    Recently upgraded my gravity fed propane system to a BCS controlled all electric two-tier system.

    ok, just tasted and took a gravity reading. Basically done at 1.012 but I think I'll leave it

    I just used this yeast last weekend in an american wheat beer, using citra and centennial as
    the hops. It's my understanding that there's not much in the way of banana or clove from this

    Nice writeup. What do you mean by this line?"I then cut out holes where the Peltier chillers
    were to go"Can you show a picture of it? I would assume that you shouldn't have to cut into the

    Geoff, Did you test that the cold side actually gets cold? I had a chip recently that I tested

    be. That sa...
