Tried to do my usual Malt Miller order today, lots of out of stock and extended delivery times.
Strange times.
But will get plenty brewed and drunk. :beer:
Broaden your horizon. Try Braumarkt. Same delivery cost and much cheaper than anyone else. Plus plenty of stock.

Re: Draining gunk and cleaning

Did the same myself. Works wonderful when clearing out pellets, but not so good with flowers. I always use hop socks when using hop flowers in the BM. I do prefer using pellets, though. - Niels If you boil your hops without them being contained in a sock or a spider the heating element remains much...

Re: Time for mesh replacement - options?

The idea behind the moving top plate is not to squeeze the grain but the complete opposite. When the grain bed re settles after the pump pauses the grain shifts to a different position thereby eliminating gaps/tunnels in the bed thus making sure that that the wort flows evenly through the grain. Als...

Re: Punk IPA Clone rebrew yeast

With that amount of hops you might as well use Allinsons bread yeast because the yeast will not influence the taste. :lol:

Re: Reversing the Flow through the Malt Pipe on 20lt BM

@IPA, please read my post as whole - I have noted with which malts there are problems. You are now saying something everyone knows - I also get great results with say Vikingmalt pale ale as base malt, but that is not the point. ---------- There is no downgrade with this mod. With it you still keep ...

Re: Reversing the Flow through the Malt Pipe on 20lt BM

I think you are doing something basically wrong with your brewing procedure. With twelve kilos of grain I would get 46 litres of wort in the FV with an OG of 1066. That is a mash efficiency of 83%. With a 50 litre BM I regularly brew 57 litres at 1050. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Speidel'...

Re: BM50 LOB setup

With 12.2 kg of grain and a brew length of 47 litres (44 in the fv) the OG in my system would be 1.066. That is significantly higher than 1.051. My efficiency is 83%. Follow my advice about mashing and you will achieve the same. Hi IPA Second brew just finished. With attention to good stirring of t...

Re: timer

That would work, I prefer a cold overnight "wait" and then up to temp when you need it. I guess it could depend on your controller. Hi Mashy I have both controllers and it works with both. Plus no waiting in morning. I also sling an old blanket over the BM in addition to the insulated jacket during...

Re: BM50 LOB setup

I am not familiar with Beersmith. I use a free programme designed by the author of the book that you have just purchased, the late Graham Wheeler, called Beer Engine. You can download it for free on Jims Beer Kit. If you need any help on how to use it with the BM just shout.

Re: BM50 LOB setup

Been brewing with a BM for ten years and cannot for the life of me understand the need to remove oxygen. I have brewed almost all styles of beer with great results. There are far too many "experts" on the internet trying to make a simple process difficult. Strangely the majority are Mercan. And what...

Re: timer

Manually set the temperature to your desired mash in temperature. Press HEAT. Go to bed and wake up in the morning and proceed with your desired programme.
