  • Madison, Wi
  • Started brewing beer again after a 2 year break because I had no where to brew and now I couldn't be happier. Other then brewing my other passion is disc golf. There is nothing better then a sunny day and a nice homebrew after a good round of disc golf. I would still consider myself a beginner and I bet I will be asking lots of questions.

    THe best thing to do is make a insulated box with a heat source. The cheatest thing I can think
    of would be a big cardboard box lined with with styrofoam with a heating blanket so something
    like that.

    I want to start to make smaller batchs so I can do some experimenting and comparisons. For a
    2.5 gallon batch can I use a 3 gallon carboy as a primary fermenter?
