Re: Overnight mash?

Ok, Water only testing complete. I combined this test with a 24 hour PBW clean on the mastun and piping. All small SS parts went into the MT with the screens and other bits. Procedure: Blockoff plates installed on the output port to the BK Blockoff plate installed on the port for the LT http://i2.wp...

Re: Brew Stand and Fermenter mods

Hey, I was just thinking about this! I think I will exchange the images for links to where the pictures are being hosted. Else, I will shrink the images to 2920x1080 or something along those lines.

when I get to my computer I will check out the recommended software option.

Brew Stand and Fermenter mods

moved to a Hop Spyder instead of using whole hops all the time. Also use this same spyder for Whirlpooling/hopstand post boil. I use an elbow to put the output directly into the spyder. http://www.brewingmagnumopus.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/20160320_174155.jpg I took meegs advise and also repla...

Gaskets

Is everyone still using BUNA gaskets on their brew stands? Since I bought my system used, most of these were looking fairly uhhh... used... I had to peel and scrape out the gasket that was in the BK that attached the dip tube. That connection was a disaster to get cleaned up... After the initial sur...

Re: Overnight mash?

Good thoughts Hooch, I am not too concerned with the wild aspects. Keeping the lid on it should prevent anything from dropping in. Any Brett should not have a chance to get established in this time period. Did some looking around for information on Lactic Bacteria growth. Seems they may survive mash...

First time Competition Entries this Year

I entered a few of my ales into local beer judging contests this year. This has been the first time I have put my hobby out there to be judged, and I feel like I have come a long way from switching to allgrain brewing at the beginning of 2014. Simcoe SMaSH - Entered into Great Storm Brewing - homebr...

Re: Beersmith 2.0

Heh, that's cool. I work around the corner from trinity, and my co-workers routinely meet there after work for food and drinks. There should be a case study made of how trinity markets and brands.

Re: Trying to dial-in the initial BeerSmith profile

I love Kai's site: http://braukaiser.com/ After practically reading the entire site over and over, I have decided I prefer to perform a Hochkurz Double Decoction for all of my brewing. Thus, this means, I have an additional burner and 8 gallon SS pot set right next to my BM for my decoctions. This m...
