All Grain Brewing / Re: 3 Gallon batch questions
« on: December 16, 2011, 08:17:58 AM »
it won't be a problem.  you will find ways to compensate.  i brew small batches and the next one will actually be a modified biab, actually mash in a bag.  i have a 22 quart electric roaster oven that i intend to mash in. lift the grain bag out and rinse it over a grate, then crank up the heat to boil. 

dave R. do you bottle or keg. i have been playing with different ways of kegging 1-3 gallon brews and haven't found a perfect fit yet
Nothing wrong with kegging 3 gallons in a 5 gallon keg.  I do it all the time since I brew 3 gallon batches exclusively.

Ha, it was sarcasm, I guess you can't imagine how I'm saying it as I would in person.  It's one of those things I say all the time in person.  Basically means good for you, but I don't really care.  Guess I've never really tried to define it, more just feel it.

Sounds like sh*t, Denny.

It's show biz....when everyone else is celebrating and partying, we're the people providing the entertainment for them.
Yeah, I suppose.  I played a show on Tuesday night in Chicago at Reggie's.  Good crowd of 200 maybe.  The nice thing about that is when you're done playing and packed up, it's time to drink beer and watch the next band.  And you get discounts on food and drink.  Depends on what you're doing in show biz I guess.  But being a drummer is a pain.  We have the most stuff, takes the longest to set up and tear down...blah.  But I guess it's worth it.

Sounds like sh*t, Denny.

Well, I think that's just GREAT.

You'll lose more heat than if it were a 5 gallon cooler, but I don't think it will be a problem.  Maybe just mash a little higher to account for some loss in heat.

I don't understand why they haven't found a solution yet for taking the BPA out of the can liners.  They've taken it out of food grade plastics.  
I, too, am all for this canning trend.  I think it's a great thing, except for the BPA issue.  But has there actually been good data showing BPA causes cancer, etc?

Right in the kitchen where it belongs!  Same with the DBF and the chest freezer for fermentation.

Saw that on the NB forum.  Good to read he's doing well.  Keep it up, Jeff!

Wait, your name is Barry?

but there's no need to add magnesium beyond what's contributed by the malt. Unless you're brewing with a large proportion of adjuncts, the wort will already contain >100 ppm Mg.

so no need to add Epsom?  if so, good.

Right, I add epsom for a lot of my beers.

Enough been, and most any chick'll look good.  ;D

You've apparently never played in a rock n roll band.  I've seen that theory disproven a number of times.
Man...we don't get chicks in metal bands...*sad face*
