    I've been using no chill for the past year. It definitely works for me! I just made a cream ale
    and used 1.5 pounds of honey in it. I added the honey to my bucket and racked the hot wort onto
    it to di...

    I set up my HLT the night before. About 4.5 hours from lighting the HLT to cleaning BK, with 1
    hour mash and boil.BYO has an article about speeding up the brew day. Things like milling your

  • Posted in thread: I am now hooked on batch sparging on 03-18-2012 at 05:23 AM
    Batch sparging is what got me back into brewing after a 5 year hiatus. So much easier and more
    RDWHAB. I haven't tried wet milling yet, that will be the next batch :)

    Well done with the wing capper! I got rid of mine for a bench capper when it started eating
    bottles. Great to have a helper, especially Dad!

    I used to use a turkey baster. Then SWMBO took it to use on a turkey :confused:. I'm probably
    going to replace it with a wine thief.

  • Posted in thread: Analysis Requested on My First All Grain Brew Procedure on 03-15-2012 at 04:37 AM
    It looks to me like you are doing a batch sparge. After you vorlauf, you want to open the valve
    all the way and drain as fast as possible. It also read to me like you added sparge water,
    stirred, vorl...
