    Do 3 gallon brewers count here? lol... I considered 1 gallon, decided it was too little, 5
    gallons too much. I want a quick turnover so i can brew more often and try new things!I have
    come to the rath...

    I assume that's using the hydrometer in a bucket. I don't know how you would get it back out of
    a carboy.

    In our neck of the woods, a water softener is a must. For dark beers however, I bypass the
    softener, which means using cold water as all the water in the water heater has already been
    softened. Pils, ...

    I have my first lager in a secondary and my second in my fermentor. The question is, how would
    lagering in the secondary be different from letting them lager in the bottle, assuming that the
    time and ...

    I also do 2.5 gallon batches in a 5 gallon pot. I started out doing the full volume mash, but
    more recently have been holding back 1 gallon water. I don't do this for the purpose of a true
    sparge, but...

    I also use the oven method. I usually end up turning the oven back on for about a minute each
    time I stir the mash. The oven loses a lot of heat when the door is open fully for a minute
    while stirring...

  • Posted in thread: Does this BIAB recipe/procedure for ordinary bitter make sense? on 01-10-2013 at 08:30 PM
    Do you see an advantage in pouring the sparge water over the grain bag rather than just dunking
    the bag in the sparge water in the pot that was used to heat it. I guess it would be one more
    pot to was...

  • Posted in thread: All Grain After 1 Batch of Mr. Beer? on 12-14-2012 at 03:49 PM
    The 1 Gallon kits at Northern Brewer are Extract kit's with specialty grains that are steeped
    in hot water for a period of time (20 to 30 minutes I think) before the extract is added and
    the wort is b...

    So that batch is in the can. I thought since so many were willing to take the time to read and
    reply, that I would recap. Pretty much everything went as planned. I did the "All In" water
    with the reco...

    OK, spent an hour reading a bunch of other posts on BIAB Mash-out and it seemed to be the
    majority opinion, doesn't really matter. So let's flip to the other side of this question, full
    volume mash vs...
