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.

    There was no issue with using the yeast from the bottom of the keg.The beer came out great. If
    I were to do it again I would skip building the yeast up in stages. My second stage blew out of

    I've been eying that burner. The specs on Amazon are pretty slim. What size is the gas line

    boil kettle into your fermentor."I have been thinking (and recently worrying) about this since
    I started...
