    Cascade SMASH BIAB

    Brilliant thanks. I've got a couple of single hop recipe packs from GEB with hop tea bags so will use those up and then make sure I've got the veg bags brews after that 😀

    Cascade SMASH BIAB

    By the way how do you transfer to FV and how much do you lose in the Peco..... I had massive issues with siphoning this time round and lost a lot to the boiler too!

    Cascade SMASH BIAB

    Apologies Moe I should have been clearer.... My pre boil vol I guessed at being 30L as it was well above the 25L line. It could have been 31L which would fit better with boil off. Funny enough I ended up booking my first BIAB for 75 mins due to limited boil off. I guess my boil isn't vigorous...

    Cascade SMASH BIAB

    Thanks Terry, I do enjoy very bitter beers and I was also aware that the Light Munich would give a much maltier flavours so was seeking to balance that. I think next stage in my learning journey is to really get to grips with software rather than doing by feel. The cascade pellets I had were...

    Cascade SMASH BIAB

    So...... in the interest of experimentation, I ordered some single hop AG packs from GEB. My idea was to get to know individual hops and as I browsed the GEB site, i remembered that I had a 250g pack of Cascade Pellets burning a hole in the fridge. I could have ordered 5kg of MO to brew a...

    Non temp control on "warm" ferment beers...

    I found a temp control heat belt on Amazon and have successfully used it in my Fermentasaurus keeping temp at 22 degrees in the garage. It has an inbuilt thermostat which I had to play around with to get the temp constant but I worked out where to have the dial sitting to keep that temp...

    Help - First Full Grain BIAB and I have low OG

    I mash and boil in the Peco so I heated my sparge water on the stove and then poured into the FV over the grain then just left it to sit. I then lightly squeezed and then poured the sparge water into the reminder of the wort in the boiler.

    Help - First Full Grain BIAB and I have low OG

    To get a pre boil volume of 28L I started with 33L which was split between 20L mash and 13L sparge. Grain bill for my recipe was 6kg so a lot of grain absorption. 28L into the boil left me with 23L after 90 mins and I kept the boiler on throughout. I used the puffer jacket to maintain temp for...

    Help - First Full Grain BIAB and I have low OG

    I've just done my first AG BIAB using a Peco boiler and according to calcs managed to hit 70% which was definitely through luck and not judgement, I'm sure. As others have said, I moved the grain around at least 4 times during the mash and had a digital thermometer through the lid of the boiler...

    What is the best kit out there?

    I've brewed the Young's AIPA and it turned out great with one non homebrewer mate who tried it being really enthusiastic about how good it was..... So much so he took 4 bottles home with him!! Evildog DIPA was good.... Not as good as the Young's kit but I think it hasn't had enough time in the...

    first BIAB...help needed for 2nd!

    I recently did my first 23L BIAB using a Peco boiler and left the wort to chill overnight in it before siphoning into my bucket FV and pitching the following morning. It's been in the bottles 3 weeks and had a 'tester' over the weekend and it came out absolutely fine. I was uber careful and...

    Good advice..... Hadn't considered the fact you need to replace the bottle with something in it. Many thanks !!!

    How often do you brew?

    Started brewing in April and reckon I've averaged every fortnight since then. I've done premium kits and also 2 x stovetop AG trial runs..... But my last brew was a full batch BIAB which worked a treat in my new Peco boiler. Fermentasaurus arriving today and have a Razorback IPA kit to go in as...
