Figured I would start a new thread for the new year.
I did my first batch on my modified system yesterday, a APA with Columbus and Galaxy. All in all it went well. The new Auber EZ Boil controller was amazing. I set up a rather extensive mash schedule and it stepped right through it holding for the appropriate time and moved to the next temperature as expected. At the end it held at 170 till I removed the bag and hit "run" again. Nice to be able to run a step mash hands off.
Additionally the Easy Dens worked great and was perfect for taking readings during the brew day. I have been playing with that some on commercial beer and I find that when I expected a beer to be in the 1.014-16 range it was 1.010 and beers I assumed were 1.010 were around 1.005.
I am hoping to get a pilsner or helles going this week also.
So, who is brewing?
