    David, can you point me in the direction of your tea strainer please. I tried using the one I have with my first GF brew (yey!) and while it's clear one is very useful, the mesh was too fine in mine. I already tried searching "tea strainer" on well known sites with no success as yet. Thanks.

    Always a real pleasure to watch a new video from you David! Here is a subject suggestion. As a beginner, I have a bit of problem to understand the right adjustments to make in my equipment settings and profile. An explanation of every and each variable to input in the Grainfather web software would be more than appreciated. Thank you so much, very helpful.

    Thanks for another great video. I have pretty much always at least hit my expected gravity, with the exceptions being a high wheat bill or getting to the bottom of a pre-crushed bag of grain. I'd have likely just chucked all of my grist in, in one go, or rushed the sparge had i not landed on your channel very early on during my brewing attempts. Happy brewing!

    The days of being over target gravity are always the best compared to having less and more volume. (calcutator fails) Adding a small amount of water to compensate is such a joy compared to watching grass grow. (evaporation)
    Just makes the brewday longer.
    That reminds me, i need a video about how to make free time to brew without a cut in income XD
    2 brewdays this year so far, kinda sad

    Helpful video thanks David but I'm still unclear on efficiencies. The G/F book details two efficiencies, one is on preboil SG and volume, the second on fermenter SG and volume. Of these, which is Brewhouse efficiency and which is mash efficiency? Cheers.

    Hi David, what are your thoughts on using a refractometer to measure final gravity? I have always understood that a refractometer is only used for measuring original gravity, but have recently learned that some people are using various calculators to factor in the alcohol content when taking a final gravity reading.

    Great video! I heard somewhere that if you're mash efficiency is over 80% you are extracting more tannins. What are your thoughts on that? I'm not sure it would be that noticeable IMO cheers David! 👍🍻

    Hi David,

    Excellent video, truly enjoyed it.

    Just a wee note on the closing statement, it might be worth asking folk to check the bell icon to be notified of new videos 🙂 otherwise they might miss out when you post! YouTube's algorithm can be an odd mistress.

    Hi David
    Swedish follower here, I have a grainfather myself and I always find your videos very useful.
    A few months ago, I visited the Griffin brewery in Chiswick, London (Fullers). The following might not be exactly right but at least roughly…When they brew their excellent bitters, Chiswick, Pride and ESB they mash in two mashtuns and then collect the first runnings from both in one copper and when filled up they continue collecting in a second one until sg approx. 1.005. Both coppers then boil with the same hop additions. After the boil the two worts are blended to make the different bitters. It is called parti-gyle and I guess this is nothing new for you. I wonder, did you ever try something similar with the grainfather?

    Excellent advice and explanations all around. I had this topic on my to do list for my channel for a little while now. I get questions on this stuff regularly. I might just point them to this video instead of making my own. Thanks!

    Hi David

    Thanks for many of your videos lots of good info and tips!

    I have a question about PPG (points per pound per gallon) in fermentablets in resepies on the grainfather. How do you calculate this? I have watched On Google an YouTube without finding good information maybe you could hjelp me. Is there a formel converting fra US to metric?

    Regards
    Finn

    Another really informative video. I am relatively new to brewing but will in the very near future be investing in a grainfather and have watched almost all your videos, they are really excellent for a novice brewer and learning from your wealth of experience is fantastic.Something if possible would be really beneficial would be a video on conditioning and bottling/kegging but more specifically how and when this is done with different strength beers. I would be most appreciative if you could do a video along these lines in the future.
