  • I got into brewing when I got a Brooklyn home brew kit. I did a few extract and brew in a bag beers before I ran into a 10 gallon cooler! I started using the cooler, a 10 gallon aluminum turkey fryer. I most recently bought a fridge and converted it into a fermenting chamber/ kegerator. Looking forward to expanding my equipment.

    This is awesome AJ thank you!For the test mash do I just scale down the mash and find the acid

    Ok I wasn't sure how far off 0.2 was. It seemed significant but maybe not then... that is quite

    This is great information thank you! I was thinking of a mini mash of all the grains at once. I

    different malts...

    is(low cleaning times). My concern is keeping the kettle lid on during chilling. I can always
    cut a section o...

    keggle as my boil kettle and brew all grain. I don't have a pump but am planning on buying one.
