    and all the peripherals such as hydrometer, thermometer, airlock etc

    I am mainly into the Belgian Trappist ales so am concerntrating on these.
    Have brewed one pre-hopped extract can. This was fermented at too high a temperature and it had a rather sharp taste to it before mellowing with a LONG bottle condition.

    Have just finished my first all grain using the DeathBrewer stovetop method. Will continue to use this method as it produced excellent results.

    I used WLP400. I believe thats supposed to be Hoegaarden yeast. It is also a low floctuating

    The only roof flashing I can find is like this: think this will be much good due to the large

    There are other products on their website that state the max temp is 105C. I think they do
    several versions of the product that can withstand different ranges of temperature.I sent an

    It does say max surface temp 60C but it also says it self-extinguishes so I thought it would be
    alright. Now I'm not so sure...I thought armaflex was the material people used when insulating

    easier.I'm looking for a material that I can attach permanently that also looks pretty cool.
    Think this may ti...
