  • A buddy of mine brought over a homebrew one day... and my wife bought me a brewing kit on my birthday a month later. Never looked back!

    I use your basic 5-gallon igloo MLT with a turkey fryer full boil, and batch sparge. Still a pretty basic setup, but it works!

    I had a very similar experience earlier this year. In my case, the culprit was the virtue that
    my LHBS was selling roast at 300SRM instead of 500SRM, which the recipe technically called for.
    I have si...

    Another vote for Brewer's Art. They specialize in Belgians. Though you're really going to want
    to get dinner there, too... amazing.

    That said, I use my LG dishwasher on the steam sanitize cycle for my bottles. It also has a Jet
    Dry reservoir. I've been bottling with it for a year and a half and have never had the first
    problem wit...

    Thanks for the input everyone! So, if I don't dock for the conical, what other equipment would
    be a better purchase? I already have a fermentation fridge (chest freezer with thermostat) and
    multiple. ...

    undisturbed for 2...
