  • Posted in thread: Are stainless fermenters harder to keep cool? on 12-01-2015 at 05:45 PM
    Those sound like very valid reasons. I might switch from plastic to SS in the future for
    similar reasons. I don't understand the argument that cosmetic reasons preclude all others
    either. In fact, the...

    Ah come on now. I thought we'd already covered this. :)BIAB efficiency is the same or better as
    any other method of all grain brewing. Many folks, including myself, average 80-85% brew house

    If you have time I'd like to see pictures of how you set it up and use it with your equipment.
    I've never given these much thought until recently.

  • Posted in thread: Barley Crusher Maintenance ( second time in 110 brews ) on 11-30-2015 at 11:32 AM
    I'm fighting my BC. I had to clean it 4 times in maybe 7 brews. Last time I had to crush twice
    because no matter how clean it was it would not spin with the narrow gap I wanted. Would a MM
    be better? ...

  • Posted in thread: What grind size to use on my malt mill? on 11-30-2015 at 02:57 AM
    It makes sense. Does it help to condition the malt when doing BIAB?I wouldn't think so since
    the bag is the filter and you probably aren't doing a fly sparge. I think it would be counter
    productive fo...

    I'm a fan of simple vs re circulation. I feel that simply insulating the kettle will suffice to
    hold mash temps adequate to mash to a reasonable tolerance. If I were to recirculate I think I
    would pre...

    There's just not much propriety with ingredients anyways. I understand if you dont want to give
    out every detail, but what's the point of being so secretive? Ok your IPA is dry and citrusy,
    not exactl...

    We'll have to disagree about food. I don't think it's all that different. The reason good chefs
    don't care about telling you what's in their food is that they know it's all about technique
    and quality...

  • Posted in thread: First huge beer with biab - session notes on 11-25-2015 at 11:47 PM
    Decided to put my experience with the first huge beer and biab into a separate post so here
    goes.The recipe is American barley wine from Brewing Classic Styles. Roughly the grain bill is
    25.5 lbs and ...

    Thank you, yes I likely do have an inherent preference and bias for bags over baskets. I just
    thought it relevant with the thread that to maximize OG, the dead space outside a basket could
    be a factor...
