    OK to store corn sugar and water mixture?

    So, I was getting ready to bottle my latest batch. I boiled the water and corn sugar mixture and was letting it cool when...BAM...I tweaked my lower back. :( It is OK to put the mixture into a sanitized canning jar for a few days when I am ready to bottle? John

    For those of you who BIAB + Sparge

    Do you find that you do not need to crush your grains as fine since you really are mashing in a more traditional fashion? I have been contemplating moving from no sparge to pour sparge to avoid having to crush my grains so fine in the hopes that I would avoid so much trub. Also, check this...

    $6.44 Fermentation Bucket (2 - 4 gallon batches)

    Need advice on modding a Corona mill for BIAB

    I'm thinking of picking up a Coronal style mill to do my own crushing. I know that there are some things that should/need to be done to get a fine, consistent crush. Can someone elaborate? I remember one mod was about adding washers somewhere. TIA! John

    Let's debate/discuss mash times

    I have been re-reading a lot of info on BIAB now that I am brewing again. In my research, I can easily see HBT member RM-MN (https://www.homebrewtalk.com/members/rm-mn) is a big proponent of short mash times...as short as 10 minutes. I'll admit...I'm old school. Everything I have ever read...
