Not brewing today, but I brewed the Denny Rye IPA yesterday using BIAB. First time using BIAB. I had a problem with too much water because Beer Smith overestimated the volume. In the end, my OG was too low despite a 120 min boil. I think I'll be better prepared next time.

I'm borrowing a friend's Thermapen right now and it's very nice. I'm just not sure I can justify the price.

Next brew will be a hefeweizen.

Hopefully brewing tomorrow. Got all my parts just need to install my stir motor and clean everything with PBW. Had to but a new mash tun cooler since I shattered it drilling a hole for a rtd probe. Oh well. Needed a new one anyways. Well see how the new eHERMs works.

Ok im sold on electric! eHERMs was super easy to use and held my mash temp perfectly!

Here is my completed setup:


Not super pretty but it worked really well. Most likely going to get rid of the propane and electrify my keggle when i get some more $.

Long time. Probably a couple of years if stored well.

Nice! I knew the electric comforts would hook into you Awesome that you have it all sorted out. Can't wait until I get the last parts of my herms.

Nice work on the big brew day twogunz. We ended up doing 3 batches and realized we had no more fermenters so the rest would put on hold. Monster mill was a champ (better be for what they charge for it! ha). We did bottle 4 cases of cider and a couple of beers as well. Nice relaxing day. Good to get a few in the supply line since we have been build crazy for so long.

We havent heard anything about it in a while. Not sure if its dead or not.

Also if you are interested in gaining access to the sheet, read post 2 of this thread.

I could be speaking out of turn. However i believe that deal may have fell through. Not sure as I never talked to Mparsons directly about it. He was heading it up.

Brian + 1 on the grain storage life as per twogunz. I have read up to 2 years or more uncrushed and stored well. Personally I have seen over 1 year+ with great results with the grain. i.e. the bulk buys are toally worth it, even of you just get 2row and hit up the lhbs for specialty grains.

You will brew a lot more when you have lots of cheap grain on hand. it is a good thing.
