    After reading the last two posts, I'm reminded that mine seemed not right originally. Seems
    they are tight now, but I can't remember if it was being backwards.

    Looks good! Pilsner definitely works well as a base for an Pale Ale/IPA.My 2cents is:
    definitely don't use Amarillo as a 60 minute addition. It is much, much more useful as a late
    addition. I'd use a ...

    2amp supplies cheap from China, and enough for all the 12V solar pumps. 1 amp is marginal for
    many pumps, and pump may not meet flow spec.

    All dried yeasts you can pitch directly, but more cells are lost to shock. A good rule of thumb
    is to rehydrate if it's a high starting gravity, or use two packs. Of course, yeast freshness
    comes into...

    I got one that sounds about like that from the fish lab at my old university about a year ago.
    Strong bleach for 3 days, strong acid for 3 days, rinse a bunch. Seemed fine, but I traded it
    to someone ...

    Sounds like a water bottle, with the threaded top. I'd use it but I have little regard for my
    own well being, in general.Definitely NOT used for water. Water has always been 5 gallons, even
    when glass...

    I just got a free(cost a bottle of wine) carboy from a friend's customer. Unsure what was in
    it, And it's different. Kind of a blue glass color, holds about 7 gallons, and has what appears
    to be threa...

    I've been using the 2Kw system here in NZ since it started and I couldn't be happier to be
    honest. For someone like me, who lives in a small apartment, it's great....I think you all
    missed my point, u...

    Wow, that's quite the rant, very impressive. I was skeptical of the boil-off too but after
    showing the video that was posted on the Kickstarter page to several folks in my HB club who
    said it looked s...
