  • Posted in thread: Question about full volume mash BIAB on 01-05-2016 at 12:44 AM
    I've used Beersmith for over 6 years while doing 3V brewing but had some trouble when setting
    it up for BIAB. I use to check my numbers and it has been very reliable so far (in the 20+
    BIAB batches ...

    I recirculate as long as I can and stop when it starts to cavitate. I will turn the pump back
    on every so often to move wort through the lines.I also run through the RIMS while cooling
    (when I use my ...

    I've only recirculated outside the bag when I brewed a barley wine and had issues with the flow
    rate through the bag being too slow and starving the pump. Not that this is scientifically
    proven by any...

    Sorry for delay. I was trying to figure out how to display a table but the best I could come
    with is to do a quick screenshot of a spreadsheet.These are some of the beers I have been
    charting. My RIS ...

    This thread has gotten a little off-topic but I thought I'd chime in again as well.Since I
    started BIAB with my RIMS tube I have been taking readings during my mash. I take readings with
    my refractome...

    I've had the same problem. Too much grain slows the draining and starves the pump. I throttle
    back the pump and recirculate outside the bag when I have a large grain bill. I figure that the
    thermal ma...

    I've never had a problem with the seal on carboys. And, I've used them when I ferment in sankey
    kegs. With enough coaxing, you can fit them over the coupler stem.I use co2 to push the beer
    out of the ...

    I've brewed this 3 times since April. Served it at beer fest with my homebrew club: one of the
    first kegs to kick! Served it at a wedding this past weekend: first keg to kick! The remaining
    keg in my ...
