I have a Blichmann I haven't touched since going induction.
what kettle do you have ? nosy
I'll thumb through my Zymurgy's, but I sure don't remember seeing that article. I dropped my BYO sub. I just didn't care for it anymore.
Yes, I'm in the same boat with our Colorado weather and brewing outside. I much prefer brewing indoors, and I do have a dedicated 240.
Thanks @Ozarks Mountain Brew! That's perfect.
Glad I posted about possibly going this route as I had zero knowledge of the magnetic deal.
Megapot 11 gallon. And a cheap flimsy single-layer stainless 5-gallon. Both work wonderfully on the induction rig.
BBPorter hot break
from earlier in the year
Looks warm there,,,green on the ground ...no column of steam keeping you from seeing the break...beauty!
Irish Blonde Ale! (Northern Brewer All Grain Kit)
Brewday Complete! Using the new Tilt Hydrometer. Interface with brewersfriend is flawless.
Ice bath chill down. 20 pounds of ice, boil kettle sitting on a cookie cooling rack, from boil to 64 in 20 minutes!
Mash Time. 152 target. Mashed in at 153. After 60 minutes, mash at 151.5! Driveway shoveled!
I little chilly out and a very slow sparge due to partially stuck. So it was time to get this baby to a boil fast. The ole Blichmann stepped up and we went from 130 (f) to boiling in 15 minutes!
Cold brew Morning! Got a couple inches of snow overnight so I’ll be shoveling that during the mash!
Makes me shiver looking at them Icey photos a very chilly brew!
Got some boil- and hot-break-porn for you. My first attempt at making a Yuengling clone.
I'm running my induction cooktop at 2800 watts. That c-clamp apparatus is my measuring stick. This was a simple single infusion but it sure made a pretty wort!
Looking forward to the taste comparison to the original.
Simple Homegrown Centennial 1 oz @60,@40,@20, @0 min. Trying to come up with a regular house brew to have on tap all the time and use up the HG Centennial for freezer room.
I love Centennial, but have always found beers brewed with them exclusively to have a certain sweetness that I don't care for. Not cloying, just something that seems to need a little bit of a bite. A small bittering addition of Chinook, CTZ, or even Magnum seems to cut through that for me. Have you had a similar experience?
Our HG are light on IBU so I keep the chloride/sulfate ratio on the bitter side and mash around 149. This batch was different though as I mashed in at 130 and slowly ramped up to 156 over 1 hours time with rims. Never noticed a sweetness before. But this batch some how came out with a 89% brewhouse efficiently. I normally run in 70 to 75% area. WTF went on there I have no Idea, but it should be all good.
Wow! Take it when you can get it
Likely the ramp through the peak range of both Beta and Alpha. No compromise with a ramp in that range.
I have played with temps before but never just took the easy street and slow ramped in that manner. Maybe another lesson in the school of keep it simple stupid!
Boil on pearl pale ale. Right on target atm.
Let's see if this works. It's kinda long but sweet
Load and go
