I use a $2.00 shower head in my 10 gal cooler. It's called a Sparge-O-Matic.
Works great with a pump. I can clear the wort before transfer very easy.

My first time ever brewing beer, all on my DIY two tier. Im hooked! Biggest thing I learned, wort needs to be cool before taking gravity. I thought I had WAY too much water to get my preboil gravity readings, but I taking a reading in 180 degree wort won't work. Can't wait to try it!

Here's a pic of the action. My next batch will be smoother.

Ok she's fermenting! Krausen isn't terribly high, but it's bubbling away!

It's the carboy on the far right.

I hit 1.047 or so OG....close enough I hope...can't wait to try this.

Just pulled a pint of this tonight. It's finally cleared after 4 weeks in the keg. More importantly it's aged nicely and has lost that green beer flavor, the up front hop bite has subsided bringing more flavor out but with still some nice hop bitterness and aroma. It's a bit thin since I accidentally mashed at 149F so I would have liked a little bit more malt backbone, but it's a very tasty beer. Much different at 6 weeks old than when I tried it at 3

I'll definitely make this again, and plan on leaving it to condition for at least 6-8 weeks before I tap the next one.

This is my second batch. The first one was awesome just a little too cloudy.
So this one when the FG bottomed out I cold crashed it to 34oF for 5 days then slowly warmed it 60oF and bottled it. It was really clear after the cold crash. I conditioned it in the bottles for a week and tried it. Wow this is even better than the last.
Has anyone else cold crashed this or other brews?
Does it always help to clear the beer?

OG = 1.053
FG = 1.008 (hydrometer)
No changes to recipe except Wyeast 1056 @ 63F

Cleared with gelatin, reyeasted with S04 @ bottling. Brewed for Thanksgiving, definitely a rebrew after the first taste.
