  • Posted in thread: BIAB Barleywine (partial mash?) on 05-29-2014 at 04:58 AM
    I brew exclusively with BIAB and have made barleywines and other big beers before with my
    system. Basically, once you know the max. capacity of your system (how much grain and water you
    can get in the...

    Sanitation is drastically overrated. It's important, but you don't need to wear a condom when
    you pitch your yeast like some people do. Err, wait.Condoms have their place in brewing...haha.

    Like most things brewing related, a stir plate can be as expensive or cheap (and ugly) as you
    want it to be and still work great. There's tons of threads on here on how to build cheap DC
    stirplates. H...

    Stir plates speed things up a bit, but they are mostly used because it's the most efficient way

    I thought you people drank Tooheys, Coopers, and that weird Black Wattle beer.I'm an American
    studying in Australia. As a hop head, most domestic beers here do little for me. But
    everything, not just ...

    I set an oven rack on top of my pot. Then a bucket with holes drilled into the bottom on top of
    that. Then the bag of grain goes inside the bucket.

    Won't blowing increase the risk of contamination???If you're really paranoid you can use an
    in-line filter I'd say there's a 99% chance you're not going to infect your brew from blowing
    gently on it...

  • Posted in thread: Why doesn't everyone just BIAB? on 04-09-2012 at 12:32 PM
    Just to give a different perspective...From my understanding BIAB was conceived here in
    Australia after home brewers first became aware of the Braumeister. They wanted a cheaper
    alternative of mashing...
