    Question about calculating mash thickness

    I have a 10 gallon pot that I plan on using for an E-BIAB vessel. It has a nice false bottom that was made for it that I was going to use to keep the bag off the element. My concern is that the false bottom sits at about the 2 gallon mark, leaving 2 gallons below the grain. When calculating...

    Iron Brewer Challenge!

    I recently had a little error with an online homebrew shop and need a little help figuring out what to do with the results. I ordered 10# of Belgian Pilsner and 2# of Munich for a Belgian Golden. I actually ended up with 12# of Munich. Customer Service was nice and replaced my Pilsner along...

    Bottle conditioning - do I have future bombs on my hands?

    I have only been brewing for a few months, and recently decided that I wanted to take a foray into making my own recipe from scratch. I like big beers, so I decided to go-big or go-home. Below is what I came up with: "Brown Sugar" Porter - 5gal - 7# Dark DME - 1# Chocolate Malt - 1#...
