Here is a beer that I am going to brew for my wife... She doesnt like real beer. I plan to ferment it at about 60F with the Notty
This is a $14 batch of beer, I hope my wife likes its lack of flavor and body!
Between this brew, my Columbus Blonde and the Standard IPA that is listed on here... I am brewing 3 brews in the coming weeks for about $60!! I will have to buy another keg though ;)
Simple and to the point, looks like a nice easy drinker.
Nice 80F afternoon to brew... just mashed this one in about 10 minutes ago.
My shortest brew day to date... 4 hours from start to finish... including cleanup! Sitting at 62F in my fridge... mmmm beer....
Pretty vigorous ferment going on at 12 hours. I accidentally BURNT through the hose on my 10psi regulator, so I had to use my 5psi... WOW did that suck.... it took the entire mash time to heat my 5 gallons of sparge water. The March pump worked ALOT better this time around and I hit my temps right on. I do plan to continue my Brutus build over the coming year... but I tell you what, this system I have now is really pretty damn nice to brew on!
No no, I am not that ghetto. Drill a 1" hole with a hole saw... then procure #6 SOLID stopper and drill a tiny hole through it with a drill. Insert the stopper into the hole from the inside and push the stem of the thermometer in from the outside. Been using them for a year, they work great!
