    Two Vessel No Sparge has become my favorite setup. Check it out!

    I use pretty much the same process however I brew primarily Lagers, so I use the 3rd kettle to add pre-frozen ice blocks and water, which I pump through my immersion chiller to hit 48 deg. ferm temps.

    iSpindle - DIY Electronic Hydrometer

    I'm hoping someone can answer my question. I brew in my non-connected garage and my wifi is in the house. The wifi works just fine in the garage as long as the garage door is open. My question is, after losing connection, will my ispindle auto connect to the wifi when the wifi is available in...

    Hoping someone can help me. If my ispindle loses connection the the wifi, will I have to reset it or will it automatically connect back to the wifi on it's own when its available?

    I re-pitch my yeast, without building a starter, 5 times before I start the process over. Gelatin has never given me any problems. Just a note, I brew nothing but German Pilsners.

    First Keg Ferment

    If you're fermenting under pressure, you are carbonating your beer at the same time. However, I've learned that cold crashing will reduce the pressure in my keg, therefore I set my pressures, for lagers, at 30 psi from start to finish. This will leave my beer at around 12 psi after crashing...

    Using corny for primary?

    Save yourself some $$$ and purchase a 1/2 barrel to use as a fermenter. That's what I did, I have 2 corny's I use for serving kegs and it's set up for a complete closed system. I even harvest the yeast using the closed system. All CO2, no oxygen.

    Fining with gelatin under pressure

    What if you added the gelatin to your serving keg prior to transfer?

    Fermenter Options?

    That is true but the good thing is, I never move it except when it's empty.

    Fermenter Options?

    Instead of corny keg go with an actual 1/2 barrel keg, covers all your check points.

    Sanke Keg Fermentor

    I use a a 1/2 barrel Sanke keg for my fermentation. You'll want to use the gas port as your pressure relief port not the spear liquid out. I remove both the gas check valve and the ball/ball check retainer. I block off the liquid out port during fermentation and connect a silicone tube to the...

    DIY - Self Contained Efficient Immersion Cooler

    I've been using a very similar system for the last couple of years now. The only difference, I cut the top off plastic milk cartons and fill the bottom with water and place these in the freezer. Once frozen I removed the ice and store in the lower section of the freezer. I repeat this process...

    Possible problems with BIAB mash??

    I'm not sure what SRM 4 is but I usually only brew Pilsners using 98.7% Belgian Pilsner and 1.3% Acid malt. As I said I've never seen this dark foam our the larger than normal amount of trub. The only difference with this brew was the addition of Vienna malt and a finer grind on the grain, so...

    Possible problems with BIAB mash??

    I did a double grind on my grain hoping to get a better yield so maybe that was it. Thanks, I'm taking your advise. I'm not going to worry about it.
