    This works for me.That's very cool (sorry :D ). I"m going to replace my 18 gallon water filled
    tote with that, should help keep the ice utilization down quite a bit.

    Nothing fancy, just Beer Labelizer and some public domain artwork. Laser printer onto regular

    OK, I've brewed a few batches with kits and LME/DME, and everything has come out pretty good.

    595. Not sure what happened. Came back from vacation, and it's still in it's tube, sitting on
