In fact you might consider making no adjustments to your water, and take some notes as to how
the beer tastes with just RO water. Next batch, make an adjustment and compare. This 'mistake'
is an oppor...

The thing that should insult most people here and has been hinted at is this: the point of the
commercial is the aggressive celebration of mediocrity. It follows the trend of treating the
mediocre as ...
Posted in thread: Results from BIAB Methods on 01-28-2015 at 05:44 PM
Recently made the switch to the BIAB method. I have done 3 brews and did each one with some
variation in the method to see for myself the outcome. Maybe others getting started in this
method will find...

Sounds about what I do, though did you cold crash or anything? I don't cold crash. From your
description, my 'very clear' is perhaps a little clearer than your 'fairly clear.' I can

Just out of curiosity how do you get it to clear? Honestly, nothing special - this last time I

beer (or brew dark enough you couldn't tell :cross: )This is a myth. I brew BIAB & no-chill,
and my beer co...

You might consider simplifying your grain bill. I make one that is (roughly) the below, and it
works very, very well:85% pale malt10% C605% ChocolateI try to keep things as simple as
Posted in thread: Time needed for Starch and Sugar Conversion in the Mash on 09-26-2014 at 08:32 PM
Haven't read the papers but taking this at face value it means just what it says. If you mash 1
kg of grain with 2 L of water you would have 1 kg/ 2L or 50% w/v. Seemingly, at first, a
strange way to ...

I'm curious about that, too. They show it in Table II as "wt grist as % vol mash liquor." But
