Re: Moving to E-BIAB

@Scott That brew day itself went pretty well. I did have to keep the lid partially on to keep the boil going and only boiled off .5gal/1.893L per hour. I do plan on adding insulation to see if it will allow me to remove the lid. Sadly though I lost that batch to a faulty dump valve. It's the first b...

Re: Moving to E-BIAB

Well it didn't turn out as planned and as most people's situations these days things changed. I did end up going electric and picked up a 1800w induction cooktop. It's currently mashing a pale ale I'm going to pitch Imperials Kveik, Loki, and ferment at 86F, about 30C I think. So far so good though....

Moving to E-BIAB

All, I've grown tired of having to fill propane tanks and being limited by weather. I'm looking at a custom Spike 15 gallon kettle with triclamp ports for the element, 5500w ripple, and a Blichmann Brewcommander for the controller and paying for a NEMA 14-30 conversion to avoid an the need for an ad...

Re: Kegerator Conversion

@robertz64 I'm planning to use the 4mm EVABarrier line from MoreBeer and according to their site its 4mm (5/32) ID and 8mm (5/16) OD. It also fits the Duotight push-in fittings I have planned for my setup and requires less line length to balance the pressure.

Cheers
Tony

Kegerator Conversion

After a lot of thought and planning I have decided to convert a 4.4 cu ft dorm fridge to a kegerator. My question to those that have done this is what did you use to protect your gas line if you feed it to your co2 tank outside the fridge? I'm guessing there are grommets big enough as you see them o...

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

Welcome Aggie, This is definitely a positive forum to come and get loads of information about brew in a bag and brewing in general. There are members who have been involved with BIAB before there were commercial options. As far as the goal of keeping a 2 hour brew day, I'm not sure how close you wil...

Russian River Consecration Clone

Happy New Year's everyone. I'm looking for some help double checking my work on a clone recipe. The kit is from MoreBeer (https://www.morebeer.com/products/kit-allgrain-russian-rivers-consecration-5-gallons.html) but lacks any real useful information about the recipe itself. The majority of what I l...

Re: If you had no money restrictions, would you keg or bottle?

ShorePoints, you make valid arguments toward the negatives of kegging. My ferm chamber is currently a 4.4 cu ft mini-fridge which is barely large enough to hold the standard size keg and a 20lb co2 canister. I wouldn't be purchasing a freezer to convert to a keezer, at least not right away, so that ...

Re: If you had no money restrictions, would you keg or bottle?

I'd like to resurrect this topic and get updated opinions on kegging. I'm strongly considering leaving bottling behind, sort of, and both fermenting in and serving from kegs. My thought process is: 1. Cleaning kegs would be easier than cleaning the equivalent number of bottles required to package 19...

Inkbird Calibration Question

After about a year and a half something strange has begun with my Inkbird ITC-308. It seems that as the set temperature is lowered the probe reading drifts further from the actual temperature. I have a digital thermometer that I calibrated in both ice water and boiling, accounting for elevation and ...

Re: More BIABacus function

Pat, I've made the mistake of not doing a save before making changes to files in the past when I first started trying to learn to code in Python so I'll definitely do that before playing with the reports. I hadn't really done much with Excel formulas until recently when I started looking at pulling ...

Re: BIABacus version

Pat The "get data" method may not be the correct name for it but is rather what the push button reads under the data heading in the ribbon on Excel.i just wasn't sure what else to call it. Essentially it just attempts to populate all the fields from one source to another assuming all the information...

Re: More BIABacus function

Thanks for the reply. That makes sense and I suppose you never know how the code will behave in other spreadsheet programs. As it turned out all the information I wanted is on the recipe report, just in a different order but nothing that couldn't be edited in a word document.

Cheers
Tony

Re: More BIABacus function

So it looks like what I was trying to accomplish with the having the checklist section automatically pull info from all other sections is already accomplished by the recipe report page. Not sure why I never really looked there. Even though I like that I was able to order things the way I want it see...
