  • 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 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.

    GF has a few downsides that I can see without having used it. It is underpowered for the batch

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.
