    Maybe look into induction burners if your going small.Yeah, cheaper 1800W models certainly have
    enough power to boil 10 qts, and usually have a 20F temperature control step, which would be
    fine for st...

    Packing to move house on Thursday, trying to buy a car (moving out to where I need my own car
    to commute), trying to rest my collarbone that was screwed back together in surgery last
    Tuesday. No, thes...

    allow more wort to drain before putting it in the trash. I usually leave it overnight to cool
    and finish d...

    AC.Do they have 2 phase 440 VAC power for things like heavyduty - high current

    I make vinegar- wine vinegar, cider vinegar, malt vinegar.I've found that my favorite malt
    vinegar isn't my favorite beer. But what makes the best vinegar seems to be starters- without
    hops, and with ...

  • Posted in thread: What does it mean when your S Shaped airlock has internal pressure on 06-11-2015 at 09:56 PM
    It can also be atmospheric air pressure changes - 3 mBar difference (a bit less than 0.1"
    mercury) can push water up 1.2". Looking at the last week's data here on the edge of Boston,
    we've had a swing...

    bottom/filter braid alongside your kettle. Then you wouldn't need to recirculate, as it will
    hold temps well enough, ...

    I have noticed from photos here that a lot of you in the US seem to have very rusty old propane
    tanks. Is it so that you buy a tank and just get it refilled, keeping the same tank
    forever?Here where I...
