All Grain Brewing / Mashing with Rye
« on: March 09, 2013, 05:50:20 PM »
I'm brewing a Rye APA tomorrow morning. I surfed around and found the gelatinization temp
rang; but what is the required time/duration for gelatinization to complete. I'm debating if I
need to cook it or just do an extended mash? With other adjuncts in the past, I just mashed
until I hit the pre-boil gravity and all was good.

Yeast and Fermentation / Wild bugs & pH probe?
« on: December 23, 2011, 04:54:21 PM »
I'm a wild brew light weight, but I'm realizing I'm brewing more and more of them. My
question is do the brewers who manage their pH, have a wild bug dedicated pH probe?
Given the contact time and then I Starsan it; what are the risk? I cleaned and
recalibrated the probe after the Starsan routine. Will the bugs persevere?

Yeast and Fermentation / Lacto Starter

All Grain Brewing / BIB; what does that bag look like?
« on: November 07, 2011, 03:57:48 PM »
I will be giving BIB a go in a couple of weeks. What mesh would you recommend? I will
be doing it in a 15 gallon Polorware with a false bottom. So, what about the medium
nylon mesh and 18.75" x 19" at Northern Brewer? Not having seen the fine mesh, I would
think it's probably a little too fine and would risk plugging up.

General Homebrew Discussion / ProMash -> BeerSmith 2
« on: July 12, 2011, 12:42:28 AM »
I know this is a well ridden horse, but is their a reasonable way of migrating MY recipes
from ProMash to BeerSmith v2.0.40? Will BeerSmith v2.0 import xml? Or, will I be entering
them one brew at a time?

« on: May 25, 2011, 05:18:51 PM »
I'm looking for recommendations on what type of oats will provide the best
(most) silky mouth feel for a vanilla stout?

Other Fermentables / Cider Apple Variety Blending
« on: February 05, 2011, 02:06:10 PM »
I have made two batches of cider last fall, a natural dry and one ever so slightly backsweetened. They actually
are turning (3.5 mths old) out better than I had anticipated. In preparation for next fall, I would like to blend and
press my own cider. So, I would appreciate any advice, comments or data concerning blending ratios, apple
varieties and any other pertinent info. I'm located in central WI and Door County has numerous orchards, which
makes apple retrieval fairly easy. As a result, I wold not be interested in cider apples grown in England or Zimbabwe.
