All Grain Brewing / Re: Cologne Water Profile in Bru'n Water

I would be VERY surprised if any of the larger Koln breweries are using water as is.

I get weird stuff from all dry yeasts, which is why I don't use them. I have noticed low pH, lemon, bleh.

Do you think it was hop bitterness or tannins from the hops?  That's what I dislike about all the hazy IPAs I've tried so far.

Amen.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Martin's boil tips?
« on: October 08, 2018, 07:19:24 PM »
I boil out of a gasketed lid and a 3" TC in a 20 gallon kettle. I boil for 60 minutes, with a blichmann 3750 watt boil coil at 40% to a boil off percentage of 4%. 95% of my beers are heavy in pils malt. Zero DMS issues.

So any suggestions on where to get parts?  In my limited experience sensors, solenoids, valves, and generally anything shiny or even plastic costs an arm and a leg when buying a few at a time.

All of mine are from surplus industrial equipment auctions, ebay, and I farmed out to China for a lot of manufacturing.

I am at 3% boil off for a 60 minute boil.  I boil out of a 3”tc with a boil coil at 45%.  Zero dms issues. PH is also a major factor in DMS. Get those pH’s in the 5.4 range for the bulk of the boil.

Thanks all..
Update for those who care.

Still tweaking and adding stuff. Hardware wise only 3 things are left.. On the list is Hop additions, grain delivery, and grain storage. I plan on working on these things in that order.

Whats new?

Added pressure sensors to the brewing vessels to monitor pressure for purging and vac.
Added N2 tank solenoid
Added HLT Boil valve
Added BK  Boil valve
Added Mash Bypass valve
Added Fermenter volume sensors (x4) (in anticipation for auto fermenter transfers)
Added more spunding setups (x4)
Added co2 tank monitoring with high pressure sensors, created a dynamic script showing % left (based on temp and pressure), and alarm notifications for leaks and low tanks (x3)
Closed up the Panel
Revised some scripts
Modified my brew buckets for larger valves (x2) (in anticipation for auto fermenter transfers)
I am sure there is more I am forgetting.

Panel Completed:




Revised Brewing Interface:



Revised Fermentation interface, Tank volumes in top right


Fermenter Modification


Some beers are finally starting to fill the pipeline. They are not quite ready, but close enough to start drinking.
Festbier:
72% Barke pils
20% Barke vienna
8% carahell
24ibu



Marzen:
80% Barke Munich
10% Barke Pils
5% carared
5% caraaroma
2oz sinamar (for color)
24ibu


Keller Pils
80% Barke Pils
20% light Munich

Please, lets not flood this thread with off topic stuff.

FYI full disclosure, the kettles are commercially available because I gave them (stout) the rights. I don't benefit off this in any way shape or form. It was given to them, because of all the people I reached out to, to build these for me. They were easily the best, most talented, and easiest to deal with. Much like everything else we do for free, it's for the greater good. Not in this to make a buck.

So lets please just leave the bickering for other threads. Please.

What role do the BIAB hooks have for you?

I mash with a BIAB bag. I like the way it works so I get zero particulate coming though the pipes. I custom made my bag to have a finer mesh so I get some filtering as well. It also makes cleaning a breeze. Lift out bag and CIP takes over. No dumping, scooping, etc.
I was going to ask that as well.
Can you show a clearer picture of the domed bottom and trub shield?  It's so dang shiny I can't see what it looks like.
Sure, This may be easier.

Precisely why I don’t use these.
