    Sorry if this is a repeated message just have a few seconds and wanted to make sure you got
    this info. Leaving bleach in a glass container is a bad idea. Bleach can slowly dissolve glass.
    Not sure if ...

    wort chillers are nice not required. i have brewed dozens of successful batches cooling the
    kettle in the tub or sink. i even left one ill timed batch overnight before pitching. never had
    an issue.

    Splitting the 5 gallon mash also makes sure that conditions are as similar as possible for
    comparison on hop character. No reason why you can't also just split your yeast starter into 5
    so the only di...

  • Posted in thread: All grain with partial boil possible? on 05-30-2013 at 05:16 PM
    When I started BIAB I was using an under sized pot and batch boiled my wort. There is a term

    some incredible...

    search on t...

    I have made bread a few times but felt like it was more effort that it was worth. All goes to
    the garden now.

    I brewed a SMaSH that turned out to be a real winner. Just Canadian 2-row and Perle. Easy peasy
    punch and pie.

    I went for a slightly more ghetto version and just put an old winter coat around my pot while
    mashing. Easy enough to get on and off by zipping and unzipping. Less than 1 degree change now
    over the ho...

  • Posted in thread: Extremely Low OG. What happened? (AG) on 04-30-2013 at 12:48 PM
    My vote without further info would be for a bad crush. On one of my recent grain brews I had
    ordered my grains milled and they came to me un-milled. I spent a few hours on my knees with a
    rolling pin ...
