  • I use the Brew-In-A-Bag method for easy All-Grain brewing. I am a BIAB evangelist. I wash yeasts 4-5 times before dumping it. I have made two electric 1500W heat sticks. Yee-haw. That combined with my stove-top burner gets us to mash, sparge, and boil temps in no time. I reuse 48 frozen bottles of water in a tub for an ice bath.

    I am not sure if I didn't just leave on the yeast long enough, or if the strain of Kent
    Goldings I was using caused it.I have made so much good beer since then like APA's, Heffe's,
    Belgians. Using US-...

    You sure about that? just brewed his ordinary bitter, and it has Special Roast.So the recipe

    I set my TC to 59*F and my ESB fermented very cleanly. No off-tastes whatsoever. I used Jamil
    Z's ESB recipe, but I dry-hopped with EKG.Its a great beer. Thanks for the help guys.

    How long do you primary for and do you secondary? You might not be allowing the yeast enough
    time to clean up after itself. English yeasts can be harder to work with, but worth the
    trouble.No 2ndary, ...

    Well I will try lower temps, like set the controller to 60*F.I will also pitch more yeast by
    doing larger starters.

    of the u...

    that calls for different temperatures at different times of the mash process before the boil.Is
    it just ...

    What do you do different when you use you're burner to get a higher effeciency?If your bag
    cannot fit your pot inside you will suffer from lower efficiency. A smaller bag will restrict
    the amount of w...

    How do you measure the amount od LME/DME needed to bring the gravity up where it should be? Is
    there a rule of thumb for extract additions?I use one of the many free recipe calculators
    though and you ...
