  • My homebrew career started when I was stationed at Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage Alaska in the mid 90's. I have taken several breaks from brewing but I got the bug again this year. Instead of continuing on as an extract brewer I jumped into all grain and I have brewed 8 batches since April this year. rnrnEquipment wise I have nothing fancy. I use 22 and 8 gallon kettles, 54 quart cooler with CPVC manifold and BeerSmith (yes I consider it a tool/equipment). I tried fly sparging but since my kettles don't have valves I soon realized that wasn't going to work. I switched to batch sparging and that has been a life saver. After some research and trail & error I think I have a good plan of attack to help maintain a consistent efficiency. I will know in a few more batches.rnrnHappy brewing to you all.

    A piece of aluminum foil should work as well. Might not need to but you could poke a few tiny
    holes in it to help the CO2 escape.:mug:

    I would like to know this as well. :mug:Can pH be used as a guide, or is this strictly a tongue

    Nice. It looks like I've been underpitching a little on most of my meads. I might need to bump
    it up a little.:mug:Easier calculation form:

    I would cover SNA. I think that has helped my meads tremendously. If you have time maybe
    discuss SNA vs TOSNA. I need to research that better myself. I just did my first batch using
    TOSNA so I guess w...

    I think you'll be happier with a larger container. I use a 18 gln (I think) rubbermaid tote. I
    put in as much water as I can until the carboy thinks about floating and then rotate frozen
    water bottles...
