    Here's a link to the tater bomb recipe(s)/method:uhh, we have a home Temple game this weekend.
    I think I"m just going to make a finger foods in the smoker, nothing substantial. But these
    potatoe bombs...

  • Posted in thread: which of these conical fermenters? on 09-06-2014 at 11:04 AM
    The suggestions made so far has enlightened me to the realization that though a conical
    fermenter has a lot of WOW factor, other equipment would serve my S-I-L much better with his
    brewing at this poi...

    Thanks dfess1. They live in Garden City, KS; we live in SE corner of KS. I have found some brew
    pots with valves, the 10 gallon be large enough for a full wort boil? I know daughter has
    commented some...

    If they are sticking with kits, the best thing to do would be the wort chiller, and getting a
    large enough pot to do a full wort boil. If their turkey fryer isn't large enough to do that,
    I'd get a la...

    Problem with upgrading the brewery bits is you go down the veritable rabbit hole. I agree there
    are other things that could make brewing easier, perhaps to the point where he does it more
    than 3 times...

    I'd go with the brewbucket myself. Like you said, he does 3 batches a year. That seems to be a
    little easier to carry around from where he brews to where it ferments. I'm assuming he's
    brewing on a st...

  • Posted in thread: Chugger Pump Head - PP vs SS on 09-05-2014 at 06:43 PM
    You have to try realllllly hard to strip a stainless thread. That said I have PP heads on my LG
    pumps. They do move a bit. I'd like to tighten them up, but don't want to risk stripping the
    thread.

  • Posted in thread: Why bother with carboys and blow-off tubes? on 09-05-2014 at 06:27 PM
    So back to the OP. I've got both. Mainly because i bought up a large lot from a guy getting out
    of the hobby for dirt cheap. Once I built my single tier, and started carrying full 6.5 gal
    carboys into...

    I would whole heartedly disagree here. That baffle is a must between the cook and the smoke
    chambers. I owned this smoker (and it served me well) for over 15 yrs. But I didn't make GOOD,
    REPEATABLE bb...
