  • Posted in thread: BIAB: Is mash water volume important? on 01-13-2017 at 08:22 PM
    My results have conclusively shown that a thinner mash is better for mash efficiency. However,
    you can opt for a thicker mash and then sparge which may result in an ever higher efficiency.

    Great advice. I'm definitely going to pick up the cubes. I feel like it's not worth chancing
    the corn sugar mixture that comes in the kits. I just brewed my first batch and I'm waiting for
    it to carbo...

  • Posted in thread: 2 week cold crash? on 01-13-2017 at 06:31 PM
    I cold crashed a DIPA for 10 days (normally I shoot for 3-4 days) with gelatin and it is having
    a very hard time carbonating in the bottles. It's getting there, but it's been 5 weeks and it's
    maybe 30...

    I've use the Domino cubes on 4 batches now and so far so good! 1 per 12oz, 2 per 22oz bottle.
    Some bottles have a narrower opening than others and need a little push to go in. Some fall
    right in.

    Looks safe to me! If you give the carboy gentle swirl a lot of that crud will sink to the

    I've used both corn sugar and table/cane sugar (in cube form). Both seem to work just as well.
    I only use the sugar cubes when bottling straight from the fermenter. Otherwise I use the
    bottling bucket...

    Quite a few of the BIAB folk are turning their grains into essentially flour with super tight
    mills or even using a blender or food processor. If tannin extraction was an issue I don't
    think this woul...

  • Posted in thread: Brulosophy Grain Crush Comparison on 01-10-2017 at 06:35 PM
    It was a course crush vs fine crush but regardless I'm sure the reason for the test was because
    there are so many threads that mention not hitting there OG and the first comment is always
    your crush i...

    Wasn't this just a test for grain crash and not mash time? I thought he stated he did a 60
    minute mash because that what most people do. All things being equal with the amount of grain
    and heat would ...

  • Posted in thread: What do you use when you squeeze BIAB? on 01-10-2017 at 06:07 PM
    I use gloves and my hands and arms. I can get a few good squeezes before taking a break to let
    the burns cool down.I tried using a 15" colander that sits on top of the kettle, but the bag
    plugs the ho...
