All Grain Brewing / Difference between Batch and Fly Sparging

I am embaressed to admit that I don't know the difference between these two sparging methods. Could someone explain the difference?

Thanks all. I decided to just do what I have done in the past which is pretty much what redzim describes.

Sorry, makemehoppy, I won't have anything to report back on this time. If I ever do try it I will post about it.

Ingredients / Vanilla Bean

How much should I use in a stout with a 1.046 OG? I know, it's tough to answer because you don't know how much I want. I don't want it as powerful as Creme Brulee, but just enough to recognize. I want the stout to shine but the vanilla to compliment. If someone has to be told to look for it, it ain't enough.

Midwest Supplies sells it in three whole bean packages. Do these get boiled or thrown into secondary? How to sanitize? Do they go in whole?

Thanks all.


All Grain Brewing / Two Day Brew Day

Just want to get other more experienced homebrewers' advice...

Because of limited time I will usually mash/sparge one day and boil/pitch the next day. Never seem to have any issues with it. This week I am thinking about mashing on day one and brewing on day three and keeping the collected wort in the fridge inbetween.

Any problems with this?

Out of curiosity, how did you test your water after the mineral additions? Did you have to send it away or are there home kits for this? Or I suppose you may have just calculated based on city water report plus what you added. At any rate, I'm cusious as how to get these numbers. Thanks. SHS
