    Simple Mashing Question

    When mashing do you add the water to the grain, or the grain to the water? Ive heard alot of debate about this, and personally have been adding water to the grain already in my mash tun (preheated tun), but it has come to my attention that I may be wrong in this. What do you guys do? :mug:

    Help With an IPA, Tankhouse Ale Clone

    It was posted within the Canadian Brewers Group, apparently the guy found the list from a cask competition that tankhouse had been entered into. Can you give me a rough idea of your recipe for your clone ni? And does anyone have recommendations about biscuit?

    Help With an IPA, Tankhouse Ale Clone

    Ok, that sounds good. How about the Biscuit malt in your opinion? Ive never worked with it, so im not sure if a pound is way too much or not.

    Jupiter (Oatmeal) Stout

    Ive never used Black Malt, I assume it would be noticeably more bitter then the chocolate malt, so I would tone it back to maybe 1/4 of a pound. As far as hops go, fuggles should be fine, Id just try and match the IBU's, theres not alot of hop taste at all so it should sub just fine. I also...

    Capper Question HELP!!

    I just bought a capper with the anticipation of bottling 2-4's for friends etc. Its one of the two handle hand held styles. Anyways, it seems that this "Universal Capper" will only work on Steamwhistle bottles (up here in Canada eh), the reason being is they have a glass ridge lower down the...

    Galvanized, Good or Bad?

    I have a chance to get my hands on a pretty good sized galvanized tank that used to be used for a water heater or something like that, I want to use it for either a brew pot or a big fermenter, but apparently it is galvinized. Is that a problem, and does that make it pretty much useless for me...

    Brandon O needs Emergency HELP!!!

    With that big of a recipe, id consider leaving the wort in the brewpot for a bit and doing a bit of a minimash on the 3lbs of chocolate and add that in, get it right, shouldnt take much more work, tho it will take more time!

    Keggle Boil Off Rate

    I think I will assume 1.25 Gallons over the hour. I am also running a pickup tube, not a valve (yet). Thanks for your help guys! Now if anyone knows an answer to my other thread in this forum (about oatmeal stout) that would be amazing!!! Cant wait to try the keggle tommorow!

    Keggle Boil Off Rate

    I think Wisconsin will be closer to my atmosphere then Utah. Would it be safe to say then that I should start out with 5.25 x 2 (for both fermenters), and add another 1.25 for boiloff? That would give me 11.75 gallons to start, does that sound unreasonable?

    Jupiter (Oatmeal) Stout

    Here is the basic recipe I put together, still needs some refinement most likely but has a nice head and good taste. I drank 3 weeks after brewed, both kegged and bottled. I am brewing 10G of it June 22, and will be doing minor variations, but friends have REALLY enjoyed it, even people who...

    Keggle Boil Off Rate

    Good point, for the record im in Southern Ontario, and it is supposed to be slightly muggy tommorow and about 26 celsius. Not sure the conversion to farenheit, but its pretty warm for us.
