    More water, More Crush, those are your other two options. if you line your mashtun with a bag,
    you can crush pretty fine.I do think I may have some more room to crush a little finer. I
    hadn't done tha...

    I had not thought of this before. Recently, for most medium sized beers, I've been doing one
    batch sparge infusion (equal to what I need to hit my pre-boil volumes after the first
    runnings.) @poptarts...

    OK, so yes, the higher amount of grain is because I scaled the recipe up to 5.5 gallons. Here
    is my process:1. Mashed in with 18.75 pounds of grain and 6.75 gallons water2. Mashed for 60

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate you all helping me work through this. I'll post the specifics
    once I get to work and have my laptop. I'm pretty sure the difference in the grain is because I
    scaled up...

    I did not leave any second runnings behind. I usually mash in at 1.4 qts/lb of grain since I
    recirculate the mash with a pump. I then drain first runnings and do a single batch sparge. I
    stir the heck...

    Hi All. Forgive me if this has been asked before but I couldn't necessarily find what I was
    looking for with a search. Here's the situation: Last weekend I brewed Mr. Denny Conn's Bourbon
    Vanilla Port...

    Pappers,I actually set out to try and clone this beer a few years ago based on the information
    that was provided on Elysian's site. I've never actually tasted it side by side with the Dark
    O' The Moon...

    Hi All,I had seen some negative experiences regarding Barley Crusher's customer service, and I
    just wanted to add a recent experience. One of the set screws on my BC mill had the head break
    off. It se...

    I just hooked my brew stand up to natural gas and it runs three blichmann burners very well.
    You do need a hose with quick disconnect. I bought the 1/2 ID model here: it's more expensive,
    but it feel...
