  • About 7 years ago I bought a kit, 6gal bucket and 5gal glass carboy etc. and started brewing about every week end, and had a loyal band of beer swillers to help polish of each 5 gallon batch soon after it was ready. This was good because I got a lot of input about what I was doing. In the beginning I used extract with grain adjuncts, and experimented with many different recipes and different hops and yeasts. I brewed most every type of beer except lagers because I did not have a dedicated refrigerator, but that has changed. For a couple years my output was sadly about one keg a month, because I was in Graduate school so time was a little short.

    Now I have a house with a dedicated room in the garage. I have been trying to brew every weekend, and have a lot planed for the future. I have been brewing a lot of Belgian and English beers in the summer, and will get back to lagers as winter sets in. Not a long time here in San Diego.

    This thing is fairly sturdy, and can handle the weight, but I think 8gallons is a bout the max
    it could get to a boil, don't think it would boil 13-14 gallons.

    CADETS3, My buddy here in San Diego's mom is from Durango,MX . And she gave me the first recipe
    for my first batch. The problem with using an actual Horchata recipe is that you end up adding

    Went through my system last night and replaced the two element controlling SSR's that failed

    still tight...

    to use a Horchata mix and see what flavor profile I get. I might go out to the belching beaver

    Why is that wire so mangled? Was it like that on installation?No that was from the heat that

    so I could fi...
