Thanks much! That minibrau system looks pretty close, although now the annoying tinkering
homebrewer tendencies are building up and telling me that I could slap together that controller

Hi all,I'll keep this brief and looking for more opinion than technical advice. I am moving to
Taichung, Taiwan in less than 2 months and I intend to take whatever I need to keep brewing
over there. O...

You could also try splitting the base malt 50/50 american 2-row and MO/GP. I did this with a

Without a carb stone as shown above, hooking the gas to the "out" post is silly. It's just
going to bubble (big bubbles) up to the top and collect there anyways, with probably not a
