Where To Measure The Temperature In The Mash

This question comes up a lot with our customers, and getting an accurate reading can be a challenge for beginning brewers.  If you are like me, you're reading the temperature from a handheld device, and then measuring the temperature coming out from under the mash tun plate, or in our case the grain basket in one of our all-in-one brewing systems, and they can be different.  So which one is correct?

Assembling the Temperature Control Kit

This video demonstrates how to assemble the temperature control kit.  The temperature control kit allows the flow of water through the jacket or coil of our Unitank/Unibräu Pro brewing system to effectively regulate the fermentation temperature.  It can be used with our ETC controller, and for breweries that experience extreme temperature change can be used in conjunction with our heating elements to safely regulate temperature without killing the yeast in your fermenter.

A Beer Bust: When Beer Goes Bad

It’s happened to all of us. You open our fridge and tucked back in a dusty corner is a bottle of homebrew you made in the past using your small batch brewing system. You’re not sure when you made it, or even what it is, but maybe you’re out of that latest batch of the IPA you made, or you’re just trying to clear out the fridge, so you grab that bottle, pop the lid, and pour it into the glass. You’re treated to a funky aroma, and a kind of stale taste. Bummer, the beer’s gone bad. But why? Beer can go bad for a variety of reasons, so join Bräu Supply as we look at a few reasons....
