I was actually looking at the all in one wine pump already. It's at the high end of what I was looking to spend, but it seems like it's worth the money. I think that's what I'm going to go with....

You're right on the money. Just started a 7g boil. My efficiency sucked as expected. Target OG was 1.082 and we got 1.048. I only had two lbs. of DME which I ended all of, but it won't be enough to...

Stone's Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout clone recipe

Thought I'd share this. It is a clone recipe of a Stone beer, but the local brew shop didn't have all of the hops the recipe called for. I did get comparable hops and did the AA conversions so it...

Sorry, I should have clarified. That's too much water for the 5 gallon batch I'm planning on, so I'm going to mash with a full 9 gallons and won't be sparging. I'm planning on 2 gallons of absorption...

Ok, I think I have a plan in place. I added accurate numbers into the brew365 calculator and it's coming up with total water needed of 12.05, 6.65 gallons for mashing and 5.40 for sparging.

Yes, I'm either planning on doing a full volume mash, or a fly sparge equal to mash volume. The only issue is I may not have a big enough mash tun. Mine is 52 qt. or 13 gallons so I should be good....

Yeah, I did have it in there as 1.5 hours, but I may have changed other numbers.

At this point, I'm leaning towards just doing a full volume mash.

By chance, I just saw that my local home...

Right now I'm planning on sparging with 3 gallons. Is that not a lot? Not trying to be a smarta$$, I really don't know. Seems like a lot though.

This also calls for a 90 minute boil for the first...

Yeah, I know this is a lot to take on as my first AG. But it will be my 5th brew and I tend to jump into things with both feet and my socks on. That philosophy has worked for and against me, but it's...

My first all-grain

This Sunday I'm going to brew a bitter chocolate oatmeal stout. It's a clone of the Stone stout. Seems like a really interesting beer and should be a big, big beer. Final abv should be 9-10% and the...

My goal is an...

Controlling mash temp?

Hi Guys, I've done four brews, all on my stove top. They've turned out good, especially the last two. But, controlling the mash temp has been a challenge to do on the stove top with a gas burner. I...

My GF loves good craft beers. We've only been dating a few months now, but we just brewed our first beer together. It's a Bell's Two Hearted clone. Chose that one because it's one of her favorites.
