    Some friends and I have done something very similar at a local hackerspace (Pumping Station:
    One) in Chicago.We chilled the fermenting chamber with a window air conditioner. The Pi can
    only provide 50...

    By the way I don't use BS, and am really considering just setting up and excel spreadsheet with
    all my info needed as every single (free, because I'm cheap:D) Android brewing app never is
    100% complet...

    I always did think that brewhouse eff was based on fermenter volumes, and really the only
    people that should be interested in brewhouse eff is accountants since that is about minimising
    losses (dead-s...

    JZ uses Tinseth method for hops.I think most people use Tinseth. The guys who like to brag seem
    to use Rager, since it has higher IBUs compared to Tinseth. Hops and IBUs are the most nebulous
    aspect o...

    I don't think using the volume into the fermeter for total efficiency is black and white
    stupid,(Re)Defining Brew House Eff as 'to the fermenter' is beyond stupid, in any color. How
    are you supposed t...

    Your issue is related to the 'trub loss' field and BS using (stupidly) 'to the fermenter' for
    efficiency. Setting 'trub loss' to '0' (always), and using batch size as what is 'in the
    kettle' helps, bu...

    Use a 1 gallon glass jug or growler as your starter vessel. They work fine, you just can't heat
    then cool in them. Sterilize it in the oven. A viable method would be to make an initial 3+
    liter starte...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter using dry yeast?? on 09-09-2013 at 08:17 PM
    I was wondering though, since it seems some are set on building starters with dry yeast, if it
    would be OK to do so, following the regular protocol of dry yeast. If they properly rehydrated,
    then put ...
