    Got my flashed stc-1000+ wired up today, and it works like a champ. Thanks for the programming
    videos on your site. Very well done and makes it easy to get up and running. My Irish Red is

    Subscribed and email added. Sounds like this might be good for a Kickstarter campaign to open a
    small manufacturing facility. (Or just outsource some of the labor to the Cedar Rapids
    area...;) )

    Ian and gwcr: Both look normal to me. Fermentation can give off funky smells, but without the

    Agree with the mgohring above. Depends on your methods. Batch sparging can take significantly
    less time than with a traditional sparge arm. I have hit 80-85% efficiency with my last few
    brews with bat...

    Technically, all you need to take the step from BIAB to using a MT is the vessel to be used as
    the MT. When I went from extract to BIAB, I bought a 7.5 gallon turkey fryer pot and propane
    burner for 5...

    Great idea. Two 1L bottles in a pitcher and then you don't have to explain to everyone how to
