    Reviews are scarce... Has anyone brewed on the gas version of this system yet?

    Well this was a miserable failure... I doughed in the quinoa, buckwheat and instant rice @40C,
    then raised to 70C and held for an hour. Unfortunately, there was no conversion as the SG was
    1.005!Any t...

    Ok. I'll knock the bittering hops in half to get it closer to 20 IBUs. Going to brew Thursday.
    Will mash the quinoa, rice and buckwheat together and then add the sugar to the boil.

    Brewed this yesterday and the batch sparge went so smooth! Skipped the mash-out and sparged
    with boiling water twice. Ended up with a 73% efficiency and had a great time brewing with a

    I made my first starter yesterday before seeing this thread. My beer is a 1.073 6 gallon batch,
    so I made a 1.5L starter in a growler to be safe. Anyway, I have been intermittently shaking it
