Abort, pause, resume..

Unread postby judgecc » Sun Feb 14, 2016 1:23 pm

Hello all..
Last night I dough in 12kg malt with 58liters of water. Overnight mashing.
20c 180min
20c 180min
64c 100min
76c 180min
76c 180min
96% mash efficiency, dooh, calculated 70%. Stupid. Well filled up with 10liters of water to almost correct pre boil OG, then tappped of 10liters for starters, pet bottles placed in fridge.

I want to ask you guys a couple of questions
I usually have to abort my mash schedule and do the rest of brew day in manual.
Its alright, but it would be helpful if the braumeister could jump over stages and go to boil option or last mash step.. Getting me?
I also want to know, how do you pause the machine without having it beeping continously, is it possible?
Thanks for input guys..

I don't own a BM (yet!) but skipping some mash steps just requires you putting in 0 mins for the steps you wish to skip, unless I'm not getting you...

Doubt it would kick into boil without manually interaction.

Also 360mins at 76C, wow! That will create a lot of unfermentable sugars will it not? Will produce a very sweet and full bodied beer, if that's what you wanted.

You misunderstood me. I want to skip the step if im awake before time is up.
Of course it dont boil before ive told it malt pipe is out and so on..
What I want to do is to keep my boil schedule and hop alerts instead of doing boil manual..
Nope its a mashout temp, choose 76 and not 78 because of risk of astringency at 78c during that long time ..
You can read up about overnight mashing here
viewtopic.php?pid=246 if you like..
And heres some info about conversion

I did an overnight mash once but that was with a cool box mashtun, so it obviously lost it's temp overnight - still produced a much higher efficiency though, something I'll definitely experiment with when I'm able to get back into brewing again. I've got Palmer's book, just need to re-read it again! I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will reply to your query. :beerbang:

Yeah it's my first overnight but not my last. Pretty sweet to start boil when your up..
Its so easy with the BM humming on and keeping temps.
Thanks..
Cheers.

Put a fire alarm close to the bm if you do overnight mash! If a small leak from the tap or the pumps drains the liquid you could probably start a fire.

judgee, if I am reading this right, I had the same thing happen one morning after an overnight mash. I had my mash schedule programed in and I "thought" I had all the minutes calculated out to the right hour when I would get up and start the boil. I miss calculated one whole step of an extra 180 minutes so when I got up, I still had to wait for it to finish the mash. I did not know of any way to change the schedule while It is running so I just had some coffee and waited for it to finish so I could do the boil.
The only downside to it was I did not finish as early as I thought I would but no biggie. :cheers:

Why not create another recipe with all the mash times at 0. Then cancel the mash and start that new recipe when you are ready to boil.
