I was going to add this to the other BTP1.5 thread but I have a couple videos I'm still editing down so I'll put them all here. The first is just a basic setup, bare minimum to set up a recipe. The second part coming later today is how to setup a batch sparge schedule from scratch.


Basic Recipe:

Batch Sparge Schedule:
I'm still trying to work on the quality here. I've read that capturing in youtube's native MP4 resolution is a good way to do that. Edwort also suggested converting to flash video and hosting outside of youtube. In any case, you should be able to get the idea... The second video was uploaded as a hi res so if you go directly to youtube to watch this, you can select "watch in high quality".

Nice job on the videos. Glad to see that you're doing them. I've switched over to BTP since the 1.5 release and I think it's pretty nice. Hopefully some others will take a fresh look at it now, since it's always seemed sort of the red-headed step child to Pro Mash and Beersmith.

What I find amazing is just how long these vids ran. I had to edit like nuts to keep them under 10 minutes and there's still a lot to explain like:

How to find out what your efficiency really was.
How to enter someone else's recipe at one efficiency and scale it to match your usual.

Maybe everyone already knows that stuff.

That'd be an interesting one. I'm trying right now (well, not RIGHT now) to scale a 6 gallon Jamil recipe (Red Rocket clone) to my usual 5.25 gallon batch at my usual efficiency. I'm just manually figuring out how much grain/hops to scale back and doing it by trial and error (trying to hit his OG, color, IBU). Maybe there's really no better way, but if there is I'd love to see it demo'd.
