  • Posted in thread: Size of False Bottom For Mash Tun on 12-14-2012 at 03:07 PM
    Out of the million posts here, I'm sure there's something on this, so forgive me for not being
    able to find it (I'm just anxious to get started).Anyway, I've been using 12" or so false
    bottom in a San...

  • Posted in thread: What Type Of Sparge for Recirculation System on 03-02-2012 at 01:23 PM
    I'm in the planning phase of building a simple (but getting more complex day by day)
    recirculation system (for 10 gallon batches). I'm going to use a hot plate with a gas burner
    combination to keep te...

    Yes, cold break is happening in the chiller. No, it doesn't gunk up the chiller. It's a
    gelatinous type of substance and it ends up flowing through the chiller just fine in my
    experience. Just a heads...

    Okay, BYO defines "cold break" as:"Wort cooling causes solids, called the cold break, to form

    material i...

  • Posted in thread: 2nd Primary Question on 01-02-2012 at 02:53 PM
    I'm doing a recipe that calls for a "second primary" where the instructions are to transfer to
    secondary (once fermentation slows) but move 1/2 the yeast cake and add candi sugar.It's my
    understanding...

  • Posted in thread: Reaction to maltodextrin? on 12-25-2011 at 06:09 PM
    Actually,maltodextrin is about 5% fermentable. Was the maltodextrin in a seperate bag? If
    so,don't use it next time & see if that helps. If it's mixed with something,try another kit or
    recipe. I still...

    Generally the sugars in wort are dextrose, maltose, maltotriose, and oligosaccharides. (Long
    chain sugars)Thanks for such quick replies!I'm looking at the extract fact sheets and see that
    they do cont...

    Sugar alcohol (e.g. Maltitol) causing digestive issues is normal... Maltodextrin is a natural
    component of malted grains. It's one of the unfermentable chemicals that contributes to body
    and "mouth fe...
