Posted in thread: Attempting to calculate %ABW & %ABV per fermentation CO2 bubble on 01-17-2017 at 01:55 PM
I can attest that there are more problems to determining abv/abw from counting bubbles than all
the theory being talked about here. When I first built my fermentation chamber, I built a

Sorry if this was covered earlier. I couldn't find a thread. Ok, I have a "lager" that will
need bottling soon. I brewed a hoppy psuedo lager on 12/18 and fermented for 18 days at 58

Check out the following link for more on calculating the steinhart-hart coefficients from
resistance curves. There is a program that can be used to do the math for you. If you Google
around there is p...
Posted in thread: Mash Paddle Treatment on 12-31-2016 at 09:01 PM
I made an oak mash paddle and treated it with mineral oil. After 1 brew it looked raw again
