    Got the kettle drilled and punched today and the hardware mostly installed. Not leak tested yet
    but my only worry is the quick connect onto the whirlpool weld-less bulkhead. The fitting
    bottoms out ag...

    What type of thermometer are you using to measure your mash temps. Have you calibrated
    it?Second, (sorry if I missed it in the thread) do you stir your mash? How often ?I have a
    Thermapen that I check...

    Thanks LarMoeCur.I realize unless the grain bill is the exact same, it's difficult to compare.
    And a lot of people in this thread are saying I'm mashing too high.But you're telling me I
    should be mash...

    For what it's worth, when I first started AG and mashing, I would need mash at say 152 like you
    do. But in getting there, my temp would climb climb climb and once I hit 152, even though the
    flame was ...

    I don't get the aversion to mashing lower. You have results that are not where you want them,
    you have an option to move your results in the direction you want, but you are hesitant why?
    There is noth...

    You could try lowering your mash temps a couple of degrees, and/or extending your mash time in
    order to get more fermentable wort. Your iodine test can show "completion" before your wort has
    reached i...

    Hi,I have an electric herms brewing system, basically a clone of Kal's electric brewery. I feel
    like my beers never quite reach the expected final gravity and I was wondering if anyone had
    any tips or...

  • Posted in thread: Help with Blichmann false bottom / Stuck recirculation / air in line on 05-19-2016 at 02:33 PM
    Is someone really suggesting that water can't pass through that false bottom - because there is
    air under it? :drunk:It doesn't stop water from passing through, it's just way slower than
    expected, and...

    That IS weird! I guess that huge 2.5 gallon air cushion under the FB is giving enough counter
    pressure to keep the water (and wort!) from flowing through. The very tight fit on the indented
    rim doesn'...

    2.5 gallons under the false bottom??? I would start rethinking things right there...But any air
    leak is going to stop the siphon effect...Why, what's wrong with 2.5 gallons under the FB? This
    is my ke...
