  • I did an extract batch in 1994 and loathed the lack of control and biochemistry involved. The second batch was all-grain and I haven't looked back. The most challenging part of brewing is learning your gear so you can stay true to recipe and/or produce consistent batches. However, consistency may not be desirable for most home brewers!

    I had someone give me two corny kegs that are no good for kegging because the gas inlets are
    bent. Is there any cool projects that someone has made using damaged kegs?Attach a pic and I'm
    certain we c...

    Jacking is concentrating. At least the feds say so here .Enjoy!

    It would be helpful to know the dimensions of your fermentation chamber. Half-Barrel Sankes
    stack nicely with this .Good luck!

    Back in the 90's my class reviewed a case study as part of an Industrial engineering major. A
    particular huge brewery would determine which container was most appropriate for their
    product(s) based on...

    ...don't have any resources to deal with it.It seems there is absolutely no significant federal
    enforcement on the home brewing limit - similar to how the feds now enforce (or don't enforce)

  • Posted in thread: Brewing over 200 gal. limit on 03-03-2011 at 02:50 PM
    Using google, I am unable to locate the instance referred above. Is there an article which
    details the enforcement?I did not find any article for any Alabamian(s) selling homebrew or
    going over state ...

    I like the Op's query: Does anyone have a reference to an actual case which shows enforcement
    of the limits either by the state or feds?

    +1. If you must fly sparge, I think people (as well as the Blichman company) just place a tube
    in the top of the MLT. If you have sufficient grain depth and a slow enough flow, should be
    fine.When I h...

    I also use the TE-3-MD-HC as a pump for all my needs. The electric motor brushes are not
    exposed (TE=totally enclosed). Therefore, splashes and etc don't get into the motor. I picked
    up mine on ebay f...
