I would be interested in these tickets if they are still available.
Wrong year.

With awareness will come a deep desire to drive profit. Don't be surprised when barrels of rice syrup show up at your door.

.... everything from fill vessels, preboiling, cooling, moving strike, doughing in, step mashing, moving wort to the bk, boiling. Cooling and everything is done while I am away.  Elements, flow sensors, pressure sensors, 3 pumps, 2 chillers, and 16 electric ball valves do all the work on brewday ...... this is what makes brewing fun for me.
::)

If you're not home while you're homebrewing, is it homebrewing?


I'm there in spirit.




Actually I joke about this a lot.  "I am not a homebrewer.  I just happen to have a professional brewery in the basement of my house. "

Actually I am there quite a bit when I brew. I am doing other things.  But I am usually somewhere in the vicinity.

what kind of reactions to people give you when you say this?
I bet they say, "that's neat. You're wife must be a pretty hip lady. Mine won't let me get a boat."

I use Brewpi software for my fermentation chamber employing a raspberry pi, arduino, and relays. It has network connectivity and you can add a wi-fi module to the pi.  That concept could be employed for the hot side.  In fact the brewpi developers are into that now with spark.
You should look into craftbeerpi. Brewpi has been in development for too long. I fear the lead guy is too into having everything be perfect that he will never get a final product out the door. Bro has been talking about mash control for 5 years. Meanwhile craftbeerpi has accelerated development by allowing developers to create plugins that add functionality in v.3. Every gripe I've had with craftbeerpi has been solved by a plugin.

Good questions.  In general, 55F should be OK.  There are several ale yeasts I prefer at that temp.

The flip side being that there are quite a few ale yeasts that will never ferment at that temperature.

Yep, but I must have avoided those because I've had more luck than not at that temp.  Wonder what yeast is in a Mr. Beer kit?
I imagine Cooper's Ale considering Cooper's owns Mr Beer.

Nice. I have been toying around with a K-RIMS for a while.

Craftbeerpi just got a plugin that monitors Tilts. Very excited about Craftbeerpi's prospects.

The heat varies from model to model. My unit the heat was on the front face, my two newer units have the heat on the back.

Should be fine with a new dip in sanitizer.

Adjunct. Duplicate the Belgian Candi syrups and adjust.
Not sure I understand.  The choices on the grain bill input sheet are:  Base malt, crystal malt, roast malt and acid malt.
Crap, NM. I thought you meant beersmith. You shouldn't need to worry as it is post mash.

I get a lot of bubblegum in the aroma, but not much in the flavor until third or fourth generation. I don't think I ever got it that low, but I don't add much simple sugars.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Adjusting my RO Water

Would it hurt to add 1/2 a campden tablet to my RO water just as a precaution?   ;l
Shouldn't be needed with RO if your concern is chlorine or chloramine.

Looks great! Keep an eye on the outside wall and compressor temps. Often times the heat is dissipated on the outside faces.
