  • Posted in thread: Wilser BIAB vs The Brew Bag? on 02-07-2016 at 06:20 PM
    I've been very happy with my wilser bags. I got the grand slam package, the hop bags, and
    pulley are awesome as well. I use the hop bags for small batches for starters, and for making
    cold brew coffee...

    Woodland Brewing Research has done some studies on yeast viability over time and yeast growth
    in starters. I find that these studies come to different conclusions than what is reported by
    Brewers frie...

    What I would do? 250mL starter at 1.020. Shake the living crap out of it initially, then every
    once in awhile to degas. Give it 3 days. Then I would cold crash for 24 hours decant, and top
    off to what...

    Pitched 570 into like 0.85 gallons, somewhere around 1.068 (didn't measure OG). Should end up
    around 9% if it ferments out to 1.000. Added DAP and Ferm O according to double TOSNA. C02
    started being p...

    What calculator are you using. Please provide recipe and all measurements you took. Looks like
    you're doing no sparge?If you want to calculate efficiency, you need three things. Without at
    least gravi...

    Only time I've seen something like that was in a pressurized container. If there was an airlock
    then it shouldn't have been the case.

    This threads over 3 years old...I did it last month though, worked out pretty well for some
    fast force carbonating when the pipeline falls apart but I prefer sugar priming when available.

    I would chill them down slow, let the yeast build up Trehalose stores. Helps them weather the
    proverbal coming storm. I placed them in a thermos in the freezer. Should occur slowly.

    Just set up 5 frozen tubes of 510, and 570. Mixed up two nights ago, and am ready to freeze
    them. Is the current mindset to freeze quickly, freeze slowly, or don't worry about it?

    I use a swivel hook designed for hanging plants. The hook part is removable - just leaves an
    inconspicuous flat metal disk on the ceiling.That's exactly what I've been thinking about, buy

Wasn't sure where to post this - maybe this will do the trick. New brewer here with a few successful extract batches to my credit. Planning on my first BIAG session this weekend and wanted to thank you for your kick ass calculator! I played around with others out there, but none made as much intuitive sense as the Priceless one has. I am really hoping to use the heck out of it in the coming year as I refine my process.

Once again, sincere thanks for your efforts!
