I would recommend the latest compilation of The Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian
and the follow up to it, The Homebrewers Companion. The latter get into brewing a bit deeper.

Treadmills have electric motors and controls that can be adapted to brewing equipment.:)I
agree. Throw that treadmill motor on a grain mill!

The reason not to carb at that pressure longer than 36 hrs is over carbonation. You can easily
add more carb, but getting rid of extra carbonation is a PITA.

Ok. Lets try this again. 2-3 weeks to ferment your beer in a primary. No need to rack to a
secondary. Then it's time to bottle or keg. If I bottle, it sits in the bottles for 4 weeks

I started with a MrBeer kit. It introduced me to brewing and I actually made some pretty good

naturally carb in...

Congrats on the partial mash! Sounds like you had fun. The LBK is a great little fermentor that
can be used for all techniques of brewing. I still do small AG batches in mine to test out

Blinchman is the best. But you pay for it. I own a megapot and love it! It boils off a little
extra, but that can be adjusted in the calculations. For the quality and price they can't be
beat! If my m...

From what I understand, they are a small outfit. If you have issues, send them an email. Let
them know in that email that you are a home brewer. That's the only way they warranty. If you
own a LHBS, t...
