  • Posted in thread: Is a refractometer worth the money? on 06-30-2013 at 09:34 PM
    Old thread, but it helped! I've been researching refractometers and found that some are
    inaccurate. Was deciding whether to spend the $60+ at morebeer when I saw this thread. Bobby

    I wanted to add an update to this: I had the LHBS do a double crush on the grain, and then when
    I added water for the batch sparge, I drained off the extra gallon of loss BEFORE stirring for
    the 10 mi...

    That makes sense. How long do you think they will keep that way?Also, there is only a little
    bit of yeast in there, maybe the size of your thumbnail. Will that be enough to use in a
    regular starter?

    I've been searching, but haven't found anything specific, so here goes. I made a starter last
    batch, and then sanitized some white labs vials that I had and poured some of the slurry into
    them. They'v...

    Some good info, thanks! I seem to lose 2 gallons in my mash tun every time, and that's tipping
    it to get it all out on first runnings.I'll check Beersmith for the settings too.

    Hi all, I've been using my system for over a year now, and have noticed that I almost always
    come out about 4 points below target on each brew. For instance, beersmith says the amber ale
    is 1.059, and...

  • Posted in thread: BU:GU ratios? on 12-26-2011 at 02:29 AM
    You did it in your own post, but I guessing you are missing something.It is IBU divided by
    gravity points. So, a 60 IBU beer with a 1.050 gravity would be:60 divided by 50. Which equals
    1.2.What he's ...

    If you are going to use an ale yeast, use something more neutral like US-5 or Notty. Also if
    you partially submerge the bucket in ice water you can keep your fermentation temp around 60
    degrees which ...

    I'm hacking out a dopplebock recipe that I'll be using an ale yeast for. Most likely wlp060
    american ale blend. Should get me what I want. What do you all think of this recipe? 14# Munic
    Malt 2# Caram...

    The process is style dependent, that is to say that the process makes the style. Fermnent in
    2-3 days, with a short primary, rack to 2nd and add the krausen and keg for cask conditioning.
    Alternately ...
