    NEW StrangeBrew Elsinore Thread

    Wait, help me understand. A guy spends two years investing his time and talent, writing an application, posts it to the web, where you download it for free. Then when you want use in a commercial environment, run into problems, you complain? Instead, dust off your programming skills, roll up...

    NEW StrangeBrew Elsinore Thread

    Doug, Excellent work on this project. I've been lurking for quite awhile now. I think I will pull the trigger when the new Raspberry Pi 2 is available. Anyhoo, attached is a beer.xml recipe of a beer I brew often. If you need more, I can give you additional. Thanks again for your hard...

    110v Recirculating eBIAB 2.5 gallon batches

    Can anyone tell me the benefit of a resistored heating element? http://www.grainger.com/product/RHEEM-Resistored-HWD-Element-15A528?opr=APPD&pbi=2E754 Searched the interwebs only to find that it helps "prolong" the element, but didn't state how. Would we benefit from using these? Yeah, getting...

    110v Recirculating eBIAB 2.5 gallon batches

    I really like the idea of recirculating, as seen on page 2 of this post. The issue I'm having trouble wrapping my head around, is the recirc looks like a race horse (if you know what I mean). What's the best way to throttle that back? Restrict the flow by way of the ball valve? Have a rheostat...

    110v Recirculating eBIAB 2.5 gallon batches

    What a great thread with a wealth of information! Thanks for contributing! I've read through this thread a couple of times, I'm either blind in one eye and can't see out the other, or it wasn't posted; is there a 240 single element version of P-J's diagram? If so, can someone mention the post...

    Help with Oaked Bourbon Porter

    1stTimer, I have two barrels (5 and 10 gallon rum barrels) and brew for four others (30-50+ gallons, each). What we have found is the barrel seems to strip the body of the beer; not necessarily from the tannins either. We have put everything from RIS, Old Ale, Barley Wine, Wheat Wine, Rye...

    SMaSH Series challenge

    I've brewed several SMaSH beers so far, with great success; if repeated requests for more is an indication. I like to base the recipe on an English Pale type beer, for OG and IBU bitterness; I feel this gives a nice basis for the malt and hop character to shine through. I've done several MO as...

    Wheat Wine the Overlooked style

    I'd say the recipe is very similar to any barley wine. It had all the BW character we know and love, with perhaps a touch less caramel flavor - just as Ashman describes. So far I think it has aged very well; even though it's just under five months old. I believe, I read somewhere wheat wines...

    Wheat Wine the Overlooked style

    I've brewed Todd Ashman's recipe from that same book with great success. I brewed it to the high end of what his recipe is listed at; mine came in at 1.108 - was shooting for 1.110. It finished at 1.024 In fact, several friends and I have brewed this same recipe to fill a twenty six gallon...

    How about this for a Wee Heavy?

    My neighbor and I brewed a wee heavy last Black Friday (still in secondary). We used: 23 lbs 2.4 oz Golden Promise (2.6 SRM) Grain 99.00 % 3.8 oz Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) Grain 1.00 % 15.52 gm Northern Brewer [8.90 %] (45 min) Hops 15.1 IBU 19.28 gm Northern Brewer [8.90 %] (35 min)...

    ebay aquarium temp controller build

    Followed this thread for my build; works like a freaking' charm! Now, I'll finally have fermentation temperature control that doesn't involve carrying the carboy around the house looking for the right temp. Thanks for all the great info and build variations; home brewers rock! :mug: I had...

    How To Build A Hop Spider To Filter Hops From Your Wort

    Nice works guys, I'm going to have to make one of these! As I can see this being a well used new piece of kit, I'd like to make it as durable possible, so the SS mesh route is the one for me. I suspect there's a tradeoff between wort flow through the mesh, and hop matter staying in the...

    Munich SMaSH, what's the best hop?

    Here's one I did that many thought was very good: 10LB. Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 100.00 % 14.00 gm Chinook [11.00 %] (60 min) (First Wort Hop) Hops 21.7 IBU 14.00 gm Chinook [11.00 %] (30 min) Hops 15.2 IBU 14.00 gm Chinook [11.00 %] (10 min) Hops 7.2 IBU 21.00 gm Chinook [11.00 %]...
