  • Posted in thread: 210,000 btu banjo burner too much? on 08-30-2014 at 09:37 PM
    That is a pretty common burner for home brew I think. I've been using one for years for my 5.5
    gal batches. In fact I just added another one to my new brew stand to heat my water in a 15 gal
    keg. It t...

    I can't really comment on the mods other than say that I've been having no issues with the HLT

    Not to offend any reputable, honest vendors out there, but I still prefer crushing my own vs.
    having them crush it for me. If it isn't right, then it's nobody's fault but mine! Not that I

    such good luck before and this batch didn't appear to have many intact grains. The last batch i
    was more su...

    Anyone ever have a period where suddenly you can't hit your gravity numbers? I'm consistently
    in the 75% range and then suddenly my last two brews have been lousy. I'm hitting my volumes,
    but my extra...
