    Has anyone had to replace the gasket on one of these? Mine has a corner that won't seal and the
    frame of the door is still square so I know it isn't that. A quick Google search hasn't
    returned anythin...

    The glass door is easily removed, I've done it a few times. I'm at work so I'm not looking at
    mine right now, but most likely the bolts at the top have loosened a bit, the door rests on a
    pin on the b...

    I have a used Vissani that I use with a temp controller, but the door has developed a slight
    gap at the top when closed.I know this is probably impossible to diagnose this way, but I was
    wondering wha...

    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
