excellent pot. It is sold by Amazon for under 50.00 with free shipping and it is very

I have done used a slurry before and it worked very well. Mr Malty has a "Slurry" option for

Posted in thread: New CO2 tank, is this full? on 12-12-2013 at 02:41 AM

Plastic buckets are great for 5G batches. Easy to clean, cheap and safe. I agree, the horror

At 1.020 it may be done. Especially if you missed your mash temps. Pitching more yeast won't
