I did my first all grain yesterday. One thing I thought I needed to do was to sparge at the
same rate as the runoff. The problem was with only 5 gal. of water the sparge arm would not
rotate and it wa...

motor and how often it would run (as it runs up your electric bill) to "fill in" the extra
space with coldne...

I have a chest freezer that is almost not tall enough to hold a carboy. I recently got a
conical fermenter and want to fit it into the freezer so I can do lagers in it. To do this I
