I had a very similar process filthy, when I brewed on the stovetop. Now that I think about it,
I always did a dunk sparge with a second pot just like you described. I guess it changed moving
to 10 gal...

Edit: On rereading the quoted post, the question might be how does a pour over sparge compare
to a dunk sparge. Quantifying the answer is darn near impossible, but some generalizations can
be made. If...

It just started to show activity after about 24 hours. I've never had that happen before. The
package claims this yeast is a fast starter too. Ha.Nice.. yeah, it's easy to worry about a

Viscosity is not a factor in draining wort from a BIAB bag. I agree the mash is much thinner
to begin with--which is one of the things I love about BIAB. Seem like after the rise in
temperature it's ...

I find it very easy to add water through the bag which is essentially rinsing the grain like a
traditional fly-sparge method. You have to add water anyway, why not rinse the grain at the
same time onc...

Posted in thread: Can I use kegs and CO2 to eliminate oxygen and clarify my beer? on 11-04-2013 at 07:23 PM
nice trick TK :) It is my new go-to process. I did pull the pressure release valve and turn it,
I think the effort of going through 2 filters was the cause of the slow-down. The filters were

I finally got my kegs and CO2 set up and ran my first batch through the process. My XIPA turned
out great, very crystal clear but black as sin... the only thing I noticed is that ganging up a

Yeah, the brewbit model T looks like it will be a great controller. I would definitely get one
