Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Welcome kush1960 Let us know if you have any questions moving forward. My brew kettle is about 16 gallons and depending on gravity of beer brewed - most of my brews are just over 1.050 OG - normally get a little over 8 gallons VIP (Volume Into Packaging). That can range to over 9 gallons on a lower ...

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Welcome to the forum hoptician Your setup will be different than mine - smaller brew kettle and a separate sparge tank. A larger kettle would have made the extra tank unnecessary- (since using one larger tank and no separate sparge is how BIAB started). That said there are many ways to brew and I’m ...

Re: First BIAB Brew - Coffee Porter - Plan and a couple of questions

aliced - why not? What did you brew, process, etc.? You list no details… Follow the proper process and good brewing success becomes easy. ***** EDIT: Alice - If having problems or have questions I might suggest start a new post and as clear as possible list what’s going on. If completed a BIABacus ...

Re: First BIAB Brew - Coffee Porter - Plan and a couple of questions

Sounds good porterman , My only question is when to add the lactose sugar. I've had beer with that before (Hazy IPAs and I think some Milk Stouts, etc.), but have never brewed with it... My only question if adding this at same time as priming sugar at bottling - will that increase the CO2 and cause ...

Re: First BIAB Brew - Coffee Porter - Plan and a couple of questions

Yes if you read PP’s posts you can tell how sharp his mind was! He certainly is missed…! The BIABacus is designed to minimize times you wind up low on gravity. Not sure by how many points off, but that is part of its design. Follow it and don’t think you will have to worry about coming up short. Rar...

Re: First BIAB Brew - Coffee Porter - Plan and a couple of questions

Hello porterman , This is one that kind of pushes me out of my comfort zone (witholding water and adding it later, etc.). I know that making changes to the inputs on the BIABacus, the file is supposed to adjust. Playing with these just now, things were not coming out as I thought they would and it w...

Re: First BIAB Brew - Coffee Porter - Plan and a couple of questions

Good improvement. One final suggestion to make it look even better. I would recommend abbreviating the ingredients a bit so that you can read them easier - on screen and print out. That's what I do anyhow. Sometimes I print pages 1-3 to bring with to local home brew shop and if text size is too smal...

Re: First BIAB Brew - Coffee Porter - Plan and a couple of questions

Hello porterman , Welcome to the forum, by the way! Good job filling out the BIABacus tool. It's super helpful. First time I did it was pretty confusing, and the page that shows Clear Brewing Terminology was a great help. I am an experienced BIABer, but am not experienced with adding coffee (never d...

Re: Fermentis Dry Yeast Study

Well after having watched the video and read the info PDF, it is interesting information but complex. They are doing webinars and posting videos regularly over the next few weeks sounds like. All is in support of their product naturally, but that is only fair. Some quick notes... 1) Pitch dry yeast ...

Fermentis Dry Yeast Study

Fermentis recently recently posted results of a dry yeast study that sounds very interesting. I read some comments about it on the American Homebrewers Association blog and am about to watch the YouTube video.

Welcome to the forum SlamDuncan . Let us know if you have any questions. We would recommend using the BIABacus File with planning and conducting your brew sessions. It will make scaling up brews much easier. You will want to review the CBT (Clear Brewing Technology) Page as well. Let us know if you ...

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Hi Jerry / makfrag Welcome to the forum! The best way to determine your max brew size is to fill out the BIABacus file (Excel spreadsheet) we have and put the inputs of the beer you want to brew along with diameter and inside height of your kettle. The entire procedure...? We should have that in the...

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Hello chayes (Chris), Welcome to the forum. Glad to hear you are back brewing again! I had done something similar when I brewed some from 1990 to probably late 1996, then stopped brewing until 2012 or so... Then after getting kegging equipment, and proving that I could consistently make solid extrac...
