I have a Bayou Classic SQ14 and like it, but wish it had a wind baffle. It heats 5 gallons with no problem. I would think with its wide top it would work with a 10 gallon with no issues.
Charlie P. wrote something once about coriander limiting the amount of staling from oxidation. I don't remember that he did any experiments, just observations about the longevity of his beers with the spice added.
Love the beer and cant wait to make it. After entering it into BeerSmith I show it with 97IBUs but recipe stats show 66IBUs. Any feedback would be great. Checked all settings and amounts/time/AAs. Using Rager as well.
No, it doesn't matter. And I'm not challenging the notion that there's a utilization difference attributable to using a bag. It's just that 10% is a rather precise figure that's been repeated many times over. I was curious if this was the result of a lab test.
From talking with some other brewers I did learn that as a general rule of thumb using a hop bag decreases the hops efficiency by about 10%
I've heard this before. Does anyone know the basis for the 10% figure? Is it the result of a lab test? Or just perception?
How can something be "double black"?
Holding on to the Double Black IPA from Stone, as its the only beer UPS didn't "lose" on the way back from San Diego. Mainly because I carried it myself. I was wondering how long I should hold off...
waiting for the 'drink it fresh' folks to chime in.
DME you would need to make your starter is probably about the same cost.
