trying to clone obsidian

i've been working on a clone for obsidian stout (deschutes brewery). i found an extract recipe on the web, and beer tooled it into an all grain. i brewed it, and it just didn't seem right. i had heard that the folks at deschutes are very helpful, so i sent them an email along with my best guess. the...

Re: IBU numbers

Please fill in the blanks, so I can try to get up to speed with some of you better brewers. ibu means international bitterness unit. if i ...

i agree with slothrob.

i would like the ingredients browser to stay open after clicking 'add' (as it does now). but it would be nice if all open btp windows closed when exiting the program.

yeah, there should.... that's what regulators are supposed to do. they regulate the pressure. not to put you down, you probably have everything hooked up right, but let me ask you a few questions to make sure. 1. regulator attached to co2 tank, main valve open. right? 2. output leads to input on keg...

btp is the first brewing software i have used

hey bill, as you know i have also been pushing for the timer feature. prior to btp, and now, i keep a log of my brew day. i hope to ditch my lab notebook, and keep it all on my pc. for me, in the old days (bc - before children). i could brew, listen to car-talk, wait wait don't tell me, what d'ya kn...

i have a minibrew 6.5

i loose about .5 gallon every time i dump the trub. which is about the same amount i loose to racking. i have been scaling up my recipes to 6 gallons to compensate for 1 dump and racking. i rarely do lagers, and since i got the conical, i don't rack to a carboy for secondary... i just dump. one of t...

eek mice!

one of the reasons that i brew beer is to save money, another is because i make better beer than what is readily available here behind the zion curtain. of course saving money is good, its also fairly easy. for example: newcastle brown ale costs about $2.35/ bottle (~$25/gal) at the state liquer sto...

force carbonation

i keg. i hate to bottle. what i typically do after racking to the keg, is set my regulator to the correct pressure for my beer (btp will figure this out for you). shake rattle and roll until i can no longer hear gas leaving my tank. stand the keg up in the beer fridge, and wait. in a few days (4 or ...

Re: white is neutral, black hot, green ground

Erm.... black to ground? If wired correctly, black should be a hot wire, which should go to the "line" terminal. Running a hot to the ground could prove mighty interesting :shock: Derek actually, it would just blow the breaker (that's what they are for after all). bill's advice is sound. there are ...

The one thing is that Mash Temperature, but not Strike Temperature, is displayed in the Schedule display, but I need to know both. I just open the edit window for the Mash In step to get the Strike Temperature, but that's annoying when my hands are wet or sticky. that's what i'm talking about 8) i'...

white is neutral, black hot, green ground

black from the breaker box to hot (edit - sorry typo). black from cooler goes to cooling, black from heater goes to heating. tie the neutrals (white) together with a wire nut or bus bar. all greens go to ground. make sure controller is rated for the voltage and amperage of the heating and cooling un...

nice feature i would like to see

i brewed yesterday, and as i brewed, i was thinking about how i would like to be able to use btp. it would be nice if the schedule would give me the strike temp, and time estimates for tap water to strike temp given the heating vessel (right there in the schedule page). same for sparging, and bringi...
