I have not tried a no sparge yet, but it is on my to do list and would make things even easier.
Did you experience much efficiency difference?Will definitely report back once I Brew.
Currently over an...

I really dig your stand. If you think of it/have time, post an update after you've taken 'er
out for a test drive. Also, do you do no-sparge or do you have a separate vessel somewhere that

This is awesome. Looking forward to see how things progress. I built a shed about a year ago
and, while it's not solely for brewing, it was designed with my brewery in mind. It really is
nice to have ...

This would obviously only be relevant on future brews, but I didn't see a mention of what yeast

some really ...

If I were really looking to simplify and learn the ropes of brewing a style like Saison, I'd

Yes agreed, I also run 2 X 2000w for 7.75 gal 1/4 keg batches and just run 100%. Can't really
understand all this "to do" about a controller and turning the power down. If you reasonably

I would advocate 2 x 2000w if you can source 2 20 amp GFCI circuits. The extra 1000w makes a
big difference, and even put 10 gallon batches in reach.+1 to this. I run 2 x 2000W and they

Wow man. Nice job. That looks fantastic. Best integration of shelving I've seen on a keezer,
