  • Started right out of college in 1988 and continued for several years before going into hiatus. Started back up again in 2008 with better equipment.rnrnStarted all grain eight years ago using an all grain setup (Gott/Rubbermaid twin cooler variety), 15 gallon, 8 gallon and 4 gallon stainless brew pots, Hurricane Burner, 6.5 gallon primary carboy w/blowoff tube, 13 gallon vittle vault backup primary, a handful of 5 gallon secondary carboys, 16 soda kegs and 3 CO2 tanks.rnrnAbout five years ago I built a Kal inspired RIMS system with NG burners and a 6x4 foot commercial exhaust hood in my basement. With the ten gallon batches I don't drink enough beer to justify brewing that often, but otherwise it's a great setup.

    Thanks, guys. I hadn't thought of that, but I will definitely mix in pils or 2-row 50/50 and
    give it a whirl. I'm thinking of hopping for Hallertau or similar.

    Howdy gangBeen offline for way to long. Looking to make a beer (ale or lager) that has a good
    malty flavor but has a clean, crisp, dry finish. Really don't like sweet, cloying beers. I
    thought maybe I...

    Putting this on my "to read" list. My house water is terrible and I plan in using distilled
    when I start brewing in the next month or so.The last few batches I've made have been amazing.

    I removed and bypassed the existing thermostat and wired in a STC-1000 controller mounted in
    the lower front panel. Using the existing wires, a heater module was installed into the upper
    area between...

    I ran into a similar problem when I hooked up my stout faucet and beer gas tank; I was never
    able to find a straightforward answer to "how do i set up a stout faucet?"...So, after a long
    time of trial...

    That's excellent. My MIL just moved from Arlington Heights to Milwaukee, so we're on 94
    basically the whole way to Wisconsin. Wife's family has a house on Lake Geneva, so summers are
    a good bet too. I...
