What's the recipe, did you hit your mash temps? What was the OG? How did you oxygenate? What
temp did you ferment at?Perhaps there's no more fermentable sugars. No sense in pitching more
yeast if ther...

Thanks for the recipes and encouragement. It seems that there's not an issue with draining the
bag with pumpkin getting 'stuck' via BIAB. How long did you guys let these mellow before
serving? I bottl...
Posted in thread: Hit pre-boil gravity but OG too low on 08-01-2013 at 10:53 PM
Can you just keep boiling until you would hit your gravity? I hate doing it because less than 5
gallons go's into the fermentor and then I have less brew at the end. But if tour consistent in

I continue to have a problem with my BIAB process where my OG is coming out too low. I have
been formulating my recipes with BeerSmith, and trying to hit my numbers. Last brew I hit my
Posted in thread: BIAB sediment after boil on 07-24-2013 at 02:24 PM
After cooling my wort, I use a sanitized spoon to whirlpool the wort by stirring it rapidly
(but not splashing) for a minute or so. Let it sit covered for about a half hour, and most of
the sediment w...

my welding supply shop told me that if I ever brew a "dark" beer like a stout, I will need beer
gas, because CO2 can't push a thick beer through the faucet...However, when I had to come back
3 times i...

Yeah I knew as soon as he told me about putting ice in his beer that I had no reason to listen
