  • 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.

    If you have the specs for the yeast from the manufacturer, you can enter it into BeerSmith

    The main reasons were two-fold:1) Give me more time to adequately research, read, learn, check
    forums like this out and hear what everyone has to say. And make sure all my decisions are

    Ok, just got on for the first time today (since I made my last reply), so I'm going to have to
    read through everyone's responses (thanks everyone!), but just throwing this out there:If

  • Posted in thread: Why FWH? on 10-14-2016 at 06:54 PM
    In my experience, FWH additions give more hop flavor and a less harsh bitterness than 60 minute
    boil additions of the same recipe. I like to do FWH additions for heavily hopped recipes where
    I want to...

    I make my own. It's not really all that hard and probably costs less than half of what they're
    charging. Plus it's fun! Though if you don't want to bother that's probably a decent
    price.Based upon the...

    Remember that the calculation for IBU is based upon a model which does not account for
    everyone's individual process. If you take a flame out addition (0 minute boil add) the
    software assumes you are ...

    Wait, are you saying that you can't adjust your grain absorption rate in BeerSmith unless you
    select BIAB? I'm not a user of the software.If true, I just learned another reason why I'm glad
    I went a d...

    If you want to set it up for a sparge, uncheck the BIAB box in your mash profile and set it up
    as a standard single infusion with batch sparge. As soon as you are not doing a full volume
    BIAB, your pr...
