    Negatives to drinking high fg beer?

    I also do remember just following the 2 carbonation drops per tallies rule years ago, and the beer always had big bubbles like a Coles brand soda water vs the top shelf stuff... I presume this is due the the.co2 volume right?

    Negatives to drinking high fg beer?

    @philrob sg was high because I evapped a bit much off, final volume was 19l I presume that's the reason for high sg, the batch after this yielded 1.046 sg at 21l, however did a step and rest mash. either ways guys, this batch is in the hands for the yeast gods now, bottled today with...

    Negatives to drinking high fg beer?

    Yes pretty close to that timeline, as I was hot I was trying to cool quickly, so the urn wasn't lagged and the element off and stirred to get the heat down. I overshot and the temp, and brought back up

    Negatives to drinking high fg beer?

    Gday, I measured with hydrometer and above readings adjusted for temp. Bottle bombs is a concern, though I am becoming more.confident fermentation is complete. Cheers

    Negatives to drinking high fg beer?

    G'day, I'm wondering if there are any negative implications in drinking a higher than expected FG beer. I see plenty of advice saying if it's finished higher and tastes fine.. bottle it up and enjoy etc.... I am.almost certain mine has finished, it was my first biab and I wasn't certain how my...

    @S.E Mate great suggestion, and infact I've been on the look out for quite sometime, op shops I've never found decent sizes, I have a 7.5l already but am on the hunt for something around 20l. Big w has some cheapies I've had my eye on. I'm not scared of spending money here and there, just not...

    Great write up @MHB , Appreciate the time taken to summarise in a clear concise fashion! I do see the volume dilemma, however you've provided a great understanding, and as suggested I think I can achieve my goal with a combination of approaches and good planning.

    BIAB question. Sparging

    Thanks for the reply mate, my reasoning is not efficiency, but because I am doing rest steps, I am looking to get better response from my urn element, so for eg the recipe calls for bringing the mash from 35 degrees to 52 over 10 mins and rest there for 15 mins. I don't have a prob holding the...

    BIAB question. Sparging

    Apologies for reviving an old thread, but the search brought me here..... I wonder if mashing a smaller volume with an electric urn.would allow for more accurate temp control, especially if a rest step regime employed.... and sparging to ferment volume is viable, with biab? I find I can fit the...
