Brewing A Gluten Free Extract Beer For Beginners - Boil Off Rate & Volume Of Extract
This short video provides a new brewer the step-by-step process of adding different sources of fermentable sugar to the wort, followed by starting the boil. There are two factors discussed in this episode: the boil off rate and the volume of extracts added to the wort. The preboil volume in the brew kettle or large stock pot needs to take into account how long and how rapidly the wort will be boiling. This ensures reaching the target post-boil volume. Additionally, any extracts added to the wort will increase the volume in the brew kettle or large stock pot. This can be an important factor in the calculations for a recipe.
