  • Posted in thread: What do you think of this kickstarter so far? on 10-02-2015 at 08:55 PM
    Interesting, how much would it cost for additional flow meters etc per tap? I could see
    business/bars looking it for a way to dispense are tables without a server?

    I think I judged Belgian specialty's with you at the BURP competition this year? Anyways, the
    Silver Spring/Colesville area borders the craft beer wasteland that is Montgomery County MD.

    Should be fine as is - saaz hops with there low alpha do require quite a bit to get the IBUs

    Nice work! I agree this isn't "stepping into" :)

  • Posted in thread: Water amount and affects on OG/FG on 09-22-2015 at 09:00 PM
    You are on the right track with the "work backwards" approach. If you want 5 gallons of wort in
    the fermenter you need to know your losses: boil off, trub, wort left in kettle, grain
