  • Started on an outside burner, soon moved to a bigger pot. I do some small BIAB batches on the stove. Won the 30A BCS Control Panel from Electric Brewing Supply in the HomeBrewTalk 2014 Big Giveaway. Today, I have an Electric BIAB system and BrewPi Fermentation Controller, but am still bottling. I have been using the "A Brewing Water Chemistry Primer" thread here on HBT for my water. The combination of a good water base, precise mash control from the BCS, panel, and precise fermentation control from the BrewPi has improved my beers quite a bit. I have the equipment for oxygenating the wort, so that is the next step.

    I enjoy the process and I have spent a lot of time and money on this hobby but end of the day
    if I'm not fully satisfied with my end product it's a bit of a waste of time. I've been using
    my tap water...

    I'll throw my vote in for wilserbrewer. I have two of his grand slam packages - one for my
    keggle and one for my smaller, stove top batches. They work very well in both
    applications.Additionally, I ha...

    gallon carboy), t...

    Cody, I have done nothing to seal these tightly, I kind of do it old school leaving the lid
    loose to allow CO2 to escape, letting the krausen go wild rather than restricting it, while the
    lid prevents...

    The Brute garbage cans work very well, here's my setup for primary fermenters at home. I use
    two 32gal brutes.Have you modified the lids to seal tightly?If not, how long do you leave a
    batch in these?...
