Posted in thread: Hefeweizen aging on 11-28-2013 at 09:22 PM
I have brewed ~ a dozen Heffeweizens, and I have sampled each after 7-10 days in bottle, and
all have been good, & adequately carbed. I haven't the patience to wait 3+ weeks, and this
style lends itse...

Posted in thread: How to improve my efficiency on 11-15-2013 at 05:50 PM
I have been double milling my grains (Barley Crusher @.039), and I have TONS of trub. I do a
lot of wheat beers, which I know can contribute to this, but I had same issue with a pale ale.

I smacked my Wyeast 3068 before I checked my grain on hand, and I found out I only have 3

I split the grain bill in to two bags to save on my arms/back, and "tea bag dunk" and stir a
couple of times, and I usually hit my OG. I do 5 gallon batches using a 10 gallon Blichmann.
Posted in thread: Any bags to avoid for grain/partial mash? on 10-02-2013 at 02:41 AM
I have used the Home Depot bags (I split grain bill between 2 bags to save on my arms/back),
and with the exception of scorching a hole in a bag that I let sit on the bottom of my brew
kettle as I tur...

You can split the grain bill and use two bags. I do that, and use "tea bag dunking" combined
with a stir or two with a spoon in each bag. Makes it easier to manage the grains, and I have
hit my OG wit...

Most of what I have read is that once you get wort below 80, you will be fine. I have always
