Re: Vanilla stout

Hi Scott it turned out very nice indeed 2 vanilla pods scraped out, finely chopped and added to 100ml of vodka to marinate for a few days seems to be the sweet spot for a 19L batch not too over powering but complimenting the roasted flavours of the stout it's best to strain the vodka through a hop s...

Vanilla stout

Hi guys I've been having a blast trying different recipes since you guys got me going with BIAB and I've always fancied brewing a vanilla stout it's a bit of speciality beer and I suppose seasonable winter type beer for some but I would happily drink it all year round. I'm not 100% sure if I've done...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

I've just done my third BIAB batch (Irish red ale) this time I used my false bottom and let the Elitech controller maintain the temp, I did a 70 minute mash @68c, 20 minute mash out @ 76c then sat the grain bag in a huge colander on top of the mash kettle I then poured 2L of hot wort from the tap in...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

There was a lot of muck at the bottom of the kettle clogging up my hop filter I think that's why I fell a little short in the fermenter volume. The idea of the grill with bolts is exactly what I had in mind and I have the parts on order, the grill is 13" and my kettle is 13 and 5/8" so near as damn ...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Cheers I took your advice and I'm starting to understand how the spreadsheet works it provides a lot of useful information. I had a go at the biab maxi method and got 18L in the fermenter which i topped up to 18.5L OG-1.052 so mission accomplished a full keg of beer but next time I'm going to do thi...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Cheers I'm working my way through that post, yes my corny is 19L I hadn't considered the dip tube so the 17.6L in to packaging you set in the recipe is spot on I'll keep that in mind. I've managed to get my kettle running like a champ this evening temps are spot on and a good rolling boil with no le...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Sorry for the delay replying that recipe conversion does explain a few things thank you. I've been waiting for c-spanner to tighten the nut on my mash kettle heating element I'm about to do a leak test and suss out my new stc-100pro controller. My aspirations are to brew enough beer in my 35cm x 35c...

Re: Use this thread to convert recipes to suit your equipment...

Hi guys how can a recipe be converted for the biab maxi method I've had a look at the calculator and as my mash kettle is only 30 Litres it reports the recipe I would like to try is not possible my kettle is 35cm x 35cm and my fermenter is 30 Litres. I'm sure once I've seen how one recipe is convert...

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

Cheers Scott I'm just trying to keep costs down I only paid £103 for my kettle then it's a big jump in price to larger electric kettles here in the UK there also seems to be a big shortage of them at the moment too due to covid, driver shortages and brexit. I've decided on using my old brew pot to m...

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

Hi guys I've done loads of partial grain brews and made some descent beer that way but malt extract is crazy money these days and some of it questionable quality so one morning I read an article on the brew in the bag maxi method which inspired me to give all grain brewing a shot and ordered myself ...
