  • Got into home wine and cider making as a wedding present from my wife in early 2007 and it has progressed as time goes by. I started brewing extract with specialty grains January 2010 and have moved into all grain by December 2010. The first few all grain batches were like learning to brew all over again but now it's hard to imagine brewing any other way. My equipment consist of a 10 Gallon Rubbermaid Cooler Mash Tun with ball valve, SS braid and thermowell. Keggle with ball valve, sight glass and thermometer. Therminator with in line chiller for those hot Florida summers. KAB6 propane burner. Several carboys, buckets and starting to convert pony kegs to fermentors, 7.2 cf Fermentation Freezer with Johnson Control. I bottle all my beer at this point even though I have a Party Pig that occasionally gets filled.
