    Just make sure you don't forget it with a little bit of water and a copper pick up tube that
    touches the bottom. Or you could have oxidized holes in the bottom of your kettle next time you
    go to brew....

    The biggest advantage I see to the flask is the ability to boil, cool and ferment your starter
    in 1 vessel. I believe the reduced possibility of infection comes more from this fact than the
    shape. Fla...

    Unique build, but it looks like it works really well with the bottom drains. I like it!Just put
    together a bottom drain mash tun myself that I'm looking forward to testing out this week.

    Per Randy Kosher in "Radical Brewing" pellets yield about 25% more ibus than whole hops. That
    matches fairly well with whats I've read elsewhere. You could play around with some software
    and see how t...

    Not to highjack this thread, but I have a recipe that calls for .2g/l of hops. What is this
    amount?Scale it to your recipe size... A 5 gallon batch is about 19L so .2*19=3.8g (which seems
    like a reall...

    I don't use whole leaf very much, but what's the ratio? Is it one for one?Per Randy Kosher in
    "Radical Brewing" pellets yield about 25% more ibus than whole hops. That matches fairly well

  • Posted in thread: Pellets vs leaf hops on 02-11-2013 at 10:36 PM
    I personally use all whole leaf hops. Mainly because I just prefer unprocessed ingredients
    whenever possible. Secondarily, because my set up was created with leaf hops in mind, pellets
    leave me with a...

    yes, your calculations are correct.

    I use shelving similar to your first option and it has worked flawlessly for me. My HLT and
    burner sit on the shelf next to the mash tun. The BK sits on its burner on the floor and
    gravity feeds every...

    Put the garbage bag in a bucket for support then dump the mash tun in. We are fortunate in
    Portland to have curbside food-waste compost pick up, so I use the green compostable bags but
    they aren't tha...
