Posted in thread: Nottingham done at 68% attenuation? on 01-16-2013 at 01:41 AM
Thanks. Good info. I gave it a gentle swirl and raised the temp up to 70, so we'll see if it'll
drop a couple points, which i guess is unlikely at this point. If not, i guess i'll just have a

First time using Nottingham. I've read it has a high attenuation. But i've had a 1.054 porter
sitting at 63 degrees for 17 days and have only gotten down to 1.017. 68%, right? Has anybody
else had thi...

Why not just tie a microfiber hops bag to the end of the siphon? That will certainly prevent
any yeast cake from entering a bottle or keg.Somebody please correct me if i'm wrong, but i
seem to remembe...

Got my sheets back. Entered a pumpkin ale in 21A & got a 31 & 29. I'm feeling pretty good about
it considering it's my 1st competition entry. Very interesting to get feedback from someone who
Posted in thread: 25 mins into boil of 1st BIAB on 10-05-2012 at 03:35 PM
That's about what I get for my stovetop BIAB efficiency wise. I've personally found that if I
pump some heat and stir for a minute or two at 20 and 40 minutes into the mash I can maintain
temp pretty ...

66% efficiency as far as i can figure. have to admit i'm not exact on a couple temps & volumes
to calculate gravity. not bad i guess for a 1st try. of course the only measurement that
matters will be ...

Thanks. Just finished up. Right...obvious in retrospect that boiling off water would raise
gravity. 1.033 (adjusted for temp) to 1.050. And yes...went from 3.5 gal to about 2.5 gal. And

I'm trying out a 2.5 gallon batch of a SNPA clone for my first attempt at this. I have to say,
it may take longer than extract, but is MUCH easier once the boil starts. No turning off heat &
