Recipe was quite a simple one

Pale malt
Crystal
Chocolate.
Hops
Willliamette.
Bobek
Wilko's yeast.
The only thing that was different I tried Harris starbrite.
It was stronger than usual though. This is probably down to not having the overnight/brew and ferment dialled in yet.

Is Harris starbrite the Vegan one? That shouldn't affect it.

Are you sticking with fermentation in the BM?

I can't believe I have missed this for so long. I quite like not having a huge brewday and all the extra cleaning up.

Excellent news. I did wonder if you had been put off by "dreamy beer".

You might see on another thread I am looking for a rising table to make life easier.

Just running a double brew to test a thought.. "does the trub rob the hop flavours"

Brew A brewed in the BM20 as normal.
Brew B day two before pitch, dropped the wort out to a couple stainless buckets (thanks icebox - you started this), rinsed (not a deep clean) the BM and then poured back.

Let's see...

I know reading this some off your are screaming..... Let me know what you think 🤔

Hi Mash

I am sold on the overnight and ferment thing.
My beer just got a public outing:
https://abingdonblog.co.uk/?p=29106

And went down very well (all gone)
Not sure I would be pulling it out and putting it back in again may as well go srtraight into a fermenter.

I too am sold. Very sold.

This test is more for me to prove to myself there isn't an issue, if I am honest.

It is the final check before a mod. I am adding an independent heating pad to the bottom of the BM. 240v/60w. Last few brews have been in prototype mode.

I bought a couple of stainless buckets for the rinse and return which made it very easy. Lower pumped tap helps. Really surprised at want a small amount of trub that came through.

Added course Irish moss direct to the brew to hold it (trub) together.... Might have helped.
