  • 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.

    You don't NEED a pH meter, and you don't NEED to be able to adjust the pH of a mash in
    progress. You can get most of what you need by using a good water calculator like Bru'nWater.

    I would first try turning the burner down as your coming up to 160 and keep it real low almost
    off. And if that doesn't work. Turn the burner off and just keep the lid on and watch the
    temperature if ...

    It's really not that difficult to do AG and simple water chemistry together for the first
    time.I would disagree, in my opinion there is no simple water additions, you need to know where
    your starting ...

    All great advise but if I was to try and take on all this info on water when first trying to
    tackle all grain I would get discouraged. Depending what your using for water, you can make
    good beer with ...

    What would be the benefits of this over just re-stirring the grain bed to get things in
    suspension? I understand the purpose, but seems like more work than just giving a little
    stir.If stirring does n...

    I just can't see that happening. I've got the same one and have never come close to this
    problem and I'm not gentle doughing in. it's not like a vacuum sucking tons of grain under if
    theres a hint of ...

    If you ever get a stuck runoff you can always try underletting. I have done this when I have
    gotten a stuck runoff when I was making a oatmeal stout. I have a pump but as described below
    you can do it...

    The only thing I can say is be more carefull when doughing in not to hit the tube, What i
    assume happened was just enough grain got under the false bottom to keep it a little raised off
    the bottom and...

    It is not uncommon for high gravity beers like the one your brewing to ferment out completely
    in 2-3 months. Also if you under pitched (didn't make a starter or use 2 packs of yeast), the
    fermentation...
