  • I got hooked on brewing at a party where a co-worker's spouse was serving several tasty homebrews. I'm as addicted to the creation and perfection of the brewing gadgets as I am to the making of the beer itself.

    No melting noticed on mine. I have since had it coated in a truck bed liner.

    OK, I'm new to grain brewing. Never have done it yet. Like to build this system. I have a dumb
    question but do you ever have clogging of hops in the lines and pump when pumping from the
    kettle through...

    I, too, can reply to a thread.

    I think the major steps of your plan seem to make sense. I'm an electric brewer, and have been
    brewing in a series of apartments, so I know what some of the limitations are like. I'm a
    little confused...

    To directly answer your question, yes it will "work" and I don't see a downside other than the
    cost.But it definitely won't fit. The best of the 4.x cubic foot fridges will fit two ball lock
    kegs, wit...

    Can you post a link? is the part on Brewmasters Warehouse the above poster is referring to, I
    believe. I haven't looked into it, but I'm not sure that's a pressure relief valve on there.
    That might b...

    I'd also recommend a tall/narrow pot for this project. The smaller diameter can make sealing
    the element by some methods a little trickier, but not impossible and well worth it for the
    decreased heat ...

    That Cedar Creek site was incredible useful for me in my first foray into electric brewing,
    which was building a heatstick to augment my stovetop mashing and turkey fryer boiling
    processes.But keep in...

    I'd start by making sure eKettle with PID control is what you really want for you task.10
    gallon kettle, I'm sure your goal is 5 gallon batches. At 120V, household circuits will limit
    you to a 2000W e...
