hehe thought you guys would get a kick outta this...
OK as I've previously mentioned, I'm new to the home brewing world... and BTW I think ill be here a while . Anyways so being new I obviously dont have all the equipment. after my first brew on my stove top, I realized I needed a better/more efficient burner....as well as a household that appreciated the aroma of Hops a little more. lol. So anyways lastnight comes around and after a trip to the HW store and returning without a high BTU burner... i had an idea!!! I have a coal pot I usually use for big boils... boiling crabs and large batches of soups and such, thought id give it a try...and you know what?? I think its a keeper!!!! (and cheaper than propane to boot!!) Check it out.. hehe:
That is pretty awesome actually, it's bringing it back old school like!
"Yes, I am a pirate two hundred years too late. The cannons don't thunder there's nothin' to plunder,
I'm an [under] forty victim of fate, Arriving too late, arriving too late."
Wow that may have inspired me to go all grain... I could totally do that and sooo much cheaper than propane or elec in my case. What do you do to get the coal going though? Start a wood fire then add coal?
