Went from extract to Extract/specialty grains, to partial mash, tried BIAB and currently doing all grain 5gallon batches. rnRecently started kegging(2 batches) and already upto 3 5gallon cornies. Only 1 tap in kegerator so far. But there is always another piece of equipment needing upgrading :)

    I think what WI_Wino suggested is what you would need. Your taking your 115v single phase power
    to the input and it will output your 220v 3phase to drive your motor unless I'm missing
    something. Which...

    According to my app the color should be pretty consistent with the color of the actual beer. As
    for adding fruit the only time I've added fruit was using the canned purée and I added it after

    Just doughed in for batch 1 of 2 today. This whole daylight savings time thing isn't so bad
    :ban:It is when your at work and working 13hrs instead of the usual 12.
