    Nope. Other than wet grains are heavy, and I still have that eye-bolt on there, and not a
    pulley. But it works like a champ.I should make a video or something, but I've been woking on
    the house and ki...

    Plenty of comments about how your numbers are not at all that far off and tasty beer and all
    that.As for cloudyness however, do not associate cloudy wort with cloudy beer. Dump it all in,
    it will sett...

    You can get a quality powderhorn for about $25. Should be waterproof for as long as you need it

    Just saw a post in the beginners section regarding Norther Brewers and Midwest Brewers new
    fermenter, the Big Mouth Bubbler. A bit of research shows that the lids of these are not

    Bit late to the party, but if you BIAB, you won't get a great crush at your Local store, so you
    almost need your own. But it's built in as part of the deal. Instead of the cost of a
    burner/HLT and Mas...

    How are you coming by so much dried corn kernels where you cannot just obtain them already made
    into corn meal? Google showing 50lbs of cornmeal at about $15. I'm sure it's a pia to ship, but
    there's ...

    So yeah. Works and everything. Where the pulley is (or o-ring as I have now) pulls out and is
    three boards. The two side boards have a dowel in the end of them, and the cross bar has holes
    that line u...

    As with any brew or hobby equipment I have, it will never truly be finished, but yes, It's in
    working order. I've made a couple batches on it, needs more shelving on the left side, but it's
    up and fun...

    My concern was more about the stress from the side loosening the hooks in the wood, not about
    the metal failing. I don't think I was clear in my post, and perhaps even if I was, it's
    probably not a si...
