    Problems with grain bed not settling.

    I'm going very slow. I never go past a 1/4 of the way open on the valve... I know its getting past my FB but I'm clueless as to why because I'm not banging it while stirring the grains as far as I can tell.

    Problems with grain bed not settling.

    I am continuously getting a large amount of grain coming through the whole process of draining the wort. It might flow clear for a quart or two then have a large amount of grain come slushing out.

    10 Gallon Cooler - Mash Tun - Temp Problems

    From what I have seen, you simply insert a thermometer in the dry grain and get a reading. Also, I see many guys pre heat the mash tun by pouring a gallon or so and closing the lid before dumping the full mash volume.

    All grain brewing and beersmith trouble.

    Yes, I'm trying to get it as close to my equipment as possible. I run a 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler and a ten gallon brew pot. From what I see, it only gives me the choice of a 15 gallon brew pot with the 10 gallon rubbermaid...

    All grain brewing and beersmith trouble.

    Thanks, guys. I'm starting to understand that it accounts for grain absorption and dead space. I had no idea the grains could soak up so much water. I really appreciate the tips!

    2011 white muscadine video recipe

    Nice video, Toddrod. Yeah, I'm here in Deep East Texas and we are in a bad drought as well. I did manage to pick about 18lbs of wild muscadines from the tree line. I've already made some jam but the rest is for wine. Great video on the vineyard. I'd like some domesticated varieties as well.
