Equipment and Software / Re: I build an electric brewery and now what?
« on: February 12, 2011, 11:03:33 PM »
I found this post on homebrew talk and it was a great help:

I set the temp probe to the appropriate one  and stuff started to work.
Looking good so far.

Equipment and Software / I build an electric brewery and now what?

I am building an electric brewery with Aubere instruments PID SYL-2352.

Any recommendation how to use it?
How to calibrate the temp probe?

Thank you

To my opinion Pallets vs. leaf/flower is matter of personal preference.

« on: February 10, 2011, 04:20:10 AM »
The decision to add Carafa at the beginning or end of the mash can be partially answered by looking at your water.  If your brewing water has moderate to high alkalinity, I would recommend adding it at the beginning to help consume the alkalinity.  If the brewing water is low alkalinity (like RO, DI, or rainwater) then you should delay adding the carafa until the end.   

Not sure if I fallow the argument.
I add Carafa Special at the end of the mash if I want to minimize roasted notes.
I adjust water to to mash in Pre Carafa SRM.
It appears to be working pretty good.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Cal Lager for Light Lagers- Hmm, not so sure.

I used Cal Lager yeast in Cal Common as well as dark beer.
I have to say first I was hesitant but I got good results.
That was at 60F fermentation temp.
Now I am quite fond of that yeast.

I also agree if you want German lager use German yeast.
If you want Czech Lager, use Czech yeast.

I watched it.
It was entertaining.

One quote was "Lager beer has to be brewed cold"
And how true is that.

Next time I brew lager I will make sure that my boil is cold 212F instead if hot 212F.

I read this on Probrewer.
Dosing goes somewhere around 1 ml per 1 gal or
it would be 5 ml per 5 gal.

I see from the feedback that not a lot of people are using it.

Thank you for the input.
 I did consider that option from beginning but now I do have schematic to use one PID to control all the elements in the kettle and another PID to control all elements in the HLT.
I have to get a different breaker box then what I have right now.
I think we are getting close but there is still a lot of work to be done.
