    The most I've used was just shy of 3oz. I'm not particularly keen on IPA's so I don't
    anticipate using much more than that. [emoji6]

    I also do not use any form of hop filter. I just throw it all right into the kettle. And notice
    how clear this beer is....326159

    When chilling the wort,are you guys running the cooled wort into fermenter after one pass,or
    are you recirculating it a couple of times?Do not recirc the wort from the chiller back into
    the kettle. Co...

    I brew with the GF the same way I have always brewed. Anything that will be coming in contact
    with boiling wort does not need to be sanitized beforehand as the boil itself will take care of
    that. As l...

    Wow those times are ridiculous. Unfortunately you got a dud it would seem. I would also go

    Well, got my grainfather last night, and I think its got a defect making it unusable. There is
    a dent in the basket underneath one of its "legs", for lack of a better word. This dent
    protrudes to the ...

    I had the same exact thing about a month ago. A giant phlegm wad floating around. It was
    definitely the whirlfloc tab that caused that coagulation. Beer went into the keg crystal clear
    last week with ...

    I've already tried 3. I'm pretty sure I've ruled that out.I would get that unit exchanged
    rather than what you're doing. That isn't normal and trying to make something work that should
    out of the box ...

    Oh and I leave the lid on for mashing but off during the boil and it never loses boil. I also
    brew indoors with ambient temps around 67-68 so that could also have something to do with it.
    If I were br...

    I have to look for the paper I wrote my times on but they weren't that long I can tell you and
    I'm like maybe 20 feet above sea level, I'm on Long Island. It takes longer to go from mash
