So I got my head around RIMS and HERMS, even though I don't like the acronyms as they aren't
accurate descriptions... and now I'm learning about the Blichman Tower of Power. Where does
that fit in, an...

Love the idea of getting one of these. I'm curious how big of a system these can handle, for
example, a 1 or even 3 bbl commercial micro system? Assuming appropriate burner size for the

John Palmer specifies 2 quarts water per pound of grain, for a basic mash. This seems very

Posted in thread: Help - Missed My OG by a mile on 04-13-2012 at 08:22 PM
I've also been missing my target gravity by a mile. I just tried to make a strong IPA using
13lbs Pale Malt and 2lbs Pale Wheat Malt, and 1.5lbs crystal and 0.5 corn sugar. My OG was
