I've been using a BCS Controlled 2 vessel 240V RIMs system (MLT and BK) for the last year. RIMs
let me hit my strike temp dead on every time. Efficiency is much greater. Step mashes are a
piece of cak...
Posted in thread: Agave Wine recipe?? on 08-19-2012 at 05:40 PM
I'd recommend treating agave wine like mead with staggered nutrient additions. Also,
8lbs/gallon is not correct. Water is 8lbs/gallon .. and Honey is 12lbs/gallon. I would suspect
that agave is atleas...

I can't believe your LHBS won't crush grains. Who cares the amount as long as you buy them from

with lacto and...

Homebrewtastic: Was there any funk at all in that beer? Its really hard for me to believe there

half just ...

Posted in thread: Need Help adding Recirculation Port to Sanke Keg on 06-21-2012 at 03:28 AM
HiUnless you like a problem, the recirculation rate should be pretty low. Not quite soda straw
capacity, but pretty low. There are *lots* of other options.BobSorry, I have to disagree with
