  • Started brewing on extract kits in August 2006 after a horribly failed Mr Beer batch. Converted to all grain after 5 batches and haven't looked back. I'm currently working out the kinks in a custom single tier, 3 sanke, natural gas fired system. I'm a batch sparging advocate and like to teach new all grain brewers that you can achieve high 80% efficiencies. I'm focused on brewing highly drinkable beers right now and plan to start expanding BJCP knowledge to become a better brewer.

  • Brewers not wanting to talk about brewing.....
    Here's what I think is going on. The bar is an obvious service portal between business and

  • Foam problem to no head now

    been on the gas. I'll just say that it takes about 2.5 weeks to get to equilibrium if you start

    not plastic right?

  • Stainless Teapot Heating Elements
    Yes, two of these in parallel should get you back up to 1500 watts which would run off of a
    15amp circuit. You can get pretty creative with switches to change the total power in
    increments of 750 watt...

  • Prototype Previews: Hopback and Heat Stick
    Sorry for the lack of updates. This was just really bad timing trying to develop two new

  • BIAB Mash Thickness, why is it ok?
    I don't think you're over thinking it at all. Yes, mashing at full volume can get you into
    trouble regarding pH in certain water chemistry/malt combinations. It also dilutes diastatic
    power, which is ...

  • "polishing your keg" is more than a clever euphemism
    Media blasting will leave a smooth but matte finish. it would look like a brand new keg from
    the factory basically.

  • Prototype Previews: Hopback and Heat Stick
    The idea for filtering is to pack it full of rice hulls. I've heard it works great but I can't
    back that up with my own testing yet.

Thanks for all the useful information you have posted on various sites.

I am currently building a single tier stand of my own and was hoping that you would share the dimensions of yours, that is if you are happy with them.

If not would you please tell me the dims of the stand you would hope for.
