  • 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, all grain in So-Cal, and now international in Sicily. That's what happens when the government pays the bills and the hobby costs.

    No issues here either. One pass gravity fed at about 3/4 open on the bottom valve usually
    results in tap water temperature for me. Does exactly what I want it to. A little tipsy if you
    don't mount it ...

    It sounds like it's still making beer... So obligatory: relax and have a homebrew. There's
    always gravity reading too. Now that the standard annoying hbt answers that don't really answer
    your question...

    I've got about 15 brews on it, all gravity fed with SoCal 68-73 deg water. Dropped the wort
    temp to the tap temp in one pass. Love the thing. No impending deterioration signs noticed yet.

    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...

    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
