  • 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.

    Thanks folks.I know I need to get into the water software to elevate my brewing from using
    "good enough" water to using "great" water but have been procrastinating it which has worked
    out in the past ...

    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...

    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

    Thanks for the advice. I am basically following the "counter top partial mash" method

    wheat I decided agains...

    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
