All Grain Brewing / Mash temp calculation
« on: June 04, 2013, 09:43:28 PM »
Is there a good rule of thumb source for choosing mash temps? I know lower for drier and that higher gravity effects it too, but is there some chart or simple calculation to aid in choosing the appropriate temp?

It's your beer, YOU decide!  You've got the basic idea, so think about what the style is (maybe look at the BJCP guidelines if you're making a style you're not familiar with) and what you want it to be like in terms of body.  Then make an educated guess.

Sure.  Let me know when you're ready.  At least you won't have to ship too far.

Yeast and Fermentation / Yeast producing a 'peachy' flavor?

I think S-05 has a faint peach aroma for a clean strain.

Agreed

That sort of poor attitude will keep you in intermediate brewer status forever, Denny.
It's as if he's afraid he might learn something.

I actively and proudly maintain my ignorance!

I have no idea what my mill is set to and I don't care.  As long as I get the crush I want it doesn't matter.
I read you said recently that it was something like .028.

My gap is set to .032. I normally get around 75%, not great, but it's pretty consistent, so that's all that matters. I typically use some rice hulls in my mash as well, just a couple hands full. Using a bazooka screen, it tends to gum up sometimes.

If I said that, I must have been drunk.  I've never measured the gap.

The attitude is in the beer, Chumley.

General Homebrew Discussion / Who's going to NHC?
« on: June 03, 2013, 06:23:40 PM »
Directly accross from the hotel is Reading Terminal market with tons of food vendors. Could always meet there (or meet in the hotel lobby and walk there). There are places to sit, but finding room might depend on how busy it is. And in such a huge place we have the risk of heading cats.

Reading Terminal Market is always fun. Great food and a nice price. :)
I really like the Reading Terminal Market, but it has no space to get more than a few people together in any one spot.  I suggest we pick up some food from there and meet in the hospitality suite on Thursday after the seminars and before Pro Night.

Good idea, Jeff.

Number 8 for me this year.  No name tag for me...just look for the red Chuck Taylor hi tops.

LOL.  Another thing we have in common. ;D

You going to be at the conference?  It would be great to meet in person after all these years online.

Equipment and Software / Pump Selection
« on: June 03, 2013, 01:15:34 PM »
I have the March 809 with the 815 impeller and I've never buy the 809 again. What a huge difference in priming and flow after upgrading the impeller!

I also have a Chugger stainless head with the larger impeller. I think they come with an impeller almost the size of the March 815, and the impellers are interchangeable between brands as well as I've done it.

The March 809 although becoming a standard is clearly not the best for our hobby. The 815 or Chugger works better than the 809, and the center input model with the larger (3/4"?) input I've seen work even better, and would be the one I'd buy next if I needed another pump.

My installations are textbook proper per the manufacturers so the only variable has been the impellers. Don't buy the 809 if at all possible.

I just got the 815 impeller for my 809but I haven't had time to install it yet.

Equipment and Software / Re: Hydrometer Conspiracy
« on: June 03, 2013, 10:56:46 AM »
Years ago, after I broke my hydrometer, I decided I'd buy 2 so I'd have a spare in case I broke another one.  I haven't broken one since.  I think having a spare is why!  ;)

I use just under 10% Munich in mine.  I wouldn't recommend going any more than that with Vienna.  Hops look good.  I usually shoot for more like 40-45 IBU, but that's personal preference.
