  • Posted in thread: mash volume - how thin is too thin? on 12-03-2014 at 02:54 AM
    With my limited experience (2 +\- years all grain), everything I've read seems to suggest that
    2 qts/pound was the upper limit. I'm not too familiar with BIAB techniques, but if your mash
    gets too thi...

  • Posted in thread: Using DME instead of LME on 12-03-2014 at 02:45 AM
    I would agree with GenIke. You do want some extract in there for the duration of the boil Nd to
    help with the utilization of the hops (utilization actually increases with some extract, as
    opposed to j...

    Thanks again all, with special thanks to Yooper and Chickypad. I think I was needlessly
    complicating things/over thinking and that is largely to blame for all the inconsistencies. I
    have had some trou...

    Thanks Priceless-I probably should start using a calculator for it, especially since I've been
    having so much trouble. I didn't think there would be too much of a difference in absorption
    rates, or at...

    So I've been brewing all grain for about two years now and have nine batches under my belt with
    my current system. My beers always turn out pretty well, but I'm consistently missing my
    targets for my ...

  • Posted in thread: In pursuit of sweet low attenuation wort on 10-25-2014 at 04:50 PM
    I had the same thought as Bobby M. I admittedly don't have much experience with brewing sour
    beers, but my understanding has also always been that the bacteria that sour beer are able to
    ferment the s...

  • Posted in thread: Two questions about wheat beer on 10-25-2014 at 04:30 PM
    This might be a stupid question, but when you zested the orange did you include any of the
    white, pithy part of the peel or were you able to get just the thin, orange outer part? I only
    ask because a ...

  • Posted in thread: Bull shoots vs. regular growth on 05-11-2014 at 01:43 AM
    I have two Nugget, two Willamette, two Sunbeam and one Chinook. They are growing like crazy,
    but I've been thinning them out and trying to pick the best bines to keep. I'll try to get
    pictures up soon...

  • Posted in thread: Adding first can of extract on 05-08-2014 at 02:37 AM
    I don't know if it really matters, but I always wait until I get a good rolling boil before
    adding the malt extract. My only thought is that by getting the water up to a boil first, the
    higher temp wi...
