I'm hoping this improves with age...it's not matching my expectations on the flavor I imagined!
Very cloudy and tart even with a crash cool. If I do this again I'll go with a darker version
and try a ...

Hi out there, I just wanted to poll the forum on something. I have a final project due in a few
weeks for a masters-level systems engineering course in modeling and simulation and I'd love to
Posted in thread: Bottling 1 gallon batches on 06-23-2012 at 06:46 PM
I do this all the time -- I converted a small drink cooler to a mini bottling bucket by
removing the valve and installing a bottling bucket type valve (I had to enlarge the hole
somewhat). I bottle ex...

I just wanted to check other people's experiences -- about a year ago I purchased most of a

I usually do a single sparge but if I were doing a no sparge three gallon batch I know I would
work backwards from the final volume. For my system in dry Arizona, I need 4.5gal pre-boil. I

I do three gallon batches all the time. I take a 5gal recipe and multiply each ingredient by
3/5 and mash/sparge as normal calculating my strike, sparge and boil vol as necessary.

That looks great. I really like the shelf design. Not sure if I just missed it but did you
secure the fridge to the dolly or just let gravity do the job?I know a lot of people do the
probe in water th...

I think those numbers are reasonable. I don't know where you're located but relative humidity
of the environment will play a role in your evaporation rate as well. I'm in southern AZ and I
