Vessels are brewing vessels such as a kettle, mash tun, and cooler.
|The various fields in the "Vessel" editor are used for the following purposes:
Here are the basic steps:
- Heat a specific volume of water (measure accurately) in a separate vessel to a temperature in the range normally used for mashing (140-160F or 60-70C)
- Pour the water into the vessel to be tested.
- Check the temperature after 5 minutes in the test vessel.
- Check again after 65 minutes. This measurement determines the vessels heat loss.
Use volumes and temperatures closest to those that you use in your mashing process to achieve more accurate simulation. Enter the measurements in the vessel editor window and the vessel heat capacity will be calculated and inserted for you.
