IL / Streator, Marseilles Area Society for Homebrewers

Marseilles Area Society For Homebrewers (MASH) will host Learn to Homebrew Day (Nov.6) at David Bussell's home at 9am and will have members from the club brewing. 1313 Southlawn Dr. Streator, Ilinois     Email ;

My club makes a huge order 1 or 2 times a year so hopefully we can still get our grain from NCM.....We save a ton of money buying through them.

I don't break mine down each time either, but do flush it really good and then take it all apart every 3 or 4 brews or whenever I think of it. Now that my brewery is shut down because of the tornado that ruined my house in June, I will take everything apart and clean really well before my next brew, I can't wait to get back to brewing.

I can't wait, we should be in a new home by then and have a dish, I hope!!! :o

Just watched it, very nice!!!

My house got hit by a tornado Saturday night and the house is unliveable and I have got to find a new home so I most likely am not going to the conference and will have a ticket. I have no internet and have to go and borrow a computer to check my email so I will check in a few days. I have no idea how we sell the tickets that we purchased and it is the full package ticket? If someone knows how I can sell my ticket because I really need the money please post a reply and I will try to check this weekend. Thanks guys and I wish I was going to the NHC I am so mad that I can't go.

Everyone Have a Great Day!!! Cheers

Does anyone know when we get our tickets? Do they send them to us or do we get them at the conference?

I always have my Oatmeal stout on tap.

That would be great.  Be sure to let me know how much water you used....that seems to be one thing that most of the writeups don't mention.

Your strike/dough in water, is every last drop of water that you will put in the whole batch. Its all the water that would normally go in at strike, all the water for any infusions and all that water that would normally be used to sparge. ALL of it. As an example. in this batch we were looking for a pre-boil volume of 27.3 litres (7.2 gallons) and were using 6.45kg (14.2lb) of grain. So accounting for absorption by the grain, our total water needed was 35litres (9.25gal) and thats how much we mashed in with. The Full Volume.


this spreadsheet has some info too:

I have brewed 2 batches using the BIAB and have used about 1 gallon less water than what beersmith said and then my pre boil volume come out right because you don't have all the dead spaces to worry about, and I crush my grains finer than usual because you don't have to worry about a stuck sparge.
