    It's easy to make a simple sparge arm for a chest cooler using a plank of wood and a length of
    copper piping with holes drilled to spread the water. I've done this and it works really
    well.Any picture...

    Usually no sparge means mashing with all the mash and sparge water at once, it's a very thin
    mash. Many BIAB'ers get pretty good efficiency that way, but maybe due to the tighter crush
    that they can u...

    What recipe did you use and and how much beer did you end up with in the end? I can see how it
    compares to beers I've made and see if I can offer any help. I tend to mash in similar to you,
    then fill ...

    Just did the Belgian Triple Kit from Northern Brewer. I used 4 gal to mash with @151 for 60
    min, then added 5 gal more of 200 degree water which brought the full mash tuns temp up to the
    170 mark sugg...

    Just started mashing in a new mash tun (chest cooler) from my old mash tun which was too small.
    Brewed yesterday a Belgian Triple which was to have a gravity of 1.076 OG which ended out
    coming out to ...

  • Posted in thread: is there a way to tell or control the sourness? on 12-09-2014 at 11:57 AM
    Just did our first fruit lambic, we also didnt want an overwhelming sourness, because no one
    but us would drink it (not that I mind that!). What we did was pitch 1056 for a week or so to
    get the gravi...

    i would try to filter the raspberries out. i would sanitize a stainless steel sieve and run the
    cake through that.the whole cake might be a bit much, a third should provide more than enough
    bugs. you ...

    I have a raspberry lambic wrapping up (been about 9-10 months) I'd like to reuse the cake at
    the bottom and start another on top of it. I used real raspberries and was thinking the next
    I'd make a pea...

  • Posted in thread: What do you do with your spent grains? on 12-08-2014 at 01:56 PM
    Just moved to a new place and brewed 2 beers on Sat. late into the am. Quickly remebered after
    I had 25lb of (dry) grain I had no plans for the spent grains after (they ended up in a garbage
    bag and a...
