  • Posted in thread: BIAB size question on 10-28-2011 at 05:58 PM
    I ran some numbers and here is what I got:If you wanted to brew 5.5 gallons of a 1.070 dubbel,
    you would require 385 gravity points. Assuming 70% efficiency (which is about what you would
    get with a B...

    Sessionable Belgians are some of my favorite beers. Here's what started out as a clone of
    Russian River's 'Redemption', but sort of evolved based on what was at my LHBS. Overall, this
    beer is good aft...

    I agree with above. I've done a few BIAB in a 7.5 gallon pot, and (especially with bigger
    beers) it's a bit tight even during the mash if you try to do it with the full pre-boil volume.
    That being sai...

    Every year my mom bakes cranberry bread for Thanksgiving, but I can't make it home for the
    holiday this year. I decided to brew a slice of home, and this is what I came up with. Sorry if
    the numbers (...

    So, for example, tonight I was completely out of homebrew (tragedy, I know) but I had some
    grain alcohol lying around and I decided to make a mixed drink. I took about 2 oz. of the grain
    alcohol and t...

    I haven't brewed that many batches, so I am hardly an expert, but I've cold crashed once and I
    hardly noticed a difference in the yeast cake. It was indeed a bit harder, but not by much. I'd
    rather sp...

    Thanks for all the help! Is 3 weeks total in the fermenter before I bottle enough time?Alot of
    guys will leave their brews in primary for at least a month. Personally, I'm not that patient,
    so I usual...

  • Posted in thread: cooling wort question on 10-27-2011 at 06:25 PM
    I don't want to carry 50 pounds of boiling wort to my bathtub, so I invested in an immersion
    chiller. To help keep the water going through the chiller cool, I fill a bucket with alot of
    ice, some salt...

    I've never done this at all. I put 5 gallons into my fermenter.Are you keeping all of your
    brews in the primary for a month? I would love to get more beer out of the fermenter if this is
    a viable solu...

    personally i think you're rushing the beer off the yeast too soon- you're not even letting any
    post fermentation conditioning process even occur.+1
