    Mine is in for the entire boil. I use a hop spider and it's just easier to have the chiller in
    place rather than try to move a very hot hop spider around.

    I haven't dried any sanitized items. As long as you're using food grade, no-rinse sanitizer, I
    can't imagine why it would need to dry.

    Mine actually goes in for the whole boil. I found that to be easier than dealing with trying to
    move a very hot hop spider out of the way toward the end of the boil, plus my boil doesn't get

    After having corrosion issues for some reason with an aluminum pitcher I had (even replaced it
    and the new one had the same problem) I got one of these. It's clear plastic but evidently

    Coolers are popular for mash tuns because they hold the temperature well. A process called brew
    in a bag allows you to do everything in your boil kettle, so read up on that. You may want to

    I've never disassembled. I bought two of mine from and they recommend against
    disassembly. I've heard that the warranty claim is a rumor, but I can't say for sure.

    I use Brewer's Friend. I like it, particularly since I'm using my tablet on brew day, not my
    computer. I know that Beersmith has a mobile app, but at the time I was deciding, the mobile
    app was partic...

    As far as I can tell, the best bet with these (I have 3) is build or buy a keg washer and
    simply don't disassemble unless there is a problem.

    Hard to say. I'm guessing the specialty grain was in for the boil? It should be interesting to
    see what you get as an end result. In any case, you will make beer.

    One of these days I'd love to get a nice brewing system. I think if I had the opportunity
    today, I would probably order a Morebeer system. I'd go for the digital setup...your
    temperatures will be held...
