Brewed up a RIS and took some pictures
 
I may not have all sorts of cool equipment, but it still makes beer.

Here is my homemade stir plate, very simple, but does the job. This is also the stepped up starter after a 2000ml was already finished and decanted.

Crash cool the starter and poured off the beer

This is how I measure how much I put into the boiler, this 8Qt pot has notches on the side so I usually fill to 6 or 7, pour into the boiler and keep track until I hit my boil volume

HLT and boil bot, even a level helps with leveling my measuring pot since the concrete is a little slant

Heater for the water, keeping it at 67

After 3 hours, I forgot to take a picture at 7 hours, and the flow off 1 gallon container was over filling at 20 hours.


It was a successful brew, the final gravity was 1.095

Love the pics! If I do an RIS I'm definitely using some foam control in the fermenter :)

Yeah, that would have been a good idea. I lost maybe 1/4 to 1/2 a gallon. The foam was on its way down this morning, but the bubbles were still like 3-4 a second.

Lol, actually I took it from my Dad, he use to use them for keeping track of tax documents. This was for the 1987 docs I believe :)
