    I recirculate fairly slowly; perhaps 1 quart per minute through a keggle false bottom. One
    thing I have found with the recirculating no-sparge system is that crush on the grain matters
    far more. I sta...

    I have a bottom center drain on both kettles. They are the primary drains hooked up to the
    pumps, and I think they work great. Having another port is not an issue, though. You just plug
    it up when not...

    I have now set up both of the kegs with a bottom drain. It makes cleaning very nice, and fully
    emptying the kegs with a gravity feed possible. And yes, if I were to do it again I would flip
    the keg an...

    I will try and get some updated photographs this weekend.

    Ask as many questions as you like. I have changed the way that I whirlpool and drain the kettle
    since the photographs were taken. I now have a bottom drain that feeds the pump on the BK. The
    whirlpool...

    I took the two gallons down to somewhere between a pint and a quart. I actually got to the
    portion where the temperature starts to rise past 220F. And then I watched it like a hawk. It
    was the thickne...

    Joshua,Couple questions about your process...- So you don't sparge, total boil volume goes into
    the BK/HLT right away? - You recirc just the MLT first to set the grainbed?- Once set (runnings
    clear), ...

    What is your carmelization process?I took 2 gallons of the first runnings and boiled it down
    until I was essentially making caramel. I make caramel quite often as a part of normal cooking,
    so it was j...

    I recently did my first kettle caramelized scottish ale, and am loving how it is going so far.
    The depth of flavor is excellent. I could see enjoying it in a stout or other dark beers, and
    have even s...

    The guys at Ska were awesome. They sold me two kegs after contacting them through probrewer.
    They just stuck fedex labels on the outside of the kegs and shipped them to my door. The Fedex
    guy was amus...
