    Just FYI, you don't have to push it so far into the grommet.I agree, if you push it too far
    down sometimes the krausen/fermentation debris can come up and plug the bottom of the airlock.
    I have a nic...

    Perfectly normal. You should see it start moving once there is action in the fermenter.
    Congrats on completing your first brew day!

    Value Tap handles could be make your own. A chunk of wood and a T-nut. And you are all set.
    98 cents for a 4-pack!

    Some issues you may run into doing a 5 gallon BIAB in a 20 gallon pot would be boil off and
    cooling the wort. You would have more liquid surface for evaporation to happen. Also, if using
    a wort chille...

    Best recommendations next time are Ice cubes and a tea kettle for fast warming water!

    Nice one! It is always fun to see the ingenuity that homebrewers have at these fests. I enjoy
    checking out all the dispensing rigs people have built and producing 5 gals or so at a time,
    you can get a...

    Let's give this one a bump. Planning to possibly brew a cerveza type light beer that I'd want
    to add corn flakes into (not kellogs, the real stuff) but don't have the slightest clue what
    kind of a per...

    This is one of my favorites in my area. Nothing beats homebrewed beer fest! And it takes place
    downtown KC,

    That by itself is a problem. If your fermentor is so full you can't add ANY water to it, you
    don't have enough headspace and will eventually have a blowout. Get yourself a 6 gallon bucket,
    or a big mo...

    A good crush does one main thing, and one secondary thing for some people. I have a small
    intuition that a fine crush may impact the way that the grain bed releases wort when squeezing
    and improve lau...
