    2- ignore the temp on the controller when chilling, the counterflow chiller will chill the

    just started boiling my first batch. i'm noticing a LOT of husks in the boil, at lease more

    Received my Grainfather from Amazon yesterday. Both the kettle and the basket were dented. I've

    and prac...
