped a
ton of acid...
