BTW, I'm substituting Fuggles for the Willamette 'cause it's what I've got. Anybody has a problem with that come and see me...

The wort was good...I thought the grist and the maltiness I got out of it was really nice. Have to wait and see how the hops come through once it's carbonated...really hinges on that. I used Fuggles instead of Willamette, but they're pretty close so that shouldn't really impact things.

It was also the first time I did 10g, went pretty well. Still got 78% efficiency using a mash + 2 batch sparges and the fryer had no problem getting the keggle boiling. I knocked out a Cheyco CFC in the a.m. and it had everything down to 80 by the time it drained (mine's only 20').

Cool. You need to take some pics next time you brew.

78% in a batch sparge is pretty stinking good.

A Cheyco CFC....you didn't use that gay looking blue hose like his, did you?

Man I wish all of you NC guys could get up here for a big long brewday!

I've been getting in the upper 70's to low 80's ever since I built my new copper manifold and started using a 36qt cooler...this system seems to work well with batch sparges. I'll take pics next time, I always forget.

As for the chiller, no, I didn't source any gay Canadian hose (pun intended). I just used the ends of the cheap green hose I cut up. I had ~$65 invested which is a small price for the savings in time.

Maybe we can make it up this summer for a brewday...I'll be in lockdown for a while after September when my progeny pops out.

Adjust your monitors, that hose is grey. Yeah, I spelled it GREY!


(It was also only $4.99)
