    Tether: END OF - BIAB

    My experience is that 10-15min is the latest hop addition you can manage with no-chill. I do this by adding hops straight to the empty cube then hot wort is poured over the top. Anything later than 10-15min needs to be by the argon method or dry hopped. I gave up on the argon method for most...

    Crown/Birko Urn Brewing With The Lid On

    the only thing to watch (listen for really) is the thermal protection on the concealed element crown. if you try to go from a protein rest to sacch rest with the element you will burn starch onto it, which will trip thermal protection. (so don't try that) Otherwise with the element running the...

    Wort started fermenting in no-chill cube

    I have only ever had one cube go bad, and that was a very low fill level (like half) from a bad brew day. The low fill and high air content just didn't pasteurise the cube like it should. What was your final volume Dxxxx? I ferment in my cubes, so mine was yeast, just the wrong one! I am still...

    Best way to Clean and Sanitise Bottles

    Oven works a treat, foil caps too. Easiest method I have used. Put them in the oven cold, and turn on to 200 (oven is slow enough by itself) leave for at least 30min at 200 then kill the oven. Leave the bottles in the oven until they cool. A little bit of moisture in the bottles will also help...

    Ghetto Brau version for Crown 40l Urn (suggestions for internal bucket

    i also tried the bucket method with pump. Also scrapped and back to the voile sheet. Playing around now with thicker mash + batch sparge to check efficiency differences. BigNath had some success with a recirc system. from memory with a crab cooker insert.

    Crown Concealed element boil dry

    avoid using the element before your sacch rest is complete. starch will burn onto the element, you should have a problem with sugar burning on. i had to drain my urn mid-brew clean and continue once. definately can be done without silicon spray!

    Garden Hose water - is it so bad?

    the hot water unit is a sealed system. you can't concentrate anything in a sealed system. try boiling your wort with the lid on and see how far you get! water with mineral content (ie normal water) goes in, gets heated, sometimes leave minerals in the HWS, then leaves the HWS. Therefore the...

    Garden Hose water - is it so bad?

    if the minerals deposit in the hot water service, then the minerals aren't in the water anymore? Saving any dissolution of metals, (doubtful given the throughput and average life of these appliances). Water from HWS should be as safe as tap water. Happy to see peer reviewed scientific eveidence...
