    ABOUT ME

  • After +10 years of sitting on the bench, I'm back in the game. I've done the bucket, carboy and bottle thing, and it's really over rated (sure it's cheap, but too much work to really enjoy yourself) so I promised myself that I would only start up again once I was in a place to do the things I wanted to but didn't have the space or $$ needed at the time.

    New set up is based on all the great advice others have given over the years, so I'm a BIAB AG to Conical to Keg to Glass brewer with a focus on process simplicity and efficiency so I can spend less time and effort on the process of brewing and more on ingredients and developing recipes that are my own.
  • changes up too often to keep updating (need to spend time brewing and not editing a profile) likely an IPA, EPA, American Brown, Stout/Imperial Stout, and on occasion a cider or a mead
  • Secondary is overrated- go buy a conical (you won't regret it)
  • Too much work
  • Beer, Beer, more Beer- mostly Ales, Hard Cider, maybe a Mead, oh and some version of a soda for the kids.

    I am trying to figure out how to do a BIAB lager. I am having surgery in the end of August and
    want something in the fermentors so when I am done recovering, I don't have to start from
    scratch again.M...

    the whole point of BIAB is to not spend a small fortune on buying and converting coolers,
    having a HLT, building a brew stand.. etc.. there are many different ways to BIAB and all of
    them are just as ...

    That is a great idea. Thanks for that. I did notice that moving the bag up and down was very
    effective because it brought up hot water from the bottom of the keggle. But I would like to
    swap out the h...

    OK, so, I brewed a Belgian Strong Golden Ale today and I finally got all of my ducks in a row
    in terms of efficiency. First, adjusted my pH with acidulated malt to hit 5.3. Next, I made
    sure to hit al...

    Dobo, I happen to have a PhD in biochemistry so I'm doing ok on that end ;) I also understand
    that there are lots of compenents to efficiency. I'm not really interested in reinventing this
    wheel (plen...

    Still looking for explanations for my low mash efficiency with BIAB. I did a near full volume
    mash starting with 7.75 gallons water and an 18 lb grain bill (15.75 lb 2 row and the rest
    various special...

    Since you would need to start with over 11 gallons of water for the grain bill you
    described.And you will have to boil to get down to your desired volume and SG, which isn't
    always good either since "...
