    What ABV should this hit, getting varied results?

    Strike volume of 9.21G. 60 minute boil, Pre-boil: 7.35G, post-boil: 6.1G, no sparge (full volume BIAB), bag squeeze (both grain and hop bags). Estimated mash efficiency of 72%, mash for 75 minutes @ at 152 degrees. Using BrewCipher I get an ABV of 9.8%, with others I see a much higher...

    Brew kettle question

    You may wish you'd kept the bigger one sooner than later. I thought my 10G kettle would be fine for the foreseeable future, have had it for several years but want to move on to some bigger beers (higher ABV not bigger volumes). Just picked up a 15G kettle last weekend so I can make bigger...

    Brew kettle question

    I do the same except during cooler weather I find the ground water is adequate to cool to pitching temps and so can forego the second step.

    What ABV should this hit, getting varied results?

    I have created an Imperial Stout recipe and am confused about the predicted ABV. I've entered this into three different calculators and all yield quite varied results ranging from 9.3% to 12.3%. To enhance mouthfeel, I plan to mash at a about 154. I'd like it to be reasonably close to the...

    Incendiary Brewing Shade of Lies Stout

    I have revised my recipe and am confused about the predicted ABV. I've entered this into three different apps and all yield quite varied results ranging from 9.3% to 12.3%. Here is the grain bill. I'd like it to be reasonably close to the original which is 11.3%. If they were all within like...

    BrewCipher 6.0

    Thanks for this! I have a question for you. At least one of the online calcs I've used so far also accounts for "Packaging Losses" or similar which are from the Fermenter to the bottle, keg, etc. Do you have a similar factor in yours? I've just downloaded and started messing around with it...

    North Carolina Beer bottles, clean and delabeled

    Have 54 cleaned and delabeled beer bottles of same size, mostly Sam Adams. Have another 18 clean but with labels. If you bottle you know what a chore it can be to sort for size and delabel. Save your time and effort as I’ve already done it for you. I moved on to kegs so no longer need. Local...

    What kit to use for good Cabernet or Zinfindel?

    Have you tried the Classic or Reserve kits? I am tempted to try one just to see if there is a really noticeable difference. I imagine there is, but HOW much? Tough part with wine is waiting. At least with beer it's close to instant gratification :-)

    Any Atlantic Brew Supply Coupon Codes Out There?

    Ya, tried it upper and lowercase as well just to see if that mattered. I have used both brewfiles and byo20 before, so that is likely the issue.

    What kit to use for good Cabernet or Zinfindel?

    Planning to make the Private Reserve Lodi Ranch 11 Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Kit with a buddy. Label Peelers has the best price by far that I could find on the 'net.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Question about different hops. The only NEIPA I made was based on the OP's recipe (of this thread that is) and I used 3-Citra, 2-Mosaic and 1-Galaxy. While it came out great, I admit that I am not all that familiar with the nuances of each. How much does each of these differ or is a singular...

    Incendiary Brewing Shade of Lies Stout

    Hoping to get some feedback on this, even if you haven't tried the original. I picked up a 15G Brewbuilt kettle locally over the weekend so am set in that regard.

    What’s The Best BIAB Kettle Size For Me

    I am in the process of deciding on a bigger kettle as well. I do ~5G batches now (typically 5.5 or 5.6 into the fermenter actually) and barely have enough volume in my 10.25G kettle for around 14# of grain. I am wanting to do a batch that requires about 25# of grain and this obviously exceeds...

    Incendiary Brewing Shade of Lies Stout

    Has anyone had this beer? It is phenomenal. Definitely a very big beer but I want to try and make it. At the brewery it's listed as about 11.5% if memory serves. It comes in four flavors: Coffee, Coconut, Maple and a blend of all three. I prefer the Coconut version, but all are great. I am...
