Re: Stone Pale Ale

I am very curious about this.       It's very interesting how and why they get to 75% attenuation Starting Gravity of 1.057 and FG of 1.014 are  within an APA style.  APA's are supposed to feature a slight sweetness but not as much caramel of British pale ales.    The 13% Crystal malts will accounte...

Nice to see decent activity with New Members.   Mike in Buffalo -    UB Alum here! I went there right after Carter signed the homebrew laws so we used to make the trip up to Canada to get "Real Beer"  as there was only so much "genny"  one could drink.  :lol: Many a trunk full of Molson Brador cross...

MINI BIAB Kegerator Journey Thread

I'm taking the next step in Mini-BAIB with a DIY Kegerator.  My son returned from college and I immediately took possession of his unwanted magic chef mini refrigerator  2.6 cu ft.   I removed the door panel and replaced it with self adhesive 1/8" foil lined insulation and foil tape (mainly to clean...

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

Hi Janberto, MS beat me to it, but welcome aboard. You have found the best source for info on Biab. As far as no-sparge, that is sort of dependant on your definition of a 'sparge'. Around here we say full volume Biab is technically a passive sparge, since your grain is being mashed in the full volu...

Thank you mass scientist. I bottled today, full 10 bottles plus some flat beer for the cook. final gravity was 1.012 with an ABV of 5.4, close enough for me. No obvious off flavors and nice light amber color. Looking forward to opening bottle. Brewing an American Smoked Stout today

Mad Scientist, thank you for pointing me in the right direction in BIABacus and how to use section O for this solution. I'm coming up with 260g as well. Considerably much easier than the math gymnastics I was doing. I presume the difference has to do with some assumptions about DME. Lets see. I will...

My efficiency is was off, and my question is should I add some boiled and cooled off DME to fix this recipe. My gravity is measured using a brix refractometer and not a hydrometer. Type/EST/ACT EIB/85.3/62.1 EAW/85.3/70.5 EIF/76.9/63.1 GIB/1.032/1.024 GAW/1.058/1.042 My prime suspect is my measured ...

Update: Questions about Mash Efficiency and Corrections: Here is my latest attempt at the Amarillo APA 1 gal brew: [center] BIABacus Pre-Release 1.3T RECIPE REPORT [/center] [center]BIAB Recipe Designer, Calculator and Scaler.[/center] [center](Please visit http://www.biabrewer.info" onclick="window...

Use this one. I just changed in Section B. BIABacus PR1.3T - American Pale Ale - NRB%27s All Amarillo APA - Batch A0.xls My recall is that the % percent sign is not allowed or after it has been saved the file can not be modified in those fields again. The calculator is no longer used. MS The error ...

Mini-Bag: Final Volume Question, Strike Temp & Boil Time

A few quick questions. I made the Amarillio APA yesterday scaled to a 1 gal final volume (including trub). I brew in a 3 gal Target Tamale pot. The calculator scaled down to 9+ liters, but my pot maxes out at 8 liters/quarts. So I ended up 1 liter/quart short. 1. The recipe calls for a 90 minute boi...

aamcle, I've never done a beer that big but I have seem mention of others using DME to reduce the grain bill and raise the OG. My thoughts would be to use as much grain as you possibly can and DME for the remainder. Hopefully someone with some experience in this area will jump in shortly, ---Todd I...

for small batch BIAB, aquarium media bags are convenient, they come in different sizes to match your use and big box pet stores as well as aquarium shops carry them.
