  • Recieved a beer kit for fathers day 2004, and never looked back. Did about 4 batches of extract and read many many books. Youtube got me curious, and a local brew buddy showed me the ropes to all grain. I do ten gallon batches with a two cooler gravity set up and looking to upgrade that system. I have one blichmann conical, would like to have two more.
  • I do a lot of pale ales, IPA, stout, Hefe's and pilsners. This year I planed to upgrade my brew system into a three tier system, with three burners.
  • 10 gal Pale Ale 6.5%
  • 10 Gal IPA 6.5% cascade and magnum

    I was kinda offended and laughed at the same time reading the FAQ of this site. And the price

    High maintence customer that NB does not need. I never once had an issue with their products or

    Even when I am sober I make stupid mistakes. Transferred my wert into the conical and dropped

    if you want portability, fill some growlers right before you leave. But that new kit will work
