Sparging those grains in a three-tier homegrown tower!
Hot water against plastic… aren’t you worried about bpa getting into your brew? Doesnt? seem too healthy to me.
Recirculating isn’t so much of a sparge technique (which helps with sugar extractions). Rather, recirculation causes the wort to clear itself up. By repeatedly? puring your wort over the grain bed, the grains serve as a natural filter by grabbing small particles.
how big is the false bottom and where did you? get it
Why did he transport his sparge water from a metal pot, which he used to heat it, into a plastic bucket? before sparging it onto the mash tun. Maybe for measurment? Can anyone comment.
“it goes brittle after a few…….? hundred batches” lol thats awesome
Clear no, husk free yes. You’re going to clear it with hot break in the kettle anyway. My beers finish crystal clear with? no astringency.
Really? Your wort runs clear after a half gallon. Do you mean Chuck-free or clear? I use a pitcher that is about a half gallon in size and I usually go through about 5 of those at least before my grain bed is set up just right to where? my wort is looking real clear. This is typical of what I’ve seen others do as well on other systems. Whats your secret?
I never had to vorlauf? more than a half gallon to get it to clear.
Well then you are correct, he recirculated a half gallon of wort. Would you really call that recirculating? Isn’t the point of the vorlauf to run it clear before? you go to the kettle instead of just pull a half gallon and then call it good. But hey, it’s not my system and if it works for him then great. I was just confused by him calling it recirculating. As long as he’s making good beer, keep doing it that way.

What makes you think he poured the 1/2 gallon into the kettle? Of? course he poured it back over the grainbed.
i’m? baffled. when you recirc the beers goes back into the lauter tun not the brew kettle until the beer is running clear. Vorlauf it is called. It also helps set your grain bed.
That’s exactly it. Some folks will use a pump and continue to put he runoff? back into the mash tun until the runoff is clear.
love the dog?
Get a separate fridge, and put it on? an external temp control.
I’m jealous of your temp controlled room. Unfortunately I live in an? apartment and can’t do that.
So far, because of temperature, I’ve only been able to make Ales and Stouts, no Lagers.
Got any advice on how I could make Lagers without keeping my house at 45 degrees?
that is? a sick temp control you have going on that ist vid
damned dogs! keep the videos coming man!
what do you recommend for a newb?
i just made a brew with a mr. beer setup i got for christmas and i’m ready to start a real batch.? i’d like it to come out something like fat tire or newcastle but i’m lost on mashing process. also, have you ever done any apple cider brewing? my parents have an apple orchard and while i love apple pie, it would be nice to have something to drink with it. thanks bro
very nice man? I learn something from the brew master. good jobbbbbbbb
Good advice, but I think I’d rather drink than? play with a lawnmower…
dude. stop drinking and clean up your yard…. haha. good luck with your beer.?
Yep. Backyard. In? front, it’s a tract. In the back, it’s like walking back in time.
Is this all at your House John?? Looks like you have quite the homebrewery!
