Re: Protein Rest : When to use it?

I'm not a part of the don't do it crowd (it's your beer, do what you like :D )

I was doing one for ages @ 55 for 10 minutes and was suffering head retention issues on light bodied beers.
I gave it up (except for the ramping time from 40 to 63) and all my beer holds head again. :drink:

Re: Which grain mill?

I use a Monster mill 2 with a cordless drill at the lowest of 2 speeds...works well and would take about 5 - 10 minutes to crush 10kg A mate bought the MM 3 and we compared crushes and came to the conclusion it wasn't worth the extra $ I think most of the "good mills" on the market would suit your n...

Re: Whiskey in the Braumeister

I've done whiskys with success, both boiled and no chilled, and no boil or mash out, chilled and pitched straight away. I would love to do bourbon but mashing something like 70% corn scares me. What grain bills for whiskey did you use? What was your favourite? I just ran a bourbon bill with 70% cor...

Re: Rice Hulls

Better safe than sorry!! I was doing a bourbon (70% corn maise) on the weekend and it was like jelly when I pulled the grain out and during the rests at times it was shooting water spouts. Was a little funny until I seen about 500ml of my wash on the bench. Was definitely wishing I had used some ri...

This to me is the biggest selling point of an immersion chiller.
I put mine in, drop the temp til I can use the pump, put the lid on and walk away.

Re: Carapils or not to Carapils that is the question

I've been having problems with head retention with my light coloured lagers and have tried carapils on the last couple of beers.
A bit of reading on AHB has led me to a new mash schedule so I'll see if I can do without it.

Re: 20 vs. 50, did you regret the size you chose?

It's just for whiskey making I have a 50lt boiler and 60lt fermenters so I have to do 2 batches on the 20lt to fill the still.

I love the 20lt for beer because I can fill a 19lt keg with a few extra bottles, I like the variety of a 20lt.

Re: 20 vs. 50, did you regret the size you chose?

So I'm quite convinced that the Braumeister is a huge time saver. That's the best selling point for me, I can go mow the lawn head of into town or anything else that might take my fancy and it does it own thing. I did like my 3V brewing but I was always standing not too far away from it, boiling wa...

One benefit of cubing is that if something comes up and you don't get time to pitch your yeast you can leave it, I've left a cube for months (forgot it :oops: )
