HERMs Brewing instructions

A walk through on the basics of using a HERMs system (Heat Exchange Recirculating Mash) ...


  1. Gotta sanitize every tool you use to you're brew.

  2. Great video! Thanks!

  3. This is the best video on youtube about mashing out your own full grain brew. Thank you!!!

  4. good video, you dont ramble on like so many others

  5. best video , watched over 100 , u make it simple but provide so much information its unreal.

  6. Israel Gonzalez

    cool video, lots of tips.

    tyvm mate its much more simpler than I had thought well explain and I think I'm going have to have a crack after these next too brews

  9. I was thinking of fly sparking exactly like that myself. At least I know it works. Cheers, mate 👍🍻

    Awesome video. Very informative and you went into detail to explain what things and processes were doing. This is exactly what I needed. Hope to brew my first all grain batch in the next week or so!

  11. You have a copper heating element in that cooler to keep the temp up?
    What about making only total 5.lbs grain, mash will be less water, and using
    a big kettle on gas stove to keep temp. up?

  12. so about 3 lbs of total grain(s) to the gal ok,,,good video,,I have some questions and will start with a few,, I am making an alternative beer ,this includes alt ingredients as well as process,,I want to use non malted grains to get the flavour and colour,i will use a substitute for sugar and hops but my question is if im only interested in extracting flavour and colour from the grain(s) then do i still need to go through this mashing/steeping temp or can i just boil? and if so can i use less lbs of grain? i will ask my other questions later provided i get a reply from you,,thank you

  13. This is the first mash video I've seen where the sparge temperature parameters are explained. Good job and thanks.

  14. Very well explained, I searched why the wort needed to be poured inside twice or three times and couldn't find an answer, I now know is because you don't want to get all the sediment from the begining, thanks

    thank you.
    this video explains a lot which is hard to understand with most written explanations.

  16. Thanks for sharing your knowledge good Sir.

  17. guy knows his stuff AND is cool as shit! awesome vid.

  18. Great explanations and details. Thanks!

  19. My efficiency is 67% to 65% with a batch sparge (for a 7-8 % beer). IMO the efficiency is not that important as long as it is constant so you can plan around it. sure you can save a little $ on grain with a higher efficiency but the important issue is that it is constant so you know how your mash will come out. I wouldn't waste a ton of time trying to up it. From my experience it is what it is. just deal with it. also remember the more grain you use the lower your efficiency will be.

  20. I usually get between 60-65. I got around the same result using your fly sparge technique.

    Now I suspect the grain mill from my LHBH to be sub-par. We'll find out soon because I'll be using my brand new monstermill on my next brew! Thanks again!

  21. glad I could help. for me I only gain a few points in efficiency fly sparging compared to batch sparging. how bad is your efficiency?

  22. at least you have an idea of what is involved and can better determine whether or not to start mashing…personally I feel I get a better tasting beer then using extracts. though some of the best beers I have ever made have been partial mashes

  23. it was a very nice day, and I was glad to spent it brewing

    J- It was a little fast paced for me, but that's on me. Looked like a great day to be outside making beer

    I love that all you guys post videos on how to do all grain. One of these days when I finally convert this process I'll go back and re-watch all this and it will finally be educational ha ha.

  26. Thanks so much! We've been having efficiency problems with our batch sparge technique, and we thought that fly sparging required alot of fancy equipment. We'll try your technique next time!!
