    ABOUT ME

  • I love Brewing beer!!!! I started in college and from there I was hooked. It is hard brewing in the Southeastern part of New Mexico since there is no homebrew shops. But I will continue to brew. rnI have a Bachelors in Geology from New Mexico State University. I am currently working as a Staff Scientist in Environmental Consulting.

  • I wanted to learn to brew and I took a college class on homebrewing. I did not learn much so I had to do my own research on it. I love it so far. Its been a year. I have a three vessel system that made out of two kegs and a cooler. I try to brew with the season which is fun to do cause you get to try beer you may have never done.

    problems. All the ele...

    You were running 33 amps, if your wiring and components aren't rated for that then you could
    have had a very bad day... Seriously. Underguaged wire => heat build up in wires => insulation

    Nice man. Looks like you have it all figured out. I think your diagrams will help me out. What
    did you use for your electronics? Also what program you use to draw your diagrams?

    mast tun. Would...

    So I am wanting to make this set up. I spent time on it and seems good to me but what do you
    all think? I would love the input to see if I forgot something? Do I even need the
    stirrer?:mug:
