Re: It takes a long time to heat the water in BM200!

Why do you need to start with a good cleaning with warm water anyway?
It's gonna cook at the end of the brewing proces...
I assume you clean directly after brewing, so why start again? (or am I missing something?)

Re: How many bottles..

I wonder how our aussie friends are doing though, with all the heath and fires going on down there, I do pity them.

Re: Cold crash

Jeez...
Isn't there a winemakersforum somewhere?
Personally I don't come near that stuff.

However, I would say that wine don't need to be as clear as beer, so i would skip that step
(and skip winemaking altogether) :twisted:

Re: Sparging

I vary between 23 & 25 ltrs, just aim at 3 to 5 liters sparging water.
If you use much less, take good care that youre heating coils don't get exposed and burn during mashing...

Re: Sparging

The way I do it: Sparge with max 5L (but most times 3L) @ around 80C. Sparge with the malt pipe at the highest bolts (so most of the malt pipe is in the wort). Start boiling with the malt pipe hanging there for about 15 minutes (ofcourse it isn't actually boiling yet). As no liquid is visible I put ...

Re: Ideas for removing the steam!

Did a test ride with water only.Everything seemed OK.
Condensator did work :)

I will give the inside of the PVC tubes a good cleaning to be secure.
They are straight out of the factory, so mabey there can be some grease in there that wouldn't taste good in the beer.

Re: Ideas for removing the steam!

IMG_3850 (2).jpg I fabricated this today, hope this is the solution for me. It's PVC and can take up to 120 degrees celsius, so that should be no problem. The part directly on the hood is a condensator so condens shouldn't get into the wort. It's completely flexible, so I can move it to the side wh...

Re: Fermentor Air lock

You'll need liquid in an airlock if you want it to function.

Re: Increase of spam posts

+1, happy to help out if needed, I know I don't post too much but I do frequently visit this site.
Vacuum the dust won't make me feel dirty, obviously it doesn't happen too much in this place..

(currently it feels like visiting a porn forum and i'm glad my daughters aren't watching over my shoulder)

Re: Sparge water and temperature

In my case you can dial in the max temp you want your tapwater to be.
So I have put it to the max, It's also part of the central heating system.

In the Netherlands tap water is save to brew with.

Re: What Barley malt do you use?

I only buy my Base malt in 25 kg bags (pale or pilsner, depending on my mood),
specialty malts I buy in 5kg buckets, so they don't get to old.
Mostly I buy 'The Swaen' malts, They're located in the Netherlands and so am I, Cheaper'n'fresher (I hope).
