    I'm slowly putting together my E-BIAB system now and had a few ideas about keeping my bag off
    the elements. Your pot and false bottom is a very nice simple solution!Does the false bottom
    clog at all w...

    Even though my tap water is pretty decent, I use a carbon block filter to get rid of chlorine
    and campden tablets to get rid of chloromines. I then adjust my water profile with brewing
    salts to get a ...

    6-row was the standard for most American beers prior to Prohibition from what I understand. It
    also is on par with standard American 2-row but still retains the larger grain husk. I think
    that's where...

    Looks pretty good to me. The 6 row will help clear up the cloudiness from the flaked corn. Have
    you thought of plugging in a Kolsch yeast for this?There's a few good New Glarus Spotted Cow
    recipes out...

    Just finished brewing a Tripel with a 17# grain bill. Mash efficiency was 79%. It took some
    effort to keep the mash at temp while brewing outside today. I'll share the brewsmith file as
    soon as I figu...

    I talked with my guy at the LHBS the other day and mentioned BIAB. I asked him about efficiency
    and he respond with 45 percent. I was a bit taken back by this, and I know he has brewed more
    beer then ...

    ...As for trub I don't usually worry about it, let it all go into the fermenter. A couple of
    times I cleaned my grain bag after the mash, and put it into my fermenter. Transferred the wort
    into the fe...

    I kegged this yesterday at 1.014 and will let it sit for awhile under CO2 (3+ weeks). I was
    surprised at the clarity which might suggest that the 6 row had something to do with it. Until
    then I have a...
