    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    I generally mash with 20 litres for a 20litre batch so plenty of liquid in there. I have stirred when only essential i.e when the pump is starting to slow and the level rise just like on my previous AIO and I have also stirred more than normal neither has settled the mash down as it should. In...

    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    The clamps I have used lift it about 1 inch so if I get a improvement I will then look at doing a more permanent fix like you have suggested. I should get about a litre more in the bottom with this temporary fix but as you have suggested I think I will need at least double that

    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    Right found a way of lifting the grain basket a inch or so that will increase the reservoir using the clamps that came with the unit volume for pumping

    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    Unfortunately am I right in Gluconase will ferment the beer lower? which is not what I want. I will start to throttle the pump back contrary to advice from Kegland and hopefully find a crush that will enable a good mash flow. I want to see what happens on my next brew to determine what settings...

    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    The grainbill deffo did not help on that brew at all as it had allsorts in it and I stirred most of the time but left the pump on full flow which in hindsight I may have been better throttling back like I used to on my old AIO. I am using this next brew as a experiment to try and get a rapid...

    How to tell when conversion is complete

    I stopped doing Iodine tests years ago as I have never had a problem it had a 80% BHE and over 2 points above predicted SG

    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    Did that Foxy 20ltrs in a 20 ltr brew so only 5 litres left to sparge and stirred loads of times but it still kept building up and the bottom emptying. All fully insulated with the Brewzilla jacket and pipe cover. Just trying to get my head around it so seeing how much flow I can get with less...

    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    They do recommend full throttle but as you have said CO I will do this brew without the flour I have removed also I will play with the flow rate too to see if it will operate without full throttle as my previous AIO did. I am looking to improve the crush to save on wastage too as I have only...

    Reducing trub when using a hop spider

    Hi Frisp I have just posted a thread re milling for the gen4 and milling machine recommendations too. Lets see if this helps

    Grain Mill recommendations and grain crush for Brewzilla Gen4

    Hi I have just been prompted with a few threads that have said that the Brewzilla Gen4 has got to be used at full throttle on the pump so as to get a even temperature in the mash. Now I know another member and I do apologise I can not remember their name at the moment is looking at lifting the...

    How to tell when conversion is complete

    I do not use Brewfather but the Brewmonk is the same as the Angelbrew, Klarstein, Ace and Brewdevil etc so hopefully there may be a profile for one of those on Brewfather

    Reducing trub when using a hop spider

    Not to hijack this thread but to show that crush is critical on some AIO's as I said I would do I have just weighed out for my next batch with the Gen4 and in to get 3100 grams of base malt I have sieved off 790 grams of flour. Now I know this is not critical with my previous AIO but the Gen4...

    Reducing trub when using a hop spider

    Another thought is part of the issue the flour in your crush too as I now use the Gen 4 and it seems to suffer from mash flow if the crush is too fine with flour. I am going to sieve my grain on my next brew to minimise the flour and see if that helps with flow(a side issue that may be...

    Reducing trub when using a hop spider

    As Agent has said trub is not generally a issue as it should settle out but as you have said it's not the clarity that's a issue it is the loss in the FV. A lot of brewers just tip everything into the FV and it usually settles as I have said earlier but I am from the school of less **** in less...

    Reducing trub when using a hop spider

    The hop spider will not stop break only hop debris. I let the kettle settle before transfer and depending on your system (AIO) I use the tap then put fine seive between the FV and the tap to try and catch any ****. If you are suffering really bad with break it will soon clog the sieve. I have...

    How to tell when conversion is complete

    If that is so it is not good marketing quoting higher figures to achieve as most established brewers would struggle to get that. Lets hope they have responded MM to all the kits in that way as it will cause a issue with plenty of systems
