  • Started drinking craft beers a few years ago, really liked Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Ordered a Coopers Kit and it escalated from there, went to full grain after a short period of extract and partial grain. Went through various methods using induction cook tops, different mash tuns, and chiller rigs. I currently use dual 1800W induction cook tops and a 30qt. saucepan for a brew kettle, a chugger pump, with a Blichhman Hop Rocket connected to a DudaDiesel chiller. Still using my Coopers Fermenters.
  • Probably a nice hoppy pale ale.

    Isn't Reflectix only rated for around 180 degrees? I use it on my Blichmann 20 g and 15 g SS
    kettles that I use for my mashtun and HLT. It works great for those vessels, but don't think
    I'll use it on...

    Here is a link to a boil demonstration of my induction brewing setup. I plan on adding
    Reflectix to the saucepan and lid, this should reduce boil time by quite a bit. [ame]

    I have been trying to find a source for a 6 gallon Corny style keg, my equipment is best suited
    to 6 gallon batches. Does anyone know of a source for this size of keg?

    That thing looks like it would boil-over if you looked at it funny - you don't have any issues
    with having so little pan-space above wort level?I get a nice rolling boil and have no issues

    Water is a big factor in beer flavor and hop perception. Do you know what your mineral levels
    are in your water? Without a water report you are flying blind. A little gypsum to get the
    sulfate levels ...

    This is what I use to brew in the basement, you can't get much simpler than this. Dual 1800
    watt induction cook tops and a 30 qt. sauce pan.

    Youch! 118 ppm of sodium? That needs to be diluted with RO water. You don't need any chloride
    added at all, and the alkalinity is way too high as well. The sulfate is also too high for
    quite a few bee...
