    Well I'm about 15 minutes into the mash and my newly modified HEATED mash tun is working according to plan. Going to hold at 152 for 45 minutes and let the temp ramp up tp 165 over 30 minutes before sparge.

    Brewed today as well, all done except that I am circulating PBW at 77C for a time. Here are my whirlpool hops, before, and after. They smell so good, it is a shame to bin them after:(

    I split the ibu’s three ways with 4 ounces each of Mosaic and Citra along with 8 ounces of whole Mandarina. Just finished the hopstand. Smells awesome.

    I thought that as well, maybe that bucket isn't as big as it looks...

    Well, Extractor completed yesterday and brew started today. Mashing in and Lautering done. Currently 20 minutes to go before boil is finished. Then cool to 77C , bung in the Citra and Mosaic - an industrial bucket load by usual standards but essential for this recipe. I hope my pump doesn't get clogged with the whirlpool.

    Well all done. Hit the PreBoil SG at 1.054 but not the volume expected - Grain absorption needs updating I think. Sample post boil OG lower at 1.050 - I had topped up volume a bit. 17Lt in the fermenter. Tilt reporting 1.037! maybe needing calibrating bit I can't be arsed to do it as I will take SG when I dry hop. Looks like primeordial soup but it's in the fermentation fridge set to 18.7C. Fingers crossed.
    New boil now on Thursday. What shall I brew? Something with Vienna and Red X in it I think - need to use them up.

    The extractor fan is NOT powerful enough. A lot of the steam that made it up the ducting condensed in the dips. At least not much dripped back into the pot which would be bad news.

    Mine is in the hands of the S-04 now, nice krausen building.
    Using the garage as a ferm chamber, keeping a close eye on the temperature.
    Smells hopperific!

    Mashed on Friday & Boiled on Saturday. Starter wasn't ready until Sunday. I used WLP007 instead & we're cooking this morning. My pre boil SG was 1.040 & 1.050 going into fermentation. Day 2 of fermentation is rolling now @ 62 F. @HighVoltageMan! Made a comment about WLP007 was prone to be an active fermenter so I hooked up a Blow Off hose to contain the mess but no blow off. No problem there. Looking forward to 1st pour.

    I used 007 too. It is not a puker. It behaves itself with no volcanoes. It’s an awesome yeast, a real workhorse.

    Hey @HighVoltageMan!, I was wondering how you determined the hop utilization rate of 3% during the whirlpool?

    You get any condensation in the extraction tube there Alan?

    Nice recirculation system very ingenious you get any extra efficiency?

    Yes big pools in the dips as thr fan could not extract the steam fast enough and that the trunking is not insulated enough. System scrapped but was worth the try. Yes the pump helps me get much crearer wort as I'm lautering over 20 minutes or so until the grain bed settles and filters well. I dont use a normal bazooka though. I use a 15in flexible stainless steel hose with the inner rubber hose removed and the farther end removed. I use the same pump for whirlpool.

    I have had a couple of pH meters and neither has been worth a sh*t.
    What meter do you have, and how simple/difficult is it to calibrate?

    I tried t vent from my basement too as there is no real ventilation. That is why I had to come up with this one. Recover almost a gallon of condensate every batch.
