Unless you're an extract brewer . . .Screw the dictionary...to me, brewing is wort production. After that, it's fermentation, not brewing.But by definition, there's still brewing involved...hence the name.

To me, "brew" doesn't include fermentation, although I can see how newbies might not catch the difference.So, once the boil is over the brewer gets to go home? Or extract brewers don't actually brew beer? Not sure where you logic comes from, but since the dictionary doesn't agree with it, I can also see how newbies might not catch the difference.
v. brewed, brew·ing, brews
1. To make (ale or beer) from malt and hops by infusion, boiling, and fermentation.
If I want to start trying to use secondary fermentation, will it work to just rack to the bottling bucket in advance of bottling day? . . . Thoughts?If you want to try secondary fermentation, you'll have to add more fermentables to the secondary vessel.
I've mashed thick and thin and haven't noticed much difference - meaning from 1.1 - 2 qts/lb. I like a thinner mash for the ease of a quicker runoff. For the record, I batch sparge.Isn't up to 2 qts/lb safe with limited pH worries.
Looking forward to brewing out in the garage again very soon . . . Don't fix what ain't broke.Congrats. It takes strength to resist the dark side.
Most of the people I hear supporting rinsing do it because they brew super hoppy beers. Well, since you are dropping $20 on dry hops, seems like you could splurge for a fresh pitch...Not in support of rinsing, but the simple answer to that is don't fear the secondary.
