LOL - that would be too good. Imagine the looks you'd get after explaining it all.

Ok, here's the game plan. Some of the numbers look a little screwy, but i'm gonna sparge until I get roughly 1.85g of wort, then boil for an hour. That should leave me around .5gal of wort.

Looks good to me. I don't think we are going to have a problem extracting all the sugars. I'll put mine up tomorrow. I gotta hit the sack - talk to you tomorrow.

i wonder if this can be done more efficiently with an old commercial coffee maker, you know, the big ones in diners that have the two heating pads on top. I also wonder if our more technically inclined members would be able to adjust the wiring on those pads to be adjustable for mash temps. While a few things would need to be modified, you could essentially take the mechanics of a coffeemaker and make it into a rather efficient brewery.

The wheels turn

There's actually a few threads on here discussiong using large coffee urns to brew beers...Evidently some people do use 5 and 10 gallon urns with the heating elements in theirs systems. There was a woman on here about 3 months ago from Scotland talking about building a pico system she could take to senior and community centers to demo brewing for them...And at least one member of the Michigan Masher's scored a large coffee urn a couple weeks ago at a goodwill who is playing around with it...

Here's the one about the Burco Coffee Urns in Scotland

coffee pot brew is under way. Mash is at 156...not gonna muck with it. As long as I get decent efficiency I can fudge the rest with the refractometer. Im shooting for a Belgian IPA.

keeping the temps is proving to be pretty troublesome. The burner heats real unevenly, and the edges are losing heat really fast.

I dont want it to take me 5 days to brew a beer.

My wife gets pissed at the fact that it takes several hours to do a batch.

1.027 at 2 gallons going into the pot. The malt should hit me around ~1.080 at 1/2 gallon!! WOot! I'll add corn sugar in a few days.
