    ABOUT ME

  • A second foray into the brewing scene. Loving it all so far. rnrnI picked up the hobby again in 2008. I've tried it all - Mash in an igloo cooler, gravity and pumped, fly-sparge, batch sparge, and BIAB. Currently doing recirculating BIAB on an hybrid propane/electric system with temp control. Been turning out amazing low and mid-strenght beers and plan to continue doing so. I am focusing down on the British Bitter and Mild styles of beer after finding ECY18 - the East Coast Yeast British Mild strain. Love it! 5 gallon batches and kegging everything!rnrnI'm up to over 80 5-gallon brew-days now. rnrnNext steps forward include:moving from wood to metal for my BIAB stand, adding an integrated bag-hanger, and running my kegorator lines up to the kitchen for easier access.

  • Posted in thread: March Pump Screw Question on 11-02-2016 at 10:35 PM
    Can locks are in use with the pump. But the pump is mounted in a hard to reach area and I'm
    loathe to move it.

  • Posted in thread: March Pump Screw Question on 11-02-2016 at 12:30 PM
    Thanks guys! If it were simple to store the pump aside from the rig, I would. But that would
    require some thought and tool time. I'd rather spend it turning a few screws and making beer.
    Thanks for th...

    Quick question: What is the thread pitch on the #8 1-1/4 inch round head screws that hold the
    pump head to the rest of the March 815 pump?Reason: I want to start storing my brewing hardware
    outside. B...

    I buy golden light in bulk and brew everything ....When you buy in bulk, do you buy DME or LME?

    The Williams brewing maltextracts are very, very good. Once a year Williams discounts their
    malt for a few days. Their Belgian pale ale, English brown, and American red extracts are very
    good and make...

    I think you'll be fine but would move all the citra to the 1 minute mark. I think it will be
    OK, but worst case scenario you've brewed yourself a nice session IPA. Brew on!

  • Posted in thread: Thinking of Doing a 20 Minute Blonde on 08-25-2016 at 08:54 PM
    I do these short boil extract brews often. It looks fine to me. You plan to chill it pretty
    quickly with an IC or a counterflow chiller, right?

  • Posted in thread: Ping-Pong ball dry hop in keg? on 08-24-2016 at 05:48 PM
    I am also a fan of the unwaxed floss and keg lube system. Have been using it for a few years
    with no lost CO2. I also never retrieve dry hops hanging within a full keg. The way to
    effortlessly remove ...

  • Posted in thread: How to calculate water amounts for BIAB... Confused as hell on 08-21-2016 at 12:24 PM
    My absorption ratio is generally 0.6 - 0.75 depending on grain bill. I do a full volume mash
    and usually start with 7 - 8 gallons depending on how much grain I use.
