  • Got into brewing spring 09 with some research on the internet i wanted my first batch to be a liquid extract batch with my own hop additions. The LHBS, if it can be called that, informed me that i had to call their retail shop and buy blackrock kits. So thats what i did and it turned out horrible. About 20 kit beers later i did a liquid extract+ dextrose+ hops batch that i got from another town. That beer turned out ok, but the finer points of proper temperatures weren't quite realized so it turned out to be a mediocre beer. I got a job at a local brewery and they were kind enuff to hook me up with everything i needed for an AG batch, which was exciting. That beer turned out absolutely amazing, despite my lack of proper equipment. I did a few extract batches until my 10gallon keg MT and kettle were done. I built a counterflow wort chiller and now im all setup to do AG. Made friends with a Micro brewery about 45 minutes from here and thats where i get all my grain, and hops.

    I've been trying to figure out a good way of doing step mashes for a long time. Adding hot
    water works but is in my opinion troublesome. I brew with electricity and and indoors so i cant
    direct fire. ...

    Gambrinus makes a dark Munich at 30L, that may be what you have, its definitely not a crystal
    malt and needs to be mashed. Its got a really great flavor to it, altho 3.5 lbs in that recipe
    is a bit ex...

    Im using 1/2" hoses and fittings on my 1bbl system with march pumps and it works fine. Unless
    you replace your pumps, they will be your bottle neck. I personally dont think a 300-500 dollar
    pump is wo...

    My pipeline is such that i dont get around to my beers until they are at least a month old and
    at least 2-3 weeks cold conditioned. Thus i dont like to wait any longer and have perfected the

    I've always used a 7/8" bi-metal holesaw for my keggle fittings. I've gone through 3/16" thick
    stainless with hole saws.

    That would be a giant piece of pipe. What is the diameter of it?The inside diameter is just
    about bang on 20". By it self the stupid thing weighed 132 lbs.

    Heres my new system, the kettle was a piece of stainless pipe that i welded a bottom on. I did
    a 26 gallon batch with it this past monday and it all went pretty good. Got a few more things

  • Posted in thread: Can i use copper graded for 150 deg. In wort chiller on 06-18-2012 at 07:10 AM
    I wouldnt worry about it, coppers melting point is almost 2000f so your boiling wort isnt even
    coming close to hurting it.
