Preventing scorched wort and burnt flavor in your beer

After four weeks of eager anticipation, there are few things more devastating to a brewer than discovering an unwanted microbial infection or tasting burnt/smokey notes in your latest brew. The BIAC takes you a long way towards preventing the unwanted infection, since by boiling in the fermenter it is heat sanitized. However, one needs to be careful...

Heating and chilling methods for the 5BBL BIAC

There has been some discussion online about the benefit of circulating wort inside the BIAC fermenter during chilling to reduce the chill time so we put it to the test in our largest system, the 5BBL BIAC. We tested on the 5BBL, since being the largest system we currently offer, it has the lowest chilling surface area to wort ratio and therefore (all other factors being equal) the longest chill time of the BIAC systems.

Maintaining low fermentation temperatures without a fridge

Controlling temperature during fermentation is very important for best flavor and batch-to-batch consistency. Most often, home brewers have controlled fermentation temperatures by regulating the room temperature or placing their fermenter in an old fridge that can be turned on and off. While these methods work, they have several drawbacks including:

Operating the 240V/30amp Brewing Power Controller

The 240V Brewing Power Controller (BPC) is designed to give safe and easy access to 240V/30amp power in the home. Without it, one would either have to use 120V power or plug a heating element directly into a 240V socket. Using 120V power (like is found in standard wall sockets) only delivers about 1500W power, and would take a very long time to heat water. On the other hand...

If the temperature gets too warm, off-notes will be produced that will spoil the flavor you are trying to achieve. Too cold...

How to build a temperature-controlled closet or pantry

Precise temperature control during fermentation is a critical aspect of brewing high quality beer but it can be challenging to achieve, especially in warm climates where cold tap water is not available. BREWHA's Water, Beer and Wort Chiller is an excellent chiller that is perfect for regulating fermentation by running cold water through the 3-in-1 jacket. Some brewers, however, may want to regulate temperature through a cold room.
