  • Posted in thread: smoked hops... on 07-06-2015 at 02:14 PM
    Think about how much grain (10+ lbs) you use in a batch compared to hops (a few ounces). IMO
    the contribution will likely be minimal considering the relatively small amount of hops that
    are used in a ...

  • Posted in thread: BEST false bottom... on 04-23-2015 at 01:50 PM
    It pains me to say it, but the Blichmann is best I've every used. Coughing up the dough for a
    Boilermaker really sucks, but with HERMS, can't afford a stuck mash and that's what I was
    getting with var...

  • Posted in thread: Automated volume sensing idea/help on 04-23-2015 at 01:16 PM
    Was looking at the MS5805 as way to measure volume. Datasheet- sure of the sensitivity yet,
    but I was thinking of attaching via some sort of tubing to my existing sight gauge tube and
    connecting it v...

  • Posted in thread: How cheaply could you build a RIMS MLT? on 04-21-2015 at 02:38 PM
    Well, I don't quite think I can manage it for $80. I could have if I half-assed the electrical,
    but I want this thing to be safe, so that added a bit on there. It'll still come in under $100.
    I just h...

    Absolutely, poor business practices. Had I have been in that position, I would have eaten the
    cost of the newer kegs without question.Really poorly handled all around.

  • Posted in thread: Failure of Brewha BIAC on 04-18-2015 at 01:50 PM
    ...a lot of his marketing copy on the website is directed towards nanos and small brewpubs,
    urging them to buy multiple BIAC units to run a small brewery. Say what now?

  • Posted in thread: Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen = WOW on 04-18-2015 at 01:54 AM
    If they have the Schlenkerla Eiche (oak), try that one. It's a smoke-bomb, but very tasty. I
    might have to learn to smoke my own malts and make some oak-smoked.I had that last year.
    Amazing. The maerz...

    It's hard to appreciate how small the little tan pumps are until you see one. It's like a cute
    little baby pump. :)

    I've used ~80% in my classic rauchs. That first was with fresh Best Malz rauch (full sack,
    straight from NCMS). It was in the ball park of Schlenkerla but not quite there. I believe
    Schlenkerla's gris...
