Re: First BIAB Attempt with Pics - Oh no! My chiller leaked into the wort!

That's amazing ShorePoints . I've never seen one that small. Mine are all about 270mm long with the narrow part of the stem being 145mm long by about 8mm thick and the thick part being 125mm by 17mm. My hydrometer jars are 290mm long and have an internal diameter of about 28mm. (Volume is about 180m...

Re: First BIAB Attempt with Pics - Oh no! My chiller leaked into the wort!

Thanks for a great read fowlfeatherbrew (FFB) and great replies ShorePoints :thumbs: Top decision-making on the day FFB :salute: .If you can drink your water out of the hose without it tasting strange, then there is little likelihood it is going to wreck your beer. The yeast will overpower the few n...

Re: Does this recipe have integrity? Can I copy it?

In addition to my post above, I was just going through Ron Pattinson's blog and if you look here , you'll find posts that contain recipes. It's a real jumble of info. There seems to be no consistency there. Some recipes have lots of info and others, like the two you posted earlier fowlfeatherbrew ha...

Re: Does this recipe have integrity? Can I copy it?

Top notes from Zoner, as always :salute: . Further to what Zoner said on the pitching and fermentation temperatures, the original recipe gives a pitching temperature of 14.4°C. This would normally mean your fermentation temperature as well. It's a very odd temperature that so I looked up the yeast a...

Re: Does this recipe have integrity? Can I copy it?

fowlfeatherbrew , great job on the post above. More Detail on the Original Recipe I think you have used an old template that the site still has (and it shouldn't) hanging around in a pinned post. What we really need is an exact copy of the recipe from "The Homebrewer's Guide to Vintage Beer." I'm s...

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

Welcome aboard fowlfeatherbrew :peace: That's great you have done quite a few brews already and BIAB is little or no extra work to what you have been doing. The 38 litre kettle will be fine. We've developed a spreadsheeet (the BIABacus) that can calculate a whole variety of situations including when...

Re: Brulosophy Vienna Lager

Usual top info from Scott and a good question Steve :salute: . I've been a bit absent of late so sorry for not seeing this sooner. This is a good example for those who want to use the BIAbacus to help them work out the VAW of a recipe. In the link @shetc gave to the Brulosophy recipe, the page has a...

Re: Increase heating power

Hi there Angelo, Sorry about the slow reply. Oops! You can leave the lid on to get to boiling point faster. You mention that your lid has a 10 cm hole in it. If so, then you could leave the lid on during the boil as that is enough of an opening to allow volatiles to escape but, I would also float a ...

Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

BMWFan : Read the bit below about "The Average Yield the BIABacus Uses," as this will be a part of my answer to one of your questions. I was expecting to answer your questions tonight and get your BIABacus finalised but some bits below took ages to write and I've now run out of steam sorry. (I stil...

Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

So much for the 24 hours :smoke: . So sorry (and embarrassed) to make you wait so long Scott. [Also Scott, I've written the below for other readers. Most of the below you already know very well. At the end though, I come back to you. For other readers, take your time with this. This is not an easy r...

Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

Hey there Scott :peace: , In my last post I said I'd reply more frequently. Unfortunately, just after that, my van blew up so now I have to find and pay for a new engine. I think I need a "Go Fund Me," page :) Thanks Scott for your comment on the thought bit. I truly appreciate that as the thought d...

Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

Answer - Part 1* Thanks for you outstanding patience BMWFan . Nothing worse than having to wait days and days for an answer (sorry about that). I've just finished a big job so I should be more reliable from now on. Mind you, I might need some practice as I was half-way through writing my answer to ...

Re: First try at using BIABacus - can I get another set of eyes to see if I did this right?

This is a very hard question to answer Scott and a very good one to ask. I started replying shortly after you wrote your question, had just finalised my reply, hit Enter and I was logged out and lost all I had written :) Here is what I remember writing... "I actually started writing an answer to you...
