Re: GF conical fermenter practical questions

To add to the bits of kit I have..... Motorcycle scissor lift. Simply jack the FV in the air when it comes to filling the keg = no pump required. ;)

Will sell you a whole set up.

Mine however is just the springer filter coil used with a made up blanking piece one end & the original black piece of silicone from the existing GF filter.

Re: Do you take account of break material in hydrometer samples?

Take a sample of wort, put this into a container, let the wort cool to the required temp for your hydrometer. Once cooled most of the break / debris should have sunk to the bottom of the container. Carefully decant clear wort into the hydrometer cylinder, take reading with hydrometer.

Re: GF connect software

Been using a GF for a good few years now with an iPhone, never had a problem with connection. Create a recipe on the phone or computer, connect the phone to the GF & your ready to go. If you don't have an iPhone just ebay a cheap old iphone5 version. I do believe there were a few issues with android...

Re: PicoBrew Model S

Re: PicoBrew Model S

All using the Autobrew function I've tried a few ways to mash, the worst has been around the low 50's on mash efficiency, the highest has been around 65 to 68% so a huge difference. Container with holes no mash bag, container with holes with mash bag. Container with no bottom & mash bag. Repeated th...
