  • Posted in thread: Batch Sparging: what's your setup like? on 01-19-2013 at 04:14 PM
    I'm sure my setup is pretty similar to everyone else. I put my 10 gallon mash tun on top of a
    table, then vorlauf and drain first runnings directly into my boil kettle. After adding sparge
    water, I le...

    I mix StarSan in a spray bottle, which usually lasts at least a couple brew days. I run out of
    StarSan maybe once or twice per year.

    I don't think you would benefit from a crush much finer than that. The endosperm from the

    you went too f...

    Makes me wish I had a grain mill. Personally, I think all three look very good. I don't see any
    unbroken husks. The third grind looks to be the finest, which could result in higher efficiency
    for you ...

    If anyone here is a fan of mystery or CSI type shows, then you need to watch Luther. I enjoyed
    watching Luther way more than CSI and I would say it's ALMOST as addicting as Dexter . Now I
    just wish th...

    The Grey Really good film making. Brutal, poignant.Agreed. I felt like the last 1/4 of the
    movie sort of dragged on. Otherwise it was awesome and I still gave it five stars.This has
    probably been ment...

    +1 to b-boy's comment. For what it's worth, I'm an exercise physiology major and that's more or
    less exactly what we are taught. For strength training, go with about 70-75%% of whatever your
    Maximum i...
