Bulldog brewer user questions.

Postby Midlife » Mon Mar 13, 2017 11:27 pm

Hello, used my bulldog for the first time, was very impressed. Saved me time, a good couple of hours. Also I was all in one place and no lugging around pots and hot water. I have a couple of questions for bulldog users...

The steel pin i placed in the centre pipe for the mash so grain didn't go down it, do you keep it in for the boil? Also I found the boil a bit too vigorous, so I wondered what KW people use to get a nice rolling boil.

Cheers.

Hi,
I've done about a dozen brews in mine. I don't always have the malt pipe in during the boil but if I do I keep the pin in place as occasionally you get spurts of hot wort if you don't. I brew in the kitchen with the back door open to let the steam out. I generally use 1800w for the boil, but occasionally need to up it if there's a breeze coming in the door. I keep meaning to make an insulating jacket for it but never seem to get round to it.....
Cheers
Def.
