Posted in thread: Is there a formula to calculate the temperature drop when adding the grains? on 05-17-2016 at 12:09 PM
Thank you both. According to the calculator, with my parameters the drop will be about 1°C. Way
less than I expected. I think I can simply aim to get the water to the upper limit (e.g. 70°C),
add the ...

Suppose I have 10 kilos of malted grains at room temperature (for the sake of the discussion,
20°C) and I'm adding them to 30 liter of hot water. What temperature should the water be so
that the impac...

Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted to know.

+/- 2*F would be perfect, but I assume it's not dependent on the connector standard (K Type or
otherwise), but rather on the quality of the probe and/or the display unit. Any thoughts on

Is the accuracy of K Type thermometers dependent on the probes or the display unit? How
critical do you think is a calibration option? I just ordered a thermometer without it (that
looks great otherwi...
Posted in thread: Any way to calculate carbonation factoring in unfinished wort fermentation? on 08-27-2014 at 07:57 AM
Thank you so much for the detailed reply. It's helpful and interesting.The gravity of my brew
has finally started dropping again (to 1.018) and fermentation has slowed down (bubble every 20

Some background: I have this porter in fermentation since Aug 15. After 3 days it seemed like
fermentation finished, since there was no activity in the airlock. However, FG of 1.027 seemed
a bit high,...

This beer goes through some interesting phases. In the first few weeks after bottling it tastes
great but has zero head. Then after a while it develops a nice head but also a hard to describe

Thanks for the link. I just started reading this discussion and the very first reply captures
nicely my view on this. I don't have 20 types of beer, but 5 to 7 is not uncommon, and I too am

I'm not sure I understand the suggestion about kegs. I normally keep between 5 to 7 kinds of
homebrew in my fridge, usually a bottle or two of each. This takes up relatively little space.
Note that I ...
