Re: Pre-boil Volume

I finally managed to get a brew done yesterday, a St. Louis Lager. It was my first time brewing with the urn for over 18 months so I was expecting some dramas along the way. I ended up with 2L too much pre-boil so I changed my grain absorption rate from 0.96 to 0.60, this should get me pretty close ...

Re: Pre-boil Volume

Thanks Jeff. I forgot to mention those preference settings. For brew in a bag, mine are set to 0.75L/Kg & 0.96L/Kg respectively. ( Recipe file I sent to you ) For traditional 3V brewing, it is the same as you, 0.75L/Kg & 1.0L/KG. I'll post my results back here when I do a brew in a bag, full volume ...

Re: Pre-boil Volume

Sorry Jeff, I sent you the wrong file but this one will do anyway. In the collected column is 26.53L. This will be Kettle volume @100degC 26.96L. My preboil I assume is 26.53L after my sparge or the same without the sparge. I think I'm working it out now. If I was to do a full volume mash, no sparge...

Re: Pre-boil Volume

Hi Jeff.
I have saved the recipe to a folder on my computer but cannot seem to work out how to send it to you via your profile contact. Do you have a personal email I can send it to.
cheers,
Brian

Re: Pilsner Mashing Times

You can make a great pilsner with a 60 minute single-infusion mash. Pilsner malt is high in enzymes because it is lightly kilned and tends to convert very easily. Some brewers might choose to mash longer to try and sqeeze a little more efficiency out of the mash, since Pilsners are often mashed at ...

Re: Pre-boil Volume

Thanks Jeff. I'm trying to work out which kettle volume is my pre-boil after sparge if I do one. On the main page, you have the columns Kettle volume@100degC 26.96L Boil duration 1hr Water added @20degC 0.0L Evap/Hour @100degC 3.0L Final volume @20degC 23.0L Or when I open the schedule page, I see 2...

Pre-boil Volume

Hi guys.
Just to clarify, if I am doing a sparge, in BTP, is my pre-boil volume the kettle volume 26.96L @100degC or is it 25.94L in my schedule tab that's in vessel column.
Batch is,
23L
Boil off, 3L/h
Trub loss, 3L
Cheers

Simple APA Recipe

Can someone post a tried & true American Pale Ale recipe showing losses to kettle, adjustments for losses etc so I can input it to my recipe. I’m still battling with discrepancies from another programme trying to brew using BTP. Final gravity of competitors software, 1.045, 4.5% ABV but I get 1.043 ...

My brew day woes continue

Hi guys. I'm wondering if anyone could possible steer me in the right direction in trying to dial in BTP using my Braumeister. I did a simple APA today & aiming for 24.0L @ 20°C into my fermenter. My efficiency was set to 70% & my volume adjustment was set to -4.0L for my trub loss. My actual figure...

Thanks again slothrob.
I think I'll be pretty close with these settings on my next brew day.

Re: BTP losses to trub & chiller

I changed one of my mill rollers from knurled to fluted but have suffered from efficiency problems ever since. I keep ending up with too much volume at the end of the boil with too low a gravity. I'm over sparging for some reason as well. My boil off rate was set too high as well compounding the pro...
