General Homebrew Discussion / Re: brew bag question
« Last post by HoosierBrew on October 15, 2017, 03:20:30 PM »
I reduced my dead space down to zero (from just over a quart) by going to the bag. The bulkhead/valve conversion I used had the braid sitting a little higher than when using the mini keg bung and obviously left more wort behind.. Regardless, I'm a big fan of the bag in cooler approach.
Do you sparge? I have gone no sparge lately since trying LODO. I have been doing no sparge BIAB in my kettle. I have thought about going back to batch sparge with a bag to get improved efficiency. But,  haven’t yet because that might introduce oxygen. Which may or may not be a problem preboil.


No, I'm no sparging since the switch over, Tommy. I'm really happy with the results lately and like the direction things are going.

I'm new here so this can be ignored.  Why not start a thread titled, "Research and Development".  Your first post can be what you are proposing for your R&D.  Your subsequent posts can detail your findings.  Your last post can summarize your findings on the R&D project.  After the summary a brief opinion can be asked for.

No posts can be quoted or challenged.  Each post is just read and the information may or may not be used by others in their R&D.

Unless there are some guide lines the thread will just disintegrate into arguments that benefit no one.

Yesterday I made 11 gallons of a porter based on Fuller's London Porter, but also added a tad of roasted barley to add some coffee-like notes.  Hmmm, I just realized that I inadvertently doubled the amount of brown malt specified in the BYO / Kristen England clone recipe, so used 3 lbs per 5.5 gal instead of 1.5 lbs.  Otherwise, the brew day went very well and I hit my target OG of 1.054, and mash pH of 5.5.

Maybe I'll get a can of raspberry puree for one of the fermenters, and optionally if the straight porter is too roasty I can set up the nitro faucet.

Still, based on how the wort hydro sample tasted I think it will be fine.

If you look at the original post and first couple of pages, you'll see that this thread isn't even about LODO.  But as soon as somebody brings it up, oh my gosh, look at all the pages that have been added since, the contents of which are essentially meaningless and just scare even more people away.
Sorry for bringing it up. It's ridiculous

It's not really your fault.  It just takes on an icky zombie life of its own.
No kidding,  just sad how it killed the activity on the forum

Forgive me for distracting everybody from the song title game.
