Posted in thread: How does a cooler mash tun work? on 03-16-2011 at 03:47 AM
I'm with hamiltont on this one. I used Don Osborn's website to build my mash tun for less than
30 or 40 bucks and it's been a champ. High fives to the guys who can afford to all the nice
stuff, but th...
Posted in thread: Question - modified biab or convert my 5 gallon cooler? on 01-24-2011 at 08:19 PM

Hot damn. Less than 48 hours and the active fermentation really slowed down. Yeasties really

bottles and see ...

Hi guys. I have a completely broken fridge I'd like to turn into a fermentation chamber.
Ideally, I could do this without the use of costly electronics (or any at all). Would a few

So I pitched some Nottingham yeast dry into wort that was 80-82 degrees last night. When I woke
