Hi,

Done a quick search, but cantfind any info specifically for an equipment profile for the Guten 50L Brewery (aka HopCat). Can anybody help me with this?

Would appreciate some help in setting up. Been using a grainfather 23L, but swapped to the guten 50L. Want to be sure I start ok close.

Help appreciated.

Regards, Kevin.

Your new system looks very much like your grainfather, only larger.  I would suspect that if you took your grainfather profile and adjusted for volume, dead space, boil off rate, and trub loss you would be very, very close.  All of these parameters you can easily test using a 'dry run' with just water.

With some fairly simple measurements you can create your own profile which will be far more accurate than anything you get from someone else.

These tutorials will walk you through it...

Thanks guys...was just seeing if anyone had already set a profile up with sucess.
I will give it a go, and take a look at those vids too. Appreciate the help. Will do a 'dry run' for boil off, and the rest will fall into place I guess over the next brew or two.

Cheers, Kev.
