I was calling it boil porn on another thread, just realized that if I searched the Interwebs long enough, that might actually be a thing. Ewwww....
off topic, sorry. but i thought a nice rolling boil helped to drive off DMS?
Firstly, DMS is only a factor on pils malts.
Secondly, due to the design on homebrewers vessels and the square cube law, homebrewers boil way too hard. If you are achieving more than 6% boil off, even will 100% pils there is no need to boil more than 60 minutes. Your beer will thank you for it.
I start hard then turn it down to 70% the rest of the time but yes I agree 90 minute boil at 100% loses about a gallon on mine
Yeah sure thing.
I could never really get a clear understanding what was a proper boil rate when I was starting so I kind of just eyeball it to finish as where I put the math, I should probably just adjust the math and turn down the boil.
Great Lakes Christmas Ale Clone
Edit: damn pic upload going so slow. Trust me it was close. Boiling now
Here's one of our latest. An English Old Ale with a quarter pound of Lyle's Black Treackle molasses.
And on a sidenote, in reference to boil/brew porn: The Finnish word for "to brew" is an endless source for sexual innuendo as it's homonymous with explicit act of er... love making.
ie. "There's nothing better than to brew with mates" has a wicked double meaning. Or "How much does it cost to brew at home?"...
There's even a craft beer company dedicated to naming their beers with stereotypical professions, like "The secretary" or the "Sales Manager". They will notify the public whenever they had been "brewing the secretary last night".
Is this from the Brew Meister?
Indeed it is.
Cream ale in the kettle
What is the kettle size for this?
That is a 10 gallon kettle with a little over 7 gallons boiling.
Wow serious volume - I manage 25 lt max but only manage to drink 20 lt before my liver complains... lol though I aspire to huge amounts my low volume concentrates my mistakes. My latest Extract brew is proving to be my best but am running out of it. I need to brew again.
Haha, dang livers! They just weren't made for enough abuse.
By the time I boil and account for all losses, I'll have 5 gallons in the keg.
That's too many losses for me... up your efficiency hehe
Here ya go Craigerr...some steamy, hot kettle porn!
