I put a bunch in a bowl of Starsan a few minutes before capping. I use the O2 absorbing caps, but they're not immersed long enough to deplete the O2 absorbing material in the short interval before...

I used to do 5 gal BIAB batches in a 10 gal BK. With higher gravity beers I was getting right up to the rim. Ten gallon high gravity batches in a 20 gal kettle will probably be tight as well. You...

If you plan to age it on that oak for a long time, use oak cubes instead of chips. Soak them in your favorite bourbon for a couple weeks, then drop into the fermenter. Oak chips are meant to be in...

Plastic milk crates

While browsing in Home Despot today, I spotted some black plastic milk crates. Not the flimsy Sterilite crates that I wouldn't trust for carrying more than a few pounds, but a consumer version of a...

Anyone try CBC-1? I've heard a few people talk about it, but not much talk online yet. I have a batch of Marubozo's RIS aging in a carboy, and will bottle it after it's been there 4 or 5 months.

I'll have about 45% rye in the bill, so the beta-gluc rest might be in order.

Looks like a good plan.
Sifting through some of the threads on rye beers, I found several instances of brewers getting "thick" beer. The B-C rest looks like a good way to lower that viscosity.

Maybe I should hold back a couple gallons of water then do a pour-over sparge. Would rice hulls make it a bit more manageable? I know they are practically necessary for standard AG.

I'm interested in brewing a traditional Roggenbier, BIAB. I found a recipe for a Schierlinger clone on BYO (https://byo.com/stories/item/1329-roggenbier-style-of-the-month), the "Sehr gut" recipe. ...

Maybe 1/4 roll on brew day. I don't like using sponges or washcloths--too many opportunities for nasties to grow there and get spread around.
