  • Efficiency is for drinkers. No sparge is for quality beer. With a converted keg; I can RIMS full volume, step mash to mash out temp and drain to kettle. Saves time and only takes 30% more grain for me. And the improvement in my beer...... wow.
  • 68 GTO mostly restored
  • Oldest daughter was a Fullbright Scholar in Germany. Wish we could get Fru Kolsch here. Tried over 20 "biers" in 10 days. Daily trains to distant regions just for bier.
  • NO-sparge makes better beer but going to 10 gallon batches in a 15 gallon converted keg mash tun won't work. only doing the no-sparge for small batches
  • Holiday beer time. Evil MF Bad Santa is in primary with a OG over 1.1. This is an "improvement" over last years Regular Bad Santa with an OG of 1.085
  • secondary is for mead or holiday beer with spices
  • ummm pretty much everything except juice, mothers milk, and tea. And don't try that kind of milk in your coffee. Wife will say you are weird and it don't taste as cool as it sounds.
  • Bad Santa is awesome!! I am not liable for Santa knocking you down.

    I soaked grounds in some Grey Goose vodka for a day, then ran through the coffee filter
    directly into the carboy. No infection risk there.

    like a bad che...
