  • Current brewing gear is a 10 gallon round cooler/mash tun, 8 gallon kettle, and a propane burner. I did BIAB for a while, and now I've repurposed the bag I used for that as a hop bag. Of course, I frequently forget to use the bag and end up with lots of loose hops in my kettle that also get into the fermenter. Oh well, every once in a while I remember to use it.

    I really enjoy that Wisconsin Bock.Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to try any of their
    sours. I've wanted to.

    I love seeing all the pictures and videos you've been sharing on facebook. I just recently got
    a full-time job after being in grad school for a couple years, so my brewing has been
    interrupted a bit. ...

    This thread is awesome. Thanks for all the info, thoughts, and opinions. I'm just getting into

    I do PBW if there is anything that doesn't come clean easily. I've also used regular dish
    detergent a few times. As long as you rinse thoroughly, it doesn't cause any problems.Also, if
    you boil your s...

    I just bottled up a batch fermented with this yeast. It was a high gravity batch with a 1.092
    OG. This beast of an attenuator took it down to an 0.998 FG.By my calculations that brings it
    to a 12.3% A...

    I just cracked open the first bottle of my first batch of Berlinerweisse. I brewed it (started
    the sour mash) on July 15th. So that puts me at 2 days past the 5 week mark.And that's with
    bottling. And...

    Just cracked open the first bottle of my batch and it turned out absolutely beautifully!A
    bright golden color with a little bit of haze, which I assume is from the wheat. The
    carbonation is just about...

    Can anyone compare the learning required for this course with the learning required to pass the
    BJCP exam?Edit: I should have also pointed out that I am interested in mastering just a few
    different ty...

    There shouldn't be any reason you couldn't do a single mash.Just do a regular mash and then run
    off your wort for your first two methods. Then add the handful of grain to the mash and let the
    rest of ...

  • Posted in thread: Quick question about mash times on 08-17-2014 at 02:08 AM
    Yeah, the mash and boil have separate timings. And the mash is eliminated from your process if
    you are using extract.And yes, the batch size is the total amount you end up with in the
    fermenter. For a...
