    Bottle away - longer fermentation is rarely a bad thing, and is often a good thing.

    I started using the paint-mixer/cordless drill approach to stirring (as opposed to hand
    stirring) and my cooling times went down dramatically. Easily 50% decrease in time.

    I think run time is a huge "pro" for the chest freezer...seems like the insulation is so much
    better...I swear we can hear the Vissani from two rooms away, and the buzz is very annoying.

    We have a small house, and the only place I can really fit a kegerator is in the room right
    next to our bedroom. Now, beer next to a bedroom may seem like a bi-winning situation, but it's
    not really g...

    A trick I use for a bubbling auto-siphon is to pour some of whatever you are transferring
    between the outer and inner tubes of the siphon. It's never failed me.

    I also add liquid (starsan) between the two tubes when I have issues with the seal. It's fixed
    every problem so far.

    I just received a pound from fresh hops. Arrived in about 3 days, across the entire country.
    Impressive!I have no idea what to do with them now though.

  • Posted in thread: Why 5 gallon batches? on 07-21-2011 at 01:24 AM
    When I went to BIAB, I went to 2.5g batches (from 5g) and I'm very happy with the decision. I
    get to brew more often, and try a lot of different recipes while I'm still learning. I usually
    get sick of...

    I lucked out and found a used thermocouple on ebay for $1 + $5 shipping. It was a liquidator,
    and it was in the industrial equipment section, not listed as thermocouple. I totally lucked
    out, but now ...

    I'd get the bayou pot kit with the steamer basket included, in case you want to switch to a
    BIAB setup at some later point. Small premium if you buy the pot+basket, but can be a bigger
    ticket if you b...
