  • Started with a Mr. Beer kit. After the second brew, I made a change to the third kit. After that, I designed my own recipes. Did three partial mashes, then graduated to all-grain BIAB. I do 2.5 to 3 gallon batches because I enjoy brewing more often and really don't drink more than one beer a day. I enjoy the variety available and being able to pair up the night's drink with the meal.

    Just finished a 10 liter batch of my Big Red Doe IPA. Second time brewing it, making just a
    small change in the dry hopping.

  • Posted in thread: calculating FWH IBU on 11-25-2015 at 05:29 PM
    When I do a FWH in BeerSmith, I enter the time as the time of the boil. Yes, the hops sit in
    hot wort while being heated to boiling, but I find that the impact of FWH additions is a
    smoother, less har...

    I plan on boiling to 11 liters and transferring 10 liters to the fermentor. Flock the proteins
    with a little Irish Moss and most of what transfers is very clear.

    When making substitutions of the same hop with different AA%, I substitute each hop addition
    based upon adding an equivalent amount of AAs. For instance when substituting 20 grams of 10%
    AA hops at a ...

    I use MO as the base malt for all my English, Scottish, and Irish styles and a rare few
    American styles. I use mostly 2-row pale malt for most of the American styles. For the most
    part, I have not par...

  • Posted in thread: BIAB Sparging Techniques on 11-11-2015 at 03:29 PM
    With an additional 4-gal kettle, you are in fine shape to do a BIAB with a batch sparge. I
    would recommend calculating the water volume you need, subtracting the amount for grain
    absorption and then d...
