Equipment / Re: 10 gal BIAB Bag
« Last post by Roger on January 18, 2020, 07:49:38 PM »
The material I use to make my bags is "voile" material usually used for making curtains. I get mine at Fabric Ville. It's very strong and fine mesh. It's made out of nylon or polyester so it's fine to use in the mash. Not sure about boiling it but I imagine it's fine. I double sew it around the perimeter and I always make a 10-12 gallon batch with 20-30 pounds of dry grain so the wet grain must be twice that and I've never had a blow out...

I got mine from Mashed In in NS. Unfortunately it looks like they've stopped making them. Too bad because it's been a great bag. They do seem to be selling the material on their Etsy page if you did want to make one

I do know folks that do 10G BIAB, with like a big cage that sits under the mash bag, and pulley hoist thing that attaches to the cage.

My advice- get/make a cooler mash tun- much easier, than hauling out 10G worth of wet grain, you wont ever want to go back to BIAB.

Noble grape is having their no tax weekend sale. Starts today and runs until Saturday. Pretty much everything in the store is %15 off. So might be a good opportunity to pick up some goodies...

Nice good info cheers dude!

one more question- do noble grape stock liquid yeasts in store like wlp 002, or do I need to order online for liquid yeasts?

cheers

Yes, but their stock can be a little bit of a crap shoot as it gets picked over. Also check the dates, they sometimes have expired yeast in their fridge.

Equipment / 10 gal BIAB Bag
« Last post by redroast on January 16, 2020, 02:32:10 PM »
Hello All

I recently stepped up to 10 gallon batches. Figured I would stick with BIAB as I am comfortable with that.

 I already went through one lousy bag that I bought on Amazon and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a decent bag for an 19 gallon kettle I could get in Canada.

At this point, I suspect I am likely going to have to make my own. But I'm not much for sewing.

Thanks

Glad you made it!

1. Noble grape is a good spot for local stuff with a decent selection in store they can also order most anything you need. There's also Scoop and Save, and Wine Kits both have an ok home brew selection.

2. Everwood brew shop is based outside of Halifax and have a great selection for on line orders. Sometimes if you post that you're gonna order something someone in the club will piggyback on the order that way you can save on shipping.

3. Cheapest propane by far is Costco. You can get co2 fills done at Atlantic Fire and Safety,  Glen Kennedy (506-458-9750) or if you prefer to swap your co2 canisters that can be done at Noble Grape.

4. Second hand fidges can be found on kijiji, Habitat For Humanity Restore there's another place I'm sure I just can't remember right now what it's called.

5. Best commercial brewery in town is kind of a loaded question. Almost all the local breweries were former club members so you can't really go wrong with any of them. But if you're looking for hoppy masterpieces I'd suggest Trailway, if you're into more Belgian styles I'd recommend Grimross, if you like both hoppy and wild offerings there's Niche but you can only get that at select bars in town. There's Maybee Brewing they have a bit of everything. Greystone is kinda hit and miss I've had really good ones there and sometimes it's just mediocre. Then you have our oldest craft brewery Picaroons they specialize in English style beers heavy on the Ringwood...

Hey Folks,

I made it to freddy and I am nearly unpacked, and starting to think about getting my first batch out here brewed. Lots of questions!

1. is there a local store for emergency dry yeast packets, airlocks etc? I see noble grape sells liquid yeasts on website, and kegging hardware- Can you get that stuff in their freddy store?

2. which is the best maritimes online homebrew store for speciality yeasts etc?

3. where's the best spot in town for cheap propane and co2 fills?

4. I couldn't fit my fermentation chamber and keg fridge in the move. Any good spot around for buying 2nd hand or cheap small fridges except kijjijj?

5. whats the best commercial brewery in town?
