    I was planning on recirculating through the grain bag full of hops, so I could hold my
    "whirlpool" temp from dropping too dramatically. I'm very glad you chimed in with this to save
    me the pump. I gue...

    I have a wilserbrewer grain bag that I love. Is there any reason I shouldn't just clean the
    grain out during the boil and use it for hops at the end? Will it stain?

    I'm interested in adding whirlpool hops to my ipa recipe but my ebiab system makes this
    difficult as I prefer to recirculate with a pump while cooling. I wonder if anyone has ever
    tried cleaning the g...

    Auber replaced the unit free of charge and everything is working as intended now. Now, just to
    get it retuned. From stock, the tune is very cautious and approaches target number very slowly.
    I'd like ...

    I have decided that I won't be "going lodo" but I'll definitely take steps to minimize oxygen
    uptake where I can. My question now is not a terribly important one, but I'm curious: when,
    exactly, do yo...

    Speaking of derailing posts... I'm going to interject with what is probably a stupid question,
    but in LODO brewing, how do you aerate the wort when it comes time to pitch yeast?

    Not a derailment at all. This is totally relevant to my decision in how to place my return.

    I guess you stay to the BIAB forums mostly, TexasWine? I've never seen you around before but
    since I've been prowling the biab pages I've gotten to where I can't get enough of your posts.
    It's a beaut...

    It's hard to end up in the camp of low oxygen brewing when you're in my homebrew club... but I
    could be easily coerced.

    I'm almost done (finally) with my recirculating ebiab system and just wondering what everyone
    thinks about the wort return method? I've seen many guys who insist that just dropping the
    outlet hose fro...
