  • I needed a hobby since my job (mainly the company) was draining the life out of me. My wife told me you love beer and love cooking, why not brew your own beer. One trip to the LHBS and that was it. Got my starter equipment and it has been an obsession since.

    for what its worth, I have heard these have a finite lifespan. For the cost, I think it may be
    better to buy new. On the flipside, I have the 1800 one and its going strong for 2 years now.

    offtopic for IslandLizard...if you ever need one, the restaurant store on kane street in
    baltimore usually stocks them.

    you can try some carared to get some color.Definitely based on your yeast and hop selection you

    Avantco IC 3500 (i have the 1800 watt version). Pot doesn't have to sit completely on burner
    (i.e can overhang some and still work fine). I recommend wrapping kettle in reflectix as well.

    What about the hop quantities, and especially the Mount Hood/other Aroma-type finishing hop
    suggestions?IMO: get most of your bittering from the initial hop addition. Just plug into
    beersmith and keep...

    but rather loo...
