  • My wife got me a Mr. Beer kit Christmas of 2011. My first 3 batches were with mr beer products but now I am moving forward with other extracts and specialty grains. I have a 20qt pot. I still use the Mr. Beer fermentors because It gives me the chance to try new things with only using 2.38 gallons. I will eventually get some 5 gallon equipment. I have moved on to All Grain but still brew only 2-2.5 gallon batches as it lets me brew alot of different varieties.

    So I have been reading about using gelatin to clear beer and the only question I have is after
    you have heated and mixed in the gelatin I've read don't let it cool and add it straight to

    Yes, but there is a slight glitch in the BS software... it doesn't update automatically. In
    other words, when you make a change in your equipment, and therefor change your equipment
    profile, it won't ...

    Not brewing a kit. I just recently switched over to the keggle. I do have the deadspace inputed

    So I use Beersmith to make my recipes. I have a converted keg for a boil kettle. So my question
    is let's say your brewing a 5 gallon batch. So you boil kettle has .50 gallons of deadspace so
    you make ...

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I will ask my lhbs to double crush my grains until I can buy my
    mill.

  • Posted in thread: Low Efficiency on 03-29-2014 at 06:54 PM
    When all else seems constant and there is no great answer, then I would look at the crush.Never

    regularly c...

    John Palmer is a fly-sparger. That article is all about fluid dynamics, mash tun shapes, etc.
    The OP is asking about batch sparging.It makes no difference how fast you drain with batch
    sparging. Drain...

    After you drain your MT do you leave alot of liquid in the bottom of the tun? Could be leaving
    alot of wort left over in there, which could lead to poor efficiency. When I batch sparge I add
    the grain...
