    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
    bigger vessels...

    I thought if give it a go (I use iodiphor). It foamed like a m-fckr. What's the deal!? It was
    impossible to get out of my keg.

    I get huge amounts of break, and leave too much wort behind. I use a converted Sankey keg as a
    boil kettle, with weld-less fittings (fitted reasonably high as they don't sit we'll on the
    curved part o...

    They work great, no probs. I also have some 'stealth stout' in them right now. Keep them out of
    the light though.

    What's the campden tablet for, and how are you using it exactly?

  • Posted in thread: Mash consistency on 04-14-2012 at 08:45 PM
    Thanks for all the ideas. So if the mash thickness doesn't affect the conversion all that much,
    and a thinner mash is filling up the kettle to quick, perhaps I should mash thicker, and sparge
    bigger f...

    John Palmer specifies 2 quarts water per pound of grain, for a basic mash. This seems very
    thin. I've been having problems with efficiency, perhaps partly because I must sparge with less
    water, or my ...

    I might try this recipe, sounds great! Is the wheat malted?

  • Posted in thread: Help - Missed My OG by a mile on 04-13-2012 at 07:22 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
    1060, though my l...
