First hop addition is in... transferred my Xmas Ale to the secondary today while this thing was mashing... I am also painting the interior of my house I have so much time on my hands!
Here is the beginning of the 30 min. sparge process
Collected 7 gallons at 1.060 pre-boil....
Oh yeah, the wort is CRYSTAL clear... I love HERMS
how much did that pump cost you and did you get it online or what? I am interested in a set up like this, most likely out of my budget though... I need to get a immersion chiller first but I need to get a pump.
The whole rig cost me about $900... the pump I bought for like $125 on sale online somewhere about 18 months ago.
Brew is chilled and in the freezer!!
Here is my Chrismas Ale that I transferred to the secondary....
Here are the hops and oak chips for the Fire In The Hole Ale....
Brew is churning and bubling away, got a nice big whiff of CO2 when I stuck my head in the freezer (idiot). Cant wait to have all of my kegs full!
