Even putting the batch in as is doesn't yield the same gravities, ibu or abv for me. I will go double check that I got the right brands and srm for each grain. ...

Nothing brewing this weekend. My dip tube filters should be in the afternoon so maybe I will get to enjoy the fruits of my labor. Gnarly barley posted their recipe for korova milk porter celebrate homebrew legalization day. May try to recreate their PB variant since I can't get it up here. I scaled ...

re: True Italian Spaghetti Sauce - puffulufogous
Are you looking for Italian American spaghetti with meat sauce, bolognese, or the Sunday sauce that others have mentioned? I'm not italian but I've made each variation and they're all good. I grew up eating spaghetti with meat sauce so that's the one I make most frequently. I can't give you an exact...

How long did utah biodiesel take to ship your order? I got a order confirmation but no shipping notification. I have that pale ale in the serving keg that is still getting clogged up with keg hops. Trying to decide whether to wait for the filter to come in or rack to another keg. It's probably oxidi...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
Glad you mentioned that you had problems with the floating dip tube. Will not waste my time with it. Eta I ordered a couple of the dip tube filters and the #6 drilled stoppers they recommended. Will need to get a couple new straight dip tubes. My old ones are the curved ones, one of which I've be...

[quote]I'm assuming you are keg fermenting to reduce O2 pickup? I've had success in doing this without keg fermenting by employing the O2 free transfer method shown in my pictures, and also utilizing the cold crash guardian. That seems to be the area where the greatest potential for o2 pickup for me...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
They actually have a link to the Janish article on their webshop. In your experience the dip tube filter with drilled stopper is good enough to handle any hop debris and trub from keg fermentation? I was also looking at one of those corny keg hoppers to use in combination but it's twice the price of...

Next time I complain about mash efficiency please tell me to stfu and direct me back to this post. This was only the second time I fermenter in a keg. I was trying to transfer my cascade pale ale to a serving keg and the beer would not transfer through the jumper. I kept fooling with the fermenter s...

Well so far that's three of us. Let's see if we can get a couple more. Maybe we can do a zoom meeting about what's in the pipeline and what we are planning to brew. We could do tasting comparisons on a commercially available craft beer. Bug if you felt like it you could do a little talk about basics...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
[quote]Well, the volume of water in the mash is converting the starches to sugars. I would think that the volume of mash has a higher concentration of your sugars, as opposed to your sparge water. The sparge is intended to "wash out" the remaining sugars as you drain to your kettle, along with some ...

Next time I will stir with each batch and post sparge/pre gravity measurement. [quote] Well, if you have too much water, it will dilute your final extraction. I think i'm at 1.25 qts/lb in my setup.[/quote] Right but if my sparge volumes drop as the mash volume goes up and I end up with the s...

Ok here's my general process besides the normal clean and sanitize everything. Bring 9-10g of water to ~180 degrees. Drain off strike water into mash tun to preheat and stir vigorously until mash in temp is reached. Dough in grains and stir vigorously. Check mash temp in several places and record. C...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
Nope, I started by taking checking with a refractometer (not calibrated but just for curiosity) and it read 1.035. I set aside my hydrometer sample and cooled it to very close to RT and it was 1.037 when my post mash gravity is supposed to be 1.046. I did some quick boil off calculations and figured...
