    BIAB basics question

    I've been an AG brewer since around '97 or so. recirculated, 3 tier, fly sparge, gas fired, standard system. I'm in the process of building a eBIAB system and have never even witnessed a BIAB brew. I know that the general BIAB process is to do a full volume mash, then pull your bag. Is...

    New e-brewery

    Like half of the people who start a threads here, I'm looking for help and clarification! (My next post will hopefully be the other half who posts pictures of their builds!) So I'm torn... Brew-Boss? BCS? PID? My goal is to start eBIAB and possibly expand to a 3V, e-HERMS. I...

    Temperature/humidity sterilizing?

    I'm going to be doing a deep dive on all of my fermenters and REALLY getting them clean, and insuring they're sanitized. I always clean them and sanitize w/ iodine, but I've got some barrel aged sours in the brewery now, and want to make extra sure that everything is good to go. I work for...

    Kegerator died - advice on keezer

    Now that my third hand-me-down fridge died on me (all freezer on top, fridge on bottom), I'm debating what I'm going to do now. Thinking of buying a new chest freezer for a keezer, and second for the family freezer. I always just used the fridge portion for beer (5 kegs serving, w/ 1 on...

    New Kegerator build

    My old kegerator is on its last leg, so thanks to some friends of mine I have a GE TBX25Z in my garage that I'll be drilling in to. This is a standard, freezer on top fridge from likely the mid-late eighties. Does anyone know if there are any refrigerant lines in the side walls of this...

    Rio concentrates and Maltodextrin

    I discovered and read the thread on syrups a few weeks ago when my wife decided that we were going to have 20 or so kids over for my daughter's birthday party and she wanted different, colorful soda's for the kids. She created a monster! I've got 7 flavors that I'm itching to mix up for the...

    Frosty freezer in kegerator

    I've got a standard upright refrigerator that I converted many years ago to a kegerator. 4 taps out the side, and I was golden. Fast forward to today, I sealed off the 4 taps on the side, bored two large holes in the other side, and ran beer line through one hole into an insulated box, and...

    My basement bar

    My basement finishing project has been going on for a LLOOONNNGGG time, and I'm finally nearing completion, so I thought I'd post up some pictures! I basically started with bare walls. I framed some internal walls so I could start on some storage areas, then observed cracks for leaks...

    Compressed air in your brewery

    I'm going to be running copper today for airlines in my shop. In the next month I'll be moving my brewery into the shop (electric). Can you you think of any uses for having compressed air in the brewery section? All I could think of was blow drying things (ie, blow out hose sections, etc.)...

    Basic e-brew questions

    Just tooling around the site looking at things brought up a few questions before I make decisions... 1. Heatsticks vs mounted elements: Pros and cons? Seems like the heatsticks would work just as well, be easier to clean, etc. Con: not as elegant? Fill me in. 2. I intend on 5 and 10...

    First Post: Honeywell industrial controllers

    Long time HBD subscriber, finally got off my ass and figured I'd join here! :D Quite some time ago, I was given two Honeywell industrial controllers by an old lab manager who was going to scrap them and he thought I might be able to put them in my home brewery. As far as I know they work...
