All Grain Brewing / Re: Recipe scaling
« on: August 24, 2010, 07:57:43 AM »
Great tips!  Thanks for the feedback and advice.  I had not thought of the boil off difference and that makes sense; I'm sure I would have gone with percentage rather than volume.

AFAIAC, you should ALWAYS look at boiloff as gal./hr., not %.  Even though Promash defaults to %, Jeff Donovan advises you to change it to gal./hr.  Beersmith only does %.  Until that gets changed, I consider it a limitation that makes it difficult for me to use Beersmith.

Get well soon, Jeff!

Thanks for the info, Frank, and please keep us up dated.

Yep, HRR is great stuff.  Why, it's kinda like a darker version of my rye IPA recipe....;)

I scale all my grains linearly.  I know there are those who only scale the base malt, but I want to retain the proportions that the original had.  One thing to take into account is that your efficiency _may_ be lower for a larger batch.  OTOH, it may not....

Those are Rennerian coordinates....distance and direction from where Jeff Renner (the acknowledged center of the universe!) lives.

I just put mine in the signature line.  I think it's sort of silly for the forum software to ask you to enter your location and then not use it.
I agree, maybe there should be a check box for you to "display location" and then it would automagically get included from the location field instead of the personal text field.

I agree with both of you. 

All Grain Brewing / Re: Round Igloo or rectangular cooler for mash tun
« on: August 23, 2010, 01:37:55 PM »
Not to thread hyjack but, I was given a 10 gallon round cooler a few years ago and converted that to be my mash tun just before the new year.  I have had problems with thick mashes for higher gravity beers with my current tun and am interested in the rectangular cooler/space issue.

What have people done for the false bottom with a rectangular cooler?    

Use a SS braid instead of a false bottom.  I've used it for 12+ years and 380 batches.  See for details...

Is the Rennerian calculator still around somewhere?

EDIT: Found it!

I definitely learned a lot from those groups, but I don't remember which ones I was in.  It would have been almost 20 years ago though, when I was starting brewing.  I didn't realize they're still around.

20 years ago?  Did you start brewing when you were 7?  :o

I still check in on rcb every once in a while.  The only person I still recognize is Joel.  Maybe we should make an "old timers" run on it!  It was an awesome resource and I learned a LOT from it!
