    Need help converting recipe from PM to AG

    So through research and trial and error I have found this method works best for me. Take your DME lbs and divide by .67 and that will equal the amount of base grains to use. So your 3.75 lbs of DME will come to 5.6 lbs of base grain. Some one correct me if im wrong please.

    A partial Mash Day with Pictures

    Menards has a greater selection of coolers. For my HLT I just use my 5 gal pot that I already had. Also I put my runnings into my BK. Its a beast to lift when I have it full though.

    Has this ever happened to you and am I a beer snob?

    Man I haven't been to an Applebee's in at least 10 years I just dont like corporate diners. But then again I am blessed to live where I do. Cause the customer base wants the good decent beers not that BMC shizz. Like last night I went to Gumpy's They have about 10 taps and not one of them is a...

    Avoiding the bananas...

    I kinda skimmed over what you wrote the first time. I think if you keep it in the water it should still stay a little cooler than the ambient air. Leave a fan on it to keep the cooler air blowing on it.

    Avoiding the bananas...

    The Banana flavor you are talking about is a characteristic of Belgiun yeast strains. If you can put your fermenter in the bath tub or utillity sink and fill it with water it should keep the temps down. Add some ice before you leave

    Yet another MLT build thread

    It also adds another place to drain out wort. So if you look at Palmers book and check out the flow rates it equals out where the wort is being drained off so theres less pull on the grain bed.

    Yet another MLT build thread

    It took about 2.5 hours to build. I didnt have a good quality wire/tin snips so I had to use a small pair of wire cutters. I was going off of palmers water flow guide. I wanted to get the best water flow that I could and didnt want to drill or cut a bunch of holes in some copper.

    Cutting hole in side of Refrigerator?

    and easy way to check out where the lines are is to take a corn starch and rubbing alcohol slurry and paint it on where you want to drill. where it dries faster is where the lines are. Then drill your hole and wipe it off.
