  • Why does anyone start brewing? It's fun, duhh. I brew mostly partial mash. I tend towards traditional styles from the British Isles but am aiming to brew more frequently and branch out, perhaps go to grain brewing if my situation stabilizes.

    I can't remember if I am following the flawed logic or the other logic, but I taped the probe
    to the side of a carboy full of water with some styrofoam packing sheet taped over it, and I
    set up the fa...

    Thanks for the hints, folks. I have not started my fermentation yet (brew day will be this
    coming Saturday I hope) so I have time to experiment by taping the probe to the side of a
    carboy full of wate...

    I have a used chest freezer that I got for a fermentation chamber. For a while I had an
    inexpensive single-stage analog temp control/thermostat on it which would run it in cool mode
    only and that work...

    One thing worth reading is the countertop partial mashing article from BYO (link below). The
    author seems to have had success using the spigot on a cooler. I have been doing standard BIAB
    partial mash...

    Well nobody seems interested in this thread anymore. I think I will stick with the Nottingham
    this time around. Maybe try another yeast with the same recipe in a future batch.

    Thanks for the advice. I am basically following the "counter top partial mash" method
    (published 2006 in BYO). And even though technically there should be no problem mashing the
    wheat I decided agains...

    Planning my first all grain brew. It will be a 3 gal batch. There will be 1 lb of wheat malt
    and 3 lbs of barley malts, and 1lb of honey. I will do a single step infusion mash.Question 1:
    Do I need ri...

    I have been doing partial mash for a few batches now, just mashing in a paint bag in a big
    metal soup pot and batch sparging. I recently got a 2 gallon beverage cooler so I should be
    able to now mash ...

    Bottled last night, tastes awesome. The tartness has rounded out nicely into what I would
    describe as a notable but not overpowering (to my taste) British ale-type yeast ester palette
    that is well-bal...
