    Dogfish Head and Boston Brewing to merge

    It is known that Boston Brewing didnt want to get into the business model of "craft" brewing but just wanted to do the styles that made them Dogfish has turned on the small brewers by threatening them with lawsuits How will they bring beer growth?

    RoboBrew, Grainfather etc

    Yes I do. Great system, brew day and cleaning are a breeze. Really helps being able to repeat a brew over and over when it comes to mash temp. As long as you are ok with batch size limitations. So 10g batches are not really an easy thing. The notes below should be taken as tips and warnings...

    BeerSmith 3 Thoughts

    So has anyone installed the new BeerSmith yet? What are your thoughts? Is it worth the update? Im a little hung up over the tiered plans. $35 for the software to only get minor updates is harsh, but $15 a year with no promise of a major update also seems a waste.

    so the longer hose and making sure there was ZERO pressure in the keg to begin with worked 10x better. Still had to go up 10psi from the chart but it was a success!!!

    Gravity Adjustment Spreadsheet

    So in another thread we learned of @Brian Pylant 's shoot from the hip method of adding DME if he missed his pre-boil gravity. With my luck I would end up with an extra 3 gallons between adding DME then water to hit the mark right. That being the case I dug around and created a spreadsheet...

    So to elaborate I really missed my Pre Boil gravity on my last batch. Found that BeerSmith doesnt have a tool to calculate how much DME to add. Had to break out the Google, find the1 formula and make a spreadsheet. So more of what i was thinking was not only what to do but provide verified...

    DIY Quick Carb

    So my initial run came out flat, however i think i know why. It seems my pump generates more pressure in the line than what the Blichmann charts calls for. Once I upped the presser by 10psi i can see the gas mixing in. This may take some trial and error
