    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: 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.

    The final thing I do is force tap water through the pump at high velocity.Quick questions: Do
    you run the pump while you rush tap water through the lines? And, I assume you are just using
    tap water at...

    So I've been using a recirculating BIAB for a few years now with a march pump. My normal
    process is to flush the lines with warm, oxyclean-free water after each batch. I run the soapy
    water using the ...

    I enjoy Nosferatu from GLBC as well. Gordon Strong featured a clone recipe for Nosferatu in the
    Feb or April 2016 edition of BYO as part of the style article on American Strong Ale. I am
    going to do G...

    The clone of Firestone Walker's 805 published about 6-10 months ago in BYO is an excellent
    place to start brewing a light, crisp ale. I've done it and variants a few times. Its a solid
    platform from w...

    Duff's first book was really good. An eye-opener for sure about how G'N'R ascended and then
    fell apart. His second book looks interesting too. I'm sure its a good read about fatherhood.

    Going totally off topic here, but I made Giada's Bellini Bar drink recipe for Mother's day. The
    moms loved it and it was easy to make. Recipe here:
