  • Started brewing on extract kits in August 2006 after a horribly failed Mr Beer batch. Converted to all grain after 5 batches and haven't looked back. I'm currently working out the kinks in a custom single tier, 3 sanke, natural gas fired system. I'm a batch sparging advocate and like to teach new all grain brewers that you can achieve high 80% efficiencies. I'm focused on brewing highly drinkable beers right now and plan to start expanding BJCP knowledge to become a better brewer.

  • Burnt/scorched element: what happened?
    That is a hot spot failure which typically happens when the core wire gets a little too close
    to the sheath and starts shorting out creating a very hot spot like a weld. It is noticeably
    more common w...

  • New BIAB False Bottoms
    That size is going to be the first lot of a redesign. It's going to be about another 3 weeks
    before I see them. Don't despair, it will be worth the wait.

  • Diptubes for TC Ports
    It would be a good idea when ordering to let me know it will be used with our false bottom so
    that I can be very careful with the bend placement.

  • New BIAB False Bottoms
    I think you would be better off installing the element.

  • Steelhead 2.0 pump mounting
    They work great and are dead silent. I have about 40 of them in stock. I've had one on my
    personal brew rig for a few months. The ones I have include a rubber mount but I actually
    prefer to camlock th...

  • Cocoa powder in the Secondary
    2oz boil and 2oz in primary about 3 to 5 days into ferment.

  • Cereal Mash: Amylase
    You don't need to go through all that effort. Just boil the corn for a few minutes and add to
    the mash. As long as you have 50% malt, you'll be fine.

  • Dry Yeast for 13% ABV Triple IPA
    Us05 will get you there but you really do need to sub in about 1 pound of sugar.

  • Why does rehydrating warm & pitching cool not temp-shock yeast?
    Over the 15-30 minutes of rehydration period it cools down. Another way to do it is to temper
    the yeast by spooning in some wort. This is more an issue for lagers where you hopefully chill
    the wort do...

Fermentation may have been a greater discovery than fire.

Thanks for all the useful information you have posted on various sites.

I am currently building a single tier stand of my own and was hoping that you would share the dimensions of yours, that is if you are happy with them.

If not would you please tell me the dims of the stand you would hope for.
