    New England Style TIPA

    A question that i have been meaning to find clarification for some time. When I brew I target for 8 gallons in my FV and then when I package i usually leave 1/2 gallon in my left in the FV and 5 gal into the keg. Now how do i calculate my hop ratio (ounces/gallon)to compare it to what everyone...

    Prop'n up starter from dregs from a can

    Quick question, so i propagated up dregs successfully from a 16oz can about a month ago. They are stored in a mason jar in my fridge. I am unsure of the cell count so i thought i would make a 2 step starter for to use in my next batch and pitch half then save the other half. Is that the best...

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    I am in the 154-156 range for the last 5 batches, i used to be a 152/153 masher but in my earlier competitions the judges commented on it lacking malt flavor. So changed to higher temps. When using Loki for the first time in my last batch mashing at 156, i crashed the yeast out at 1016 but i...

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    What are your thoughts on this, i am probably over thinking it but still... I hate any chance of o2 getting in. I am using loki yeast, fermenting at 96*F and just hit FG. I want to naturally free fall the temp to like 71/72 degrees for the yeast to clean up for a day or so. Is there any risk...

    Ebiab sample programs for using Ezboil DSPR 320

    I did some testing last night. With just 11 gal of water I put the set temp to 156*f and took the temp coming out of the pump and at the top of the water and they were both at 156. My system held the temp right on for the 30 min I tested it for. so I am completely dumbfounded at this point as...

    Ebiab sample programs for using Ezboil DSPR 320

    My prob is 2-3 inches away from my heating element and its at the same height as the element. My intake port from the kettle to the pump is only like 6-8 inches away from the probe. I am very confused whats going on here. I do not have my kettle insulated, just the beer lines going from kettle...

    Just brew again this weekend and with 156* set on my PID and i had 153/152 discharging from my pump on to the top of the grist/bag. I played around with my set temps and the wort did not hit 156* until i had 165* for my set temp. That kinda worried me and i am not sure this is what i should do...

    Cornelius Keg Lid with TC Clamp opening?

    with some retrofitting you can add the weldless TC port from brewhardware.com, i think you should have enough room no welding needed. I was thinking about ordering one just to toy with to make a hop doser also https://www.brewhardware.com/product_p/tc15wlf.htm

    What is the ceiling for WP hopping rates? Are you suggesting more like 0.75 oz of hop per gallon of wort in the WP?

    I have foam insulation wrapped around all my hoses already. I will have to check what the temp is coming out from the pump onto the top of the wart next brew.
