    ABOUT ME

  • Discovered home brewing in college, but had to take a 4 year hiatus after graduation as I lived in small apartments and moved frequently for jobs. Now that I am settled I've picked the hobby back up and the fact that I have disposable income for the first time is turning this hobby into and addiction.

    Sorry, it's crazy crude but it should get the point across. The whole thing could be 2x4's.
    Shouldn't be too hard to build. Just cut em to the right lengths and screw together with 2.5"
    screws. The or...

    IMHO not a fan of the boil kettle being under anything. I see the idea is to minimize size but
    I really think a two tier sort of structure would be better. Then you'd have room under the tun
    to store/...

    IC I'll stick in the 10 minutes of boil2. I have a pretty long cord for control panel so I will

    curiousity?Kaiser has a nice write up on it. a good point on the condensation falling back
    into the BK. I was g...

    Sketchup of my of a stand for my two vessel electric brewery. No need for HLT since I will
    either mash at full volume or cold water sparge. One of the top 2x4s has a latch and hinge so I
    can swing it ...

    +1 for switching to low density element. I've seen people add near 90 degree bends to some
    elements so you might be able to make it fit your current equipment.
