Darrell thinks that being greedy results in un-clear beer. I do not believe this. Due to my false bottom being 1/8" holes on 3/16" centers my sparging carries a lot of husks and flour into the boiler. I use irish moss and even my hefe-weizens will clear. IMO it does not matter how much is left under the FB. In a perfect world it might, but here on earth it doesn't. Due to the diminishing ability of sparge water to dissolve sugar as the sparge progresses the only point in measuring the exact amount in sparge water is to waste time in waiting for it to drain. I always sparge until I collect enough wort in the boiler to give me my final desired volume. My tun remains fairly full of sparge water when I unload it. Lance Harbison Return to table of contents

Date: Sun, 17 Feb 2008 11:07:32 -0600 From: Michael Stumpf <mjstumpf at pobox.com> Subject: lending library Is there a lending library? I'd like to check out some of the past issues of zymurgy and brew your own, but they simply aren't available anywhere at any price. Nothing specific, I'd just like to browse to look for useful nuggets. Actually there was one specific thing - an old issue of zymurgy that apparently did a careful comparison of burner efficiency and delivered heat. I'd rather learn from someone else than blow $50 on propane and $300 on burner heads to reproduce the experiment. Return to table of contents
