    Spike Solo Owner's Thread

    Would you mind attaching a pic of your custom basket? I'm also going the route of ditching the Spike basket and was planning on the whole false bottom + brewbag... Never even considered a different basket.

    Keg purging with active fermentation

    Here's a spreadsheet I made based on the post by @doug293cz. I decided to explore different purging schemes for my smaller batch sizes as well as using a separate vessel for dry hopping. Calculations are made for the following schemes: - Purge headspace using only fermentation CO2. Assumes...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Looks very similar to the Verdant recipe for Even Sharks Need Water. When I tried this recipe out the color was spot on with what the OP was striving for. Brewfather had this at 3.9 SRM.

    ANVIL FOUNDRY ALL-GRAIN BREWING SYSTEM

    Ahh I remember watching a couple of your videos! Not sure if you brew with things like wheat or malted oat but if you do how do you crush them? I feel like .038" is too wide for some of that stuff. Very cool foundry setup you've got there. Like you, I've been using a "holding vessel" w/ the...

    ANVIL FOUNDRY ALL-GRAIN BREWING SYSTEM

    Out of curiosity what's your crush size these days and are you conditioning your malt? Currently I use .03" on my 2 roller mill along with conditioned malt. This has been working fairly well (no rice hulls and no stuck mashes) for me but I've been contemplating going tighter to .025". Any...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    This bag was from YVH probably in April, I just haven't got around to doing anything with it. I was kinda tempted to do a 100% hazy pale ale with it but I've got so many frozen hops to use I thought why not see what others have combined it with.

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Anybody have a favorite hop combo with Nectaron? How much hot/cold side? I've got 8oz of it to use for my next batch :)

    California 10G 240V Spike Solo+, Spike Flex+, Stasis Glycol Chiller, misc. (bay area)

    Since moving to an apartment with no dedicated brew space, I've downsized and started brewing smaller batches. I no longer have a need for this stuff. 10G 240V Spike Solo+ $1100. Comes with everything it originally came with. Also comes with a TC->FNPT adapter for the basket, loc-line, a...

    ***NEW PRODUCT*** The Yeast Brink from Nor Cal Brewing Solutions

    Here's a little something I rigged up using the Yeast Brink (2" TC) with no downcomer. It gets hooked up to my Spike Flex+ with some pvc-free beer tubing. Silicone tubing would be ideal but I hear it's really permeable to oxygen. Any thoughts on this? 4oz of hops was pushing the limit but I...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Gotcha! I actually don't have a Fermzilla but if I did I would absolutely make use of the collection jar for adding yeast, dumping trub/hops/yeast, fining, and dry hopping. I currently use fermentation CO2 to purge my serving keg so, for me, it's not too much of a stretch to apply the same idea...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Curious about your process with the Fermzilla. Why not use the collection jar for dropping yeast and dry hopping?

    Spike Solo Owner's Thread

    Curious what everybody's thoughts are on temperature probe placement as well as the importance of wort temperature vs grain bed temperature on a recirculating all-in-one like the Solo. Even with splitting my pump's output to whirlpool port and top of grainbed I noticed a difference in temps...
