    Does your water supply vary? A "chemical" smell and taste tends to be water related,
    specifically chlorine in the brewing water. Even though your fermenting temperature is a little
    high, that should g...

    OH! Also, btw, I checked out BeerSmith's website, and they actually offer a 21 day FREE TRIAL
    for the new version (2.2 I believe)!! So I'm definitely gonna download that this evening, and
    use it to as...

    No, backwards math, if the OG is 1.049 your preboil would be 1.039 or thereabout. Concentration
    the wort and boiling off water would then RAISE the OG.Sent from the CommuneYes, I misread,
    sorry!! That...

  • Posted in thread: How to know what Pre-Boil Gravity to hit on 03-31-2014 at 09:31 PM
    Generally the preboil gravity is 7-10 points less than the estimated OG due to the
    concentration of the boil over 60 minutes.This is by far very over simplified but the basics
    involved. Efficiency has...

    You need to know your boil off rate, and your target final gravity. Using these numbers you can
    figure out your needed pre-boil volume. Remember to account for any volume left behind with
    trub (if you...

    Hello all,I am doing my first All-Grain batch today. I have been brewing for about 1.5 years,
    have all the necessary equipment (finally), and feel that I'm ready.One question I have is,
    when I'm doing...

    Depends on what your brew requires, a 1L starter was fine for me since my brew was only 1.054
    and my White Labs vial was only like 2 weeks old. What was your OG on the starter? From what
    I've read it'...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter mild explosion?? on 03-31-2014 at 04:22 PM
    Seems like that flask is pretty full, that might be your problem. I did a starter last friday
    and it formed a good inch of krausen but it was only 1L in a 2L flask, probably equates to the
    same amount...

    Also, the other thing I'm worried about is this: IF IT KEEPS BOILING OVER LIKE THAT, AM I
    EVENTUALLY GOING TO LOSE ALL MY YEAST CUZ THEY ARE MOSTLY ON THE TOP RIGHT? LIKE, THERE WILL BE
    NOTHING LEFT I...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter mild explosion?? on 03-31-2014 at 04:06 PM
    So I will preface by saying I have read some of the other "yeast starter explosion" threads. I
    have been brewing for over a year and a half, but this is my first yeast starter.But I do have
    a couple q...
