I brewed this up on 03/14/15. I use BIAB and the mash was still thick as oatmeal. I calculated
at 55% efficiency but hit about 49.2%. pH was low at 5.1. OG came in at 1.118. I fermented at
65°F for 3-...

Like I said, I have a hop spider (exactly like Gavin's) and it's worked fine. But I'm planning
to really up the ante on my next 11gal batch IPA and the hop spider isn't going to be able to
hold all th...

I bought the Brew Bag with that intention. I didn't go with it on its first brew because it

fermentation. My n...

My next brew day I plan to do FWH and postboil only. Postboil I will reduce the BK temp to
180F, add the hops, cover it, and let stand 20 min, and then run through chiller to fermentor.
I just use the...

I don't want to recirc. I want to hit the hopback, cool rapidly in a closed system without
losing any aromatics to the atmosphere, and then hit the fermentor. First time I've heard of a

Depending on how every thing is setup the Hopback would connect directly to the ball valve of
your pump_ballValve output.This is my

OK, the CFC has a 3/8" copper tube. Everything to this point has been 1/2". Am I going to
experience any problems? Seems 3/8" would cool faster than a 1/2". But I'm guessing I need 3/8"
