Now I do.rnrnSometime next spring I intend to do some experiments with Mesquite Pods. Mesquite is a tree down here in Arizona, and the native Americans have been making a bread with it for thousands of years.

    The outside of the keezer is about 90% done. The top "lid" is going to get another layer of oak
    planks across it, which will surround and hold in place the drip tray.The back of the "Tower",

    Thanks for the tip! You've got a nice rig. I do have to ask about the wooden stand though...
    Are the top rails a different material, or treated somehow?LOL, your are not first to ask that
    question.I p...

    I've been eying that burner. The specs on Amazon are pretty slim. What size is the gas line
    connection, and how did you mount it to your stand?From personal experience I would not
    recommend that burne...

    Its probably unpopular because it ties up your brew pot for 10-14 days (or longer, if you are
    one of those that thinks your beer needs that extra time just sitting there).But there are
    people on this ...

    When I started brewing, I was instructed by several books: "Just pour the whole contents of the
    boil kettle into your fermentor."I have been thinking (and recently worrying) about this since
    I started...

    One of the suggestions above was to cover it in paneling, make sure you leave an air space all

    I dont know.This time of year in Arizona, if you walk outside the first thing that will happen

    immediate death...

    You cannot really "convert" to natural gas. It will be alot easier and cheaper in the long run,
    to go out and buy a natural gas burner, valve, fittings and a natural gas flexible hose with
