Great post, and blog site! Please do share how much maple syrup and maple extract you go with for round two!
I plan on doing a 1 gallon batch of this in the next month or so (I really shouldn’t drink 5 gallons of this myself). I’ll post how it goes (if it goes)!
Homebrew kettle, 50 quart or 12.5 gallon, aluminum. Comes with lid, spigot, kettle screen, and a thermometer (not shown).
Works great, I bought it used then used for several brews but upgraded to stainless steel.
I don’t BIAB, but I had similar frustrations at first with low mash efficiency. I tried everything, until I finally got a mill and made sure the grind was what it should be and my mash efficiency shot way up, like 15% consistently.
If you’re not milling the grain so you can stick your hand...
I found I prefer Brewfather over BeerSmith. The interface is much more organized and thought out, and after using both for some time they’re both very accurate.
I will say Brewfathers water calculator is much more accurate and easier to use than BeerSmiths as well as.
I also prefer all my...
Thanks for checking the project out! There was a bug causing the thread to lock up while looking for devices. It’s been fixed if you pull the latest!
If you’re running the latest and it’s still doing that, could you post your settings json?
Brewed this last month. So far it's been in the keg for 9 days. It does have a small amount of hop burn, but I'm hopeful this will subside. Other than that it's an amazing beer! Very fruity aroma and well rounded body.
Let me know if you have any suggestions on how to control the hop burn any...
Hey friends! I just got a new Tilt Hydrometer for Christmas and was shocked to find no support for using a windows pc to sit beside the fermenter and log what it hears to the cloud! I whipped up a quick utility that does just that. You're all welcome to give it a try! Find it at my BitBucket...
Not sure if you found this already but the compressor delay (PT) setting on the controller is great. I have mine set to 10 minutes. It tells the controller not to cycle on or off the compressor more than once every X amount of minutes.
Ahhhh great insight. I do the same thing. I made markings on my kettle based off water measured with a Pyrex measuring cup. That’s probably what’s happening.
I’m not too concerned about the mash being a few points under. I had my brew house efficiency set higher in BeerSmith than I actually...
