    Wort chillers

    I hated the water wastage too, but largely solved that by getting a $30 800 GPH aquarium pump. Now the bulk of the water is just recirculated from a 5-gallon bucket of ice water.

    How Many Gallons Brewed In 2021

    I was going to update but am now thoroughly confused about the correct totals. Why are homebrewers so bad at basic math? 😂 If anyone wants to figure it out, my final entry for the year: 5 gallons of Roggenbier

    Mash temp too hot

    Here's the original recipe I'm using (which I've since converted to BIAB using brewfather): https://beerandbrewing.com/jds-roggenbier-recipe/

    Mash temp too hot

    You're right of course. I do tend to get carried away and obsess about stuff like temp. I should have just left it alone to begin with. Every brewday is a learning experience.

    Mash temp too hot

    Well, on my last brew day of the year, I managed to screw-up. Just sure not how much. I'm brewing a Roggenbier (BIAB). Recipe called for a 152F 60-minute mash. The temp was starting to fall a bit around the 40-min mark, and so I turned on the cooktop and immediately got distracted - temp soared...

    Bottling with covid

    Viruses don't live on surfaces indefinitely (ranges from hours to days). if you want to be conservative, wait a couple weeks before sharing.

    New post a picture of your pint

    Made my first Roggenbier a few weeks ago. Same experience as yours - draining took forever. So would you add rice hulls next time even though it's BIAB?

    Most overrated beer

    Disagreed with probably 75% of this, but hey to each their own! The point about sours is I think misguided. I mean why would you ever eat cheese if you follow that line of thinking? I'm not a sour freak, but I picked up a bottle of Panil Barriquée sometime well before the sour craze hit (where I...

    Evil weevils

    Well my brew day got off to a bad start. I plunked my grain mill down on top of a 5-gallon bucket and started weighing out my grain. Just before I started milling, I saw what I thought were ants in the bottom bucket! Closer inspection determined they were weevils. The grain itself wasn’t...

    Beginner - wanting to start with All-Grain?

    My advice is to spend a brewday (or two) with someone who has experience with BIAB. I too thought I should first try extract to see if I liked the hobby. So that's what I did and I had a terrible experience - really made me think homebrewing was way too much bother for the results, so I didn't...
