    Interesting results after first use. First surprise: as the boil increased, the basket had a
    tendency to float up and bob and sink back . I will be adding some clips on the top of the keg
    rim to ancho...

    Thanks for all the great ideas posted. Here is my version using a flour sifter for the base, a
    cake / pie ring for the top and the McMaster 37% screen. The one twist is I installed the flour
    sifter up...

    Great post / thread! I work for Electrolux and can get my hands on a D/W in many states of
    repair. Most tubs for a D/W are poly plastic- easy to cut and modify. Did anyone actually
    consider cutting th...

    Has anyone found a source for these in plastic? Stainless is terrific but I can't shell out

    I just started fermenting in uncut sankey kegs... I would love to get one of these.

    I just picked up a keg from an auction and will turn it into my primary fermentor. I have
    been reading a ton of good stuff posted on transfers etc. Has anyone installed a ball valve on
    the bottom of...

  • Posted in thread: Leftover meringue in the boil kettle? on 02-14-2011 at 03:59 PM
    Yes this was the first time using a whirlpool / pump set up. I used to just gravity drain
    through a reverse chiller straight into the fermenter. I must say this stuff was really stiff
    like Cool Whip- ...

    Okay this was my first all grain on the new Brutus I built. Also the ingredients / cracked
    grain from a new supplier. At the end of the whirlpool / chill down after I had pumped the brew
    into the ferm...
