I would suggest getting a plate filter (in case you are reacting to the yeast), and/or using
Clarity Ferm (if it's a gluten-related issue). Also calibrate your thermometers to make sure
you are not ge...

That depends on your efficiency and the desired OG of the beer. You'll probably be able to do
3-gallon batches with up to 1.055-1.060 OG, depending on efficiency.Of course, you can always
add extract ...

I assume that the pre-boil sample will need to be cooled before taking a gravity reading.A

Ok. The description says it is used for heating and cooling so I was under the impression it
