    Another Grain Mill Gap Thread

    Using Millars mill today, set as tight as it would go ~.020 and was getting ~78% using BIAB method with 'dunk sparge'. Recently bought the new false bottom from brewhardware.com (https://www.brewhardware.com/product_p/biabbottom15.htm) and began recirculating mash. My first batch setting was at...

    Wilser BIAB vs The Brew Bag?

    I started with the grand slam package for my 8gal kettle. I've bought some extra hop socks and hop boil bags and they are all solid! The pulley system works GREAT! I'm getting ready to order more for a new 16g kettle eBIAB I'm starting to build. Wilserbrewer all the way to fine BIAB brews!

    Yeast Harvest Tracker Cost Thingy

    I started a spread and didn't like the way it was evolving so searched and found nothing... Hope there's something out there to be shared. I may just dive in and make one myself...

    Yeast Harvest Tracker Cost Thingy

    Is there a yeast tracker program or spread that lets you track overbuilds, pitched, generations, including costs etc.? Example: Today I pitched WLP051 into a starter to 2nd step pitch build to ~550b cells in 2.5L. ~330b cells (~1.5L) will be pitched to this weekends' batch (1.076 Black IPA)...

    Stepped up starter vs. full volume

    Think I'll go this way... Pitch the decanted starter (~200b cells) into 2.5L with ~250g DME and put on my stir plate "Taz". Should end at ~550b. Pitch 1.5L (~330b) and harvest the remaining 1L (~220b). Schweeeet!

    Stepped up starter vs. full volume

    On this same subject, I'm making a starter and overbuilding it to harvest the extra yeast. I'm starting with 1.076 OG ale recipe and want to harvest 220B cells, 2 "vials". Using Homebrew Dad's Online Yeast Starter Calculator, 1st step is a 1L starter (1.037) based on my yeast 57% viability. Says...
