    My understanding of rice hulls is that they can be added to a mash without any effect on the
    taste or body of the beer and their function is to loosen the mash up a little. Might work, I
    have never tr...

    I am new to all grain, but I have done some research on the matter. Take my advice with a bit
    of caution because I am by no means an expert. Okay, most every beer is mashed between 150-158
    degrees. Th...

    You know money is a factor... At least being broke and brewing are two easy things to make
    work. See I have a burner now and it was intended for a 5 gallon kettle. My 10 gal sits on
    there but not how ...

    I just checked my pot and it's Stainless Aluminium Stainless sandwich on bottom. Why? I am not
    exactly sure, but I can tell you that I am going to ask my chemistry proffessor tomorrow and
    get some con...

    Currently I have a 40 Qt. Stainless Steel Stock Pot for my boil. I am looking to do 10 gallon
    batches. I am thinking about converting a Keg to a keggle, but there is pretty good deals on
    Aluminium pot...

    That was my fear unfortunatly. I think I am going to save up for the Banjo plus and get that. I
    will be doing my boil in a keggle.

    Has anyone used the Bayou Classic SP1 Jet Cooker to brew beer with. I want to put a keggle on
    top of it and use it for my boil. It is cheap and packs a helluva punch. Just wondering if
    anyone has used...

    I was getting hung up on the heat factor. Let it sit or heat it? I think that while the
    draining process takes a decent amount of time I could hit it with the flame a little. Thanks
    for the posts. I h...

    So you do your vorlauf and then drain you MLT. Now I have some wort in my brew kettle. Does it
    just sit there and wait until I am done sparging??? Is the cooling of the wort something I have
    to correc...

    Here is the revised recipe. I think I want to keep a very small portion of the Special B. I
    like the flavor profile, it seems like in the correct amount it will be what my beer needs.
    1/8th a pound wi...
