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

:) Pinchons The BIABacus is frightening to look at when you first see it. The reason for that is because pretty much everything any type of brewer could need is on a single sheet. This was done for educational purposes. Ideally, we'd like the BIABacus user interface to be totally flexible so the use...

Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

Ade, thanks again for keeping us posted. I know this site has a button planned so as you will be able to give a post a thumbs up (like) however it still needs some work. If it was working, I'm sure you'd find yourself with plenty of thumbs up. I've been short on time lately and so have only been abl...

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

Pinchons : Great to have another member from Europe, thanks for your Valencia oranges :) and congratulations on the brews you've done so far :thumbs: . Also read my last sentences below... kilo_folio : :P Keelan and welcome aboard. No shame in kit beers. Two of the most outstanding beers I've ever ...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Brew Update Transferred both these beers to secondary on Thursday for their last hop addition. Then crash-chilled to -1.5 °C. Should get a chance to keg them on Tues or Wed although they could be done now; you can see the trub has settled out already. Some numbers for you. (High gravity beer / part...

Re: General Discussion on Site Quality of Commercial Malt, Hop and Yeast Suplies

Sorry for the slow reply mate. Only just finished mopping the floor from our brew day - lol HPA, the link you gave above, do a great job. I think it's the only hop site I've seen where on some of the hops, they describe different outcomes from the hop depending on when/how you use it. That sort of i...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Well, seeing as I was, "up at cyclists," I thought I'd do dome study. [I used to use the term, "up at sparrows," which is when you wake with the birds merrilly singing. Being up at cyclists is when you wake with the aggressive screaming of a plague of passing sporting cyclists. In my street, being u...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

:) Bob. The denaturing thing has always had me stumped when you consider decoction mashing. I mean how does that work? In a decoction mash, a form of step-mashing, you are scooping out thick parts from the mash, bringing that "stiff portion of grist/water) to the boil in a second vessel and then ret...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Please remember, you can never draw conclusions from a single brew. Despite the mess and disasters mentioned in the post above, it's nice to see that the "sugar points" pre and post-boil match. This double-check on measurements and their matching gives us confidence that there probably weren't any e...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

No need to bother reading this post unless you want a laugh and to get confused :) The post following this will give a summary. Just recovering from the 25 hour brew day :lol: . Had a week of being called out to emergency jobs (break-ins etc) so had very little sleep. All this meant that I managed ...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Was just tidying up numbers for tomorrow and on re-reading this thread noticed some errors. The result was right but I made a typo in my explanation. Fixed now. Hopefully there aren't too many more. Met Hamish, the brewer from Rocky Ridge (lovely bloke) last night so scored some tips. Today also rec...

General Discussion on Site Quality of Commercial Malt, Hop and Yeast Suplies

One thing I do know about this site is many hours and dollars are poured into it by a few silly members such as myself :). This is not a commercial site so we have no income or profit. That's beside the point though on this particular topic. What concerns me is... I'm at a total loss at why some com...

Re: Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

Sarah can now join us on Sunday as can sinkas Lost a lot of time this week* on some emergency call-outs. Finally had a few hours today to digest feedback from lukasfab , Sarah and sinkas plus do some study on what is going to be a very expensive beer! Today I also had some time to re-write a more r...

Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

That's the good thing about this build, PistolPatch, it all comes apart for cleaning. That is music to my ears Ade :party: :drink: It's really one of my biggest worries in brewing when I see a brewer embarking on a build with massive enthusiasm. I see their passion and want to encourage that most v...

Option 1 - Aiming for a Full Fermenter of the High Gravity Beer (Part 2)

Now that we have the High Gravity Partigyle set up, we now need to see what yield we'll get get for our Low Gravity Partigyle The Low Gravity Batch Essentials (e.g. American Pale Ale) For the Low Gravity Batch, the essential information we need to establish is, "How much sugar will be available from...

Option 1 - Aiming for a Full Fermenter of the High Gravity Beer

With this option, when initially planning volumes and gravities of the partigyle, all we need to know are the The High Gravity Batch Essentials (e.g. Imperial New England IPA) In this scenario, the following information is essential for the initial plan.... - 9%ABV - 19 L / 5 gallons - Volume into P...

Partigyle Planning Using the BIABacus (An unoffical draft guide)

[NOTE: This is a very advanced topic.] I've wanted, for a long time, to write a procedure for using the BIABacus to partigyle. One main problem is that I generally do not brew high gravity beers ( Sarah Sarah has forced me several times) and the grain bill on those done has not lent itself to being...

Re: My Current equipment and process. 1st BIAB outcome etc.

The joys of brewing Ade :) There is lots of fun in building an automated system however, it often ends up that the more parts we add, the more complications occur and our brew day becomes longer and sometimes harder. If there is a God, he/she seemed to have installed in brewer's brains, not only a l...
