  • Big Cat Brewery was established in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia, Canada, as a result of the uncommon alliance of two displaced college football fans. Penn State and LSU alums joined resources and time to provide suitable beverages for Saturday afternoons, evenings, and every other moment in between. Since then BCB has gone worldwide, from Mr. Beer creations in Bahrain, to continued partial mash in central Cali, and now all-grain in SoCal.

    I ended up buying one of these. While I have yet to use it for a brew, I took it for a hot
    water test spin the day after I got it. Using gravity only and water directly from my hose
    (about 75 deg) I w...

    Found on eBay hereLooks nice and compact with an inline thermometer. Just curious if anyone has
    given it a try. I did not see any thread on it yet in my search.

    I also did a wheat laden IPA . . . about 40% wheat coupled with 8oz of honey malt. Used
    Colombus, Amarillo, and Citra . . . it's awesome.

    I built one of these for a party this coming weekend. I'll post a review of performance next
    week. I apologize for the blurry inside pic. It looked good enough on the iphone not to take

    Great thoughts all. I don't see myself venturing into the 10gal batch range... but I'll have to
    weigh the options.

    I realized I never closed the thread on this. I did indeed pitch all of the saved yeast at

    the time it was...

    Greetings all. I'm looking to make the all-grain plunge, and planning on going the round igloo
    cooler method. I've decided on a 10 gallon cooler so that I'm never OG limited in 5 gallon
    batches. (ther...

    I've got what probably amounts to 4-5x a vial/smackpack in my washed yeast stash. But part of
    me wanted to also do a starter, hence the blossoming of ideas. Every time I've used my washed
    yeasts I've ...
