Re: New BIAB boiler build.

Made a bit of a start, end of the day wiring can be changed if needs be anyway. Had to put the SSR and heatsink in an unusual place, the bottom and the side of the box are reinforced with plastic ribbing, makes them hard to work on. Not the best hole cutting ever either, but heh I'm using a drill, a...

Re: New BIAB boiler build.

More parts arrived (more coming tonight, and maybe next month... lol):- parts1.jpg Also, couple of wiring plans (would love feedback from folks who've done this!). First up, with a voltage controller in both circuits, controlling during both the mash AND the boil:- ControlWiring.jpg Then, if I find ...

Re: Crossmyloof yeast

Now I have more experience with the flavour, it's a sort of blend made up of spice and bubblegum. Delicious on something like a Patersbier, not so nice in a British style. Glad the M36 is working for you. It's still my go to for British styles where I don't want a completely neutral yeast. Was amazi...

Re: New BIAB boiler build.

Just checking in with the latest pic of my build, from a few days ago. insulatedboiler.jpg I've also started gathering the parts to build a PID driven digital temperature and voltage controller. SSR.jpg So far, that's probably the most interesting part to have arrived, as other than that I have anot...

Re: Pocket Rocket & Moose (Mosaic single hop AIPA). AG Biab #12

Afraid not Jim, as it went outside and a scrap man whipped it away within minutes. lol Very efficient scrap men around here. I did however whip the ball valve tap off it, along with the fittings I had added myself.

It's not all gloom though, my new build is going very very well so far. :wink:

Pocket Rocket & Moose (Mosaic single hop AIPA). AG Biab #12

So, this turned out to be the last brew I ever made using my ACE. A cable inside burned right through, and the screw holding the crimp terminal in place was so corroded I couldn't get it off to put a new one on to fix it. IMG_20180513_123709.jpg Luckily it went 5 minutes before the end of a 75 minut...

Re: Goblin's Glod - AG #9

Did this recipe myself recently. It’s spot on. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180512/aeff5fa7f1a275b4f9be87b406164e4a.jpg Good looking pint there bud, glad the recipe worked for you too. This was mine last night, served cold from the fridge. :) GoblinsGlod.jpg It's a lovely pint for sure.

Re: Goblin's Glod - AG #9

Regarding your flameout addition - what is your process? In a commercial environment it’s common to leave the flameout hops for 30 mins, then cast to FV. The hops essentially have around 30 mins plus 45-60 mins while casting as contact time. I replicate this at home, but wonder what others do for t...

Re: Brewing Software Recommendations

Yeah, for hops I check the AA% and adjust it for the recipe if I need to (which I usually do), but it makes things much much easier for the grain. There's also sometimes the occasional hop missing (the last hop update seemed to add the main ones I found missing though, like Jester, Endeavour and Mos...

Re: Brewing Software Recommendations

Check the addons, nearly all UK malts can be added through them, same with most hops.

Re: New BIAB boiler build.

Finally added the insulation, including to the base this time. Lid and base I used the same camping mat I had used on my ACE boiler. The rest I cut more of that bubble stuff off the roll I bought for the ACE, 2 layers of it. IMG_20180520_142526.jpg IMG_20180520_141127.jpg IMG_20180520_141158.jpg I a...

Re: New BIAB boiler build.

Yeah, she started saying it before I built the false bottom etc, so I think she just liked the self boiling pan idea... lmao I've got the bug now to be honest, and would really like to build a 50 litre version! So fed up of struggling to get 23 litres into an FV without using tricks like sparging, d...

Re: New BIAB boiler build.

Thanks all. You're not wrong Haydnexport, I've already been thinking of building a 50 litre boiler. My thinking is to use this one for sparge water etc, a single pot system for my regular brew days (eg. The Angel Homebrew BrewDevil), and a 50 litre boiler for the occasional brew with a higher OG, or...

New BIAB boiler build.

So, my last brew day (BIAB #12, a mosaic APA, not logged on here), my ACE mash tun/boiler packed up. A cable to one of the elements burned right through. I tried to replace the terminal crimp on it, but the screw that held it on is kaput too... So, went ahead and started building a new boiler.... Wh...
