Posted in thread: Hop Stand/Whirlpool - Getting great hop aroma/flavor on 11-25-2015 at 08:58 PM
ive found that even flameout additions in a hopstand as long as an hour barely add any
bitterness, Last double IPA I did had 8oz at 0min and another 8oz at 180F. Only bittering
addition was 1oz apollo...
Posted in thread: RIMS vs HERMS (gas fired) on 11-25-2015 at 02:25 PM
I have a 4 vessel HERMS system. My MT is a 120qt Igloo and my HEX is a keggle with 50' of 1/2"
stainless coil. To be honest, I've not been using my HERMS much. The temp rise is slow. The
advantage to ...

I do 16.5 gallon batches and have 2 5L and one 2L flasks. I used gallon jugs for a long time. I

I soaked spirals in Old Forester. Added 575ml to 5 gallons of Imp stout. It does come through,
but it is more of a player in the beer. I think it would be a waste of top shelf myself. An
empty Four Ro...

I will say I bought the MM-3 because I brew often. If I were brewing 4-5 times a year that
Cereal Killer is darn reasonable. I'd have no problem with that mill. I'm running another 30#
through mine to...

MM-3 for me. I bought the stainless rolls and 1/2" drive. It was way before they offered 2.0
and hardened rolls. I will say it has been love and hate. I've had difficulty with it always
wanting to fee...

Strips are better than nothing. I can tell you that Bru'n water will predict your mash ph and
your sprarge ph accurately enough to be trusted. As long as you know your water and can plug it
in. There ...

If you acidify your sparge water, or you sparge with distilled/RO, pH and gravity are no longer
factors. The reason to stop sparging around ~1.010 is because that is (roughly) where the pH of

No, my sprarges used to take that long. I have started speeding it up at the loss of some
efficiency. I now do sprarges of about an hour. I get about 85% into the fermenter. Just watch
you gravity on ...
