Posted in thread: Newbie needs help with first All-grain BIAB Partial mash on 07-02-2015 at 01:29 PM
That's not bad for your first attempt! Things to work on: 1) holding temperature as precisely
as you can. Mashing is a lot more sensitive than steeping speciality grains. Make sure you have
a good the...

My only *wishlist* item is to have the mobile version synced to the desktop. That would be so

This is why I stopped using US-05/Chico strains. I started tasting that fermented orange flavor
in almost everything I brewed with it. Got to where I just couldn't stand it and dumped a

Sounds like he's doing extract. I wonder about smoking the LME in a shallow stainless tray? I
have a friend who smokes cream that way. Another reason to consider that -- won't smoking 5
