    Flow trouble

    I just bought everything I need to set up bleed ports off of Amazon hoping they come in soon to test it all out before the next brew day. Thanks for the advice

    DDH Hazy DIPA constructive criticism

    I personally like some crystal in my NEIPA but at 5% or lower. My favorite neipa without looking it up is about 75% golden promise 2.5% C40 2.5% Munich 20% mix of flaked oats and flaked wheat that recipe paired with fruity hops is 👍🏻

    Flow trouble

    It is all taken apart now so I could clean everything. There was not any clogging so it’s definitely air. I will take a picture during my next go at it. I definitely didn’t expect this part to be hard I thought everything would just flow. Damn you air!

    Flow trouble

    No it’s the red exchillerator even after I was done with the brew day I tried messing with it and still had a ton of trouble with it.

    Flow trouble

    I had to bail out and use the immersion chiller today. I have not had much luck being successful with the CFC I keep running into this problem

    Flow trouble

    Everything is open it just will not flow. I wanted to run the boiling wort through my CFC to sanantize it and nothing I do works I just don’t understand how it won’t come out.

    Flow trouble

    So I’m currently brewing on my ss brewtech electric system and I cannot get wort to flow out of the kettle down to the pump it’s making me insane. This keeps happening and now I’m dealing with super hot liquid. I’ve been told it’s due to aid so how do I fix it and prevent it.

    Help changing my stout recipe

    Until you have better control of fermentation temperature you won’t really know if you like your recipe or not. Fermentation temperature is extremely important. This recipe does look much better than the first one for my tastes I would use a little more crystal and some Munich.

    Pilsner, fermentation under pressure, temp and pressure?

    I recently did a cheater version of a Pilsner with lutra yeast it came out crisp and super clear. Unfortunately I strayed from traditional hops and used motuka hoping to get a line flavor and really didn’t like it.

    First stout

    Definitely too much black patent. That grain is supposed to be used very sparingly. I like super smooth Stouts so to get them super black I use either midnight wheat or Cara 3 at less than 5%

    Ss brewtech mash tun temp problems

    I haven’t had a problem with grain getting through its much better then my old cheap all in one

    Is my all grain kit milled enough?

    If I used that crush my efficiency would be terrible that happened to me recently I was constantly dealing with stuck sparges so I went for a coarse grain and I was no where near my OG. Turned out the problems with the stuck sparge was my system the whole time. I would definitely hit it with a...

    Ss brewtech mash tun temp problems

    Well one thing is I’ve been having good efficiency even with the temperature problem. When you don’t recirculate until the end do you have good efficiencies? I will definitely try pre heating the tun. I was going to do that today but I really thought I’d be good with the strike temp I used but...

    Ss brewtech mash tun temp problems

    Yea you can not hit it with heat and I don’t have the rims set up. Starting to think it wasn’t worth the money.

    Ss brewtech mash tun temp problems

    Does anyone brew with the electric ss brewtech system and have temperature problems with the mash tun. I just switched to this system it’s 3 vessel with the 2v controller. My first brew on it I had to put boiled water in to get the temp up. This time around I did strike water of 170 with 10.5...

    Can't get real hop flavor

    I think there is a big difference. Hops are only considered flavor and aroma hops in the last 20 or less minutes but my personal opinion is you don’t get much until you hit the 10 minute mark. Any beer that your drinking that had that bright hop flavor is definitely heavy on hops after the boil...

    Can't get real hop flavor

    What I would do if I was you is look into commonly used ipa water profiles. Then use ez water it’s a free website it will gives you your additions for mash and sparge water. I use ez water with all distilled water because my well water isn’t suitable for brewing. Whirlpool hops are once the wort...
