    In 2010 I wrote:

    My wife got me a Mr. Beer kit for my birthday last year. I did about three of those before I went into making my own extract-2 gal batches. I learned alot and made a few mistakes. After my 5th total batch I upgraded to 5 gal partial/tea batches.

    Lately I have been getting to the partial mash stage which satisfies my love for the technical side. But in late Sept 2010 I may have gotten over my head with a big AG beer. I am short on the proper equipment but I can make it work!

    I had a few batches recently that have been skunked by light. Now that I have learned that lesson I have my self made "A Lil Sumpin Sumpin" inspired clone. Since I have worked most of the major kinks out I believe my friends and I will finally be able to enjoy consistently good beer.

    Setup: Piece by piece precept upon precept improvement in my equipment, 5+ gal prim, new 5+gal secondary, 3 gal

    Be sure that the area to be sealed stays clean. When you put things in the bag make sure no
    dust or oils are in that area. I have had no problems with pellet hops. Also the bag needs to
    be totally fla...

    Thanks guys! Rob, your response is right on target. I really do try to adopt a policy of "no
    molecule left behind".It is easer to compensate for this loss with larger batches, and smaller
    batches it s...

    Has anyone tried this? I just brewed a 3 gal ag Pale Ale batch and tried to calculate for break
