    Yooper, I think you're just going to have to WAG and squeeze the semi dry hops to decide how
    much moisture they have. 6:1 ratio for fresh to dry hop weight, right? So, maybe 3:1 to guess
    for half-drie...

    Lots of us have been doing this for a while. For a commercial brewer it yields a sour beer
    quickly without much contamination risk.

    Are you squeezing the bag when done with the batch sparge? That is part of what gives BIABers
    high efficiency, along with a sparge. You can also tighten the gap on your mill to increase
    efficiency wit...

  • Posted in thread: Aeration with dry yeast on 08-25-2015 at 03:37 AM
    The yeast manufacturer already aerated the slurry, already built up the cell count, already
    performed a lag phase before dehydrating the yeast for sale to you. If yeasts have a quorum in
    a culture, th...

    Well, I hope it was a 10 gallon batch with that much grain.Are you sure about your mash
    temperature? I would expect conversion to be complete or near complete by 45 minutes, so the
    overheating wouldn'...

    Take another gravity reading in 3-4 days and let us know if it is the same. If so, it is done.
    You could also easily just wait until 2-3 weeks after pitch before dryhopping to be sure
    fermentation is ...

    1.014 as a FG might be the reason. That isn't a very dry finishing beer. Perhaps you are
    perceiving that as the syrupy/sweet finish you are talking about, particularly if you have low

  • Posted in thread: Infection or Overcarbed or Other? on 08-15-2015 at 03:41 PM
    I have the exact same problems going on, and use pretty much the exact same sanitation
    practices as you do. Same results -- medium gushers, beer doesn't taste bad, just too much foam
    -- especially on ...
