    As the others said, once you hit terminal gravity, give it 2-3 days, then if you have the
    ability to cold crash bring the temp. down for another 2 days, and then keg

    Make sure your False bottom fits fairly tight. Whenever you mash in or stir, make sure the pump
    is off, or you'll pull draff into/under the bottom.Also wait 10 minutes after mash in to run
    the pump to...

    Use an electronic flowmeter like THIS You can also use it for metering the wort going into the
    fermenter, while using an inline aerator.

    I have a couple and really like them alot, highly recommended!. They also sell a sous vide
    needle probe which is waterproof and I just throw it in the mash.

    Are you letting it bloom first? Put the gelatin in warm water for 20 minutes to rehydrate
    before you heat it.

    I found the best way to place magnets is to stick them to the stir barso they'll settle where
    they want to be, then stick them to the washer.

    I can't believe this stuff hasn't caught on for homebrewing. We use a 3/4'', 25' coil of it for
    a herms coil in our 1 BBL brewery (3- 55 gallon stainless drums). We also just bought a 55
    gallon plasti...

    You're way overthinking it. I had a system with 2 gallons under the bottom.What I did was, fill
    the MLT with water to the false bottom. Then figure 1.25 qts per lb for mash water on top. If
    ya look at...

  • Posted in thread: Pre Boil and Original Gravity are the same!! Why? on 12-31-2016 at 01:03 PM
