    Lately I've been keeping some version of Jukas' Row 2 Hill 56 clone on tap. I change up the
    hops and yeast, but I love that grainbill for a quaffable beer that showcases the hops. It also
    works out we...

    Ah, got it. As long as your cooler is big enough shouldn't be an issue, it's just a vessel for
    the mash. If it provides improved temp control all the better. If you're using the bag you
    don't have to ...

    Not sure what you mean by BIAB numbers. You can do a full volume mash in any tun if you have
    the room. Are you referring to efficiency? I see a number of folks report a bit lower
    efficiency doing full...

    You don't need a secondary, you can dry hop in primary. Carbonation level is adjusted by the
    amount of priming sugar you use. Here is one calculator. I suggested that kit because you
    mentioned Two hea...

    Northern Brewer's Dead Ringer is a very popular kit, comes in an easy extract version, and is
    based on Two-Hearted ale.welcome to the obsession:mug:

    That half lb of honey malt shouldn't make it amber. I suspect the late addition is the

    Took a minute to think about that. It reads 10-12 high. But that's not what you said: "when I
    get up to 153 my old thermometer is reading around 140 - 142", i.e. the old one reads low. Did
    you mean to...

    Just checking, but there wasn't a blow off attached, right? Hoping that isn't a layer of
    starsan that got sucked back. Otherwise like flars said just let it warm up.

    I prefer having secondaries downstream because I can mount them inside and just have one line
    into the keezer. For me it's mainly to carb to different levels. I've never had a need to burst
    carb at hi...

    Some people get away with short lines - maybe it's the rise to their tap, better
    cooling/airflow, who knows. Many of us just need longer lines. A too long line doesn't hurt
    anything except giving a sl...
