    ABOUT ME

  • Fishing,golfing,photography,football,hockey,gardening,raising horses,many pets,and of course brewing beer.
  • John
  • Rock, Christian, Country
  • It all started with a Mr. Beer kit, like so many others out there. Charlie Pap's classic book got me further into it and then later John Palmer's book continued my knowledge. I got into kegging very quickly and after several years on the stove with extract and then partial mash, I slowly got into all grain and I got pretty good at it, with my limited setup. I decided to upgrade and make a single tier rig and in the middle of a Brutus build I converted to an electric Kal clone. Best thing I ever did and I love the quality of the beer I make, as it is truly pub quality. Stop by sometime if your in the area and have a pint with me and take a load off!

    Congrats on the new system. I have a Kal clone so it's fairly similar to yours. Keep it simple
    the first time Pale Ale, Blonde Ale, Brown Ale, etc. Also keep track of your first 5 brews and
    take good ...

    Well to be fair the amount of boiloff per hour is completely adjustable by how high you set the
    heat or how vigorously you boil... I am for 1 gallon per hour boil off in my setup when boiling
    11.5-12g...
