    I love a happy ending!

    All good advice. I agree about the pot too, if you want 5 gallon grain batches, 40qt is a good
    size. Check Amazon and HomeBrewFinds for good deals. Do you plan on using a burner, or a stove?
    Be sure f...

    Sounds really good! My brother has a house with a basement apartment, including kitchen. My
