    Covering Your Boil - Oops?

    i thought about that with commercial/microbreweries. I never had the pot fully closed throughout the entire boil. Not once. I think it'll be okay. It was an AG recipe. I don't plan on covering even partially again. It was getting quite windy and chilly out near the end of the brew day, so i...

    Covering Your Boil - Oops?

    Last night was my first time brewing outdoors on a propane burner. As the sun started to set, i worried a bit about two things. - Bugs deciding to land in the wort - Heat Loss (outside temp was dropping quick) I had my lid on PARTIALLY (steam was still escaping) i know that most people...

    Bought New Burner - Not Hot Enough?

    I think i should be alright then. This one has an adjustable regulator and at full blast is pretty loud and produces a nice blasting blue flame. Maybe i'll test it this week and plan a brew day cheers :mug:

    Bought New Burner - Not Hot Enough?

    havent had the chance to yet :P figured id check and see if anyone had used this burner first. I have brewed 5 gallon batches on my stove top before with no issue (except it taking forever to boil), so i assumed that nearly any outdoor burner would work better (faster)

    Bought New Burner - Not Hot Enough?

    I recently purchased this burner from the local walmart. It look exactly like an SQ14 burner and it said that it was "Perfect for boiling" so i figured it would be great. Sturdy and well crafted it seems but i'm worried it wont put out enough heat to boil 6 gallons. I cant find specs for the...

    Post your infection

    Finally Decent BIAB Efficiency... and then trub.

    did you use hop bags for the hop additions? or just toss them in? i've never had any serious trub issues at all with BIAB batches.

    Post your infection

    yeah, looks like floating hop material (did you dry hop??) or just floating krausen remains/trub whatnot i think it should be fine
