    Ok, I have had a number of beers turn out much hoppier than I have desired. I believe
    overhopping occurs more often than not with all-grain brewing especially with full volume
    boils. This is because A...

    I always hated collecting yeast from a hoppy, truby mess so I started using Brulosopher's yeast
    harvesting method: absolutely love it!! I use the mrmalty calculator though to make sure I am
    getting m...

    I use A and couldn't imagine improving upon it, but I'm not saying it's impossible. I have also
    tried B and C. When peak activity dies down after 24-36 hrs (as indicated by Brewpi data), I
    ramp the te...

    I just add all of my dry hops at one time to the primary when the yeast is just past the peak
    of fermentation or a few days past. I don't add kettle flavor/aroma hops anymore even. I save
    it all for t...

    Here's a question....what are peoples processes for dry-hopping these beers?a)- Fermentation
    and dryhop in primaryb)- Fermentation, early dryhop (peak fermentation), then dryhopped in
    primaryc)- Ferme...

    I'd start there, as you can adjust accordingly from there. Because your online mash calc is
    good, it works, and i believe that is the correct way to go.check the book when you receive it,
    to check for...

    Bitterness on the back ned suggests to me that maybe your hops aren't quite top notch - either
    that, or theres a fermentation issue, which is separate to any of your equipment.If you brewing
    with Us-0...

    EDIT: I've just worked out the sparge calcs, and I would suggest your pre-boil volume is too
    high. thats why your calcs are out.the online mash calculator is good, but your sparge is out.

  • Posted in thread: Grainfather metric water formulas on 12-05-2016 at 07:42 PM
    That is a little odd.AS I'm metric I use a slightly different formula, and my volumea are
    pretty closethe metric formula is(grain weight x2.7) +3.5 = Mash volumeI cant remember the
    Sparge volume calcu...
