Nice. Thanks for posting.
Thanks for the video. I really appreciate your insight!
good video, ben!however, for a five gallon batch, mr malty says you need a litre of starter, not a pint. a litre of water + 100 g DME will make a 1040 wort... it's a 10:1 ratio of ml water:g DME. same techniques in your video, just differnet amount fo ingredients. also, put the DME in the water BEFORE boiling... will avoid clumpage issues. cheers!
So Ben you didn't really oxygenate the wort after the boil: is this unnecessary with the stir plate?I've always shaked in a coke bottle a couple times, squeezed out the air, let more in and shaked again to try and oxygenate the wort.I have just got my hands on a stir plate so am interested in your response.
Sean, I was just going by what Palmer instructs in How To Brew. But thanks for the added note.And it's funny you mention adding the dme to cold water. I do that when brewing and I've gotten crap for it . . .people saying that dme doesn't dissolve faster in cold water. GKP, The stir plate is what does oxygenate the wort, plus, having the paper towel on top will allow "some" O2 to get through. If you don't have a stir plate then just shake it up like you are now.
Thanks for the response.... I'll give it a try with the stir plate next time
