    when using 3711 you do have to take into account that it will always finish low. Brew software
    never predicts a low enough FG.No kidding on the power of 3711. Just bottled a saison yesterday
    that had ...

  • Posted in thread: Stains on BIAB sack. Ok to use? on 09-03-2013 at 06:14 PM
    I would not put a bag in the washing machine...rinse w hot water and let dry. Maybe an oxiclean
    soak if you let it get rancid...a well used bag will take on a tan patina, IMHO that's fine, no
    need to ...

    I do 5 gal BIAB batches, and after mash I just lift my most excellent wilserbrewer bag, let it
    drain for a few minutes before moving to another kettle with an inverted colander on the
    bottom.I let the...

  • Posted in thread: What am I missing with BIAB? on 08-29-2013 at 05:24 PM
    I went from a year or so of extract to BIAB - currently on my 7th BIAB batch - and while I feel
    I'm missing out on some of the traditional elements/components of AG brewing I have to admit I
    enjoy the...

    The drill locks up or the barley crusher?With the grain in the hopper and using the drill it
    will only go one direction. The drill sounds like it is locking up, though it works fine it
    going the other...

    I have a new 7lb Barley Crusher I have started using on my BIAB batches to get a finer crush.I
    use a drill to grind, but it only seems to want to turn one way. With grain in the hopper it
    turns freely...

    Any tips on finding these now? It looks like HD has stopped selling them. Is there a suitable
    replacement?Try Craigslist. That's where I got mine.

  • Posted in thread: BIAB Brewing (with pics) on 07-02-2013 at 01:56 PM
    My water temperature didn't change much after adding grains so I started mashing at 158. I just
    finished my 4th BIAB this past weekend, and while I hit a 74% efficiency (thank you,
    BarleyCrusher) I st...

  • Posted in thread: BIAB mash temp control on 05-23-2013 at 01:49 PM
    16? That seems excessive for sure. Easy enough solution: lower strike temperature.I heat my
    strike water up 8 degrees over my target mash temp and am usually just a little hot. Try going
    down to 10 an...
