That hadn't dawned on me.
Set it up in the morning. Go to work. Ready to go, when you get back. Nice one.

Yeah, I had to work backwards from the weekend to allow for kettle souring in the next couple of days. Hence the extended daytime mash.

:D :D :D
I have just awoke with beer ready to boil. Stunning. Big grin.

Setup just took 1/2 hour last night. Brilliant!

Well this has been good.

Setup too 1/2 hour.
Boil 'day' took 3.5 so a saving in time.

Now I perfected my anti-boilover lid, we are almost fully automated.

But the person that said pellet hops are ok in an MJ were fibbling. We know who you are :D

Just too much got away. Probably won't use pellets again.

I’ve had over 100g in there with no issues. Usually use it for the hop stand and drop the earlier editions straight in anyway.

How many hops were you using?

200g then. All in the spider?

Never tried that much all in one spider but I am happy with up to 100g going loose anyway. Typically the early and mid hops go streight in loose for me.

If you want everything in the spider maybe two spiders will see you right. They are cheap enough :D

Sorry should have been clearer. That was 100 g total.

This isn't a volume problem. Its getting through the mesh that's issue.
MJ is 800 microns. I think we need to be down at 400 perhaps even 200.

The hops after boil looked like a green milk shake.

You mention dropping hops straight in. Are you filtering these out or do they end up in your FV?

I use these with pellets and they work a treat, are cheap and easy to clean: https://www.angelhomebrew.co.uk/en/filt ... p-bag.html

essentially the first 50g or so i just chuck straight in loose. The rest go in the MJ , usually for hop stand.

the ones i throw straight in - a lot of them will end of in the FV as i don't filter other than leaving the last couple of litres in the FV. but most will be in the MJ.

so a bit of leakage from the MY should be fine id say-

I thought I was the only one who didn't worry about a bit of 'extra nutrient' in the FV, but this got me twitching.

I am ok with that. Good to know. Thanks.
