Posted in thread: Must fight the urge to be a beer snob.... on 05-25-2013 at 12:27 PM
I drink a fair amount of my homebrew and a good amount of craft beer, but I can tell you one
thing. When I'm sitting on the lake in the 90 degree TN summer sun the last thing I want is
some big craft ...
Posted in thread: If you could start over and had $1000 what equipment would you get on 05-05-2013 at 10:09 PM
A propane turkey fryer type burner is cheap as is a 44qt pot with a strainer basket. I do biab
beers up to 9%abv this way and they come out fantastic. A Rubbermaid tub and some frozen

Posted in thread: New kettle and worried about getting a good boil going on 03-08-2013 at 12:06 PM
I couldn't imaging boiling 9 gallons of wort on my kitchen stove. I brew outside with a turkey
fryer burner an it really gets a good boil going. Boiling over all on the stove and in the
house is not p...
Posted in thread: Best Label Removing Method Ever? I think so. on 02-10-2013 at 02:09 PM
I use primarily the shorter Sierra style bottle and have never had a problem removing labels by
filling the bottle with super hot water and then soaking in a sink of hot tap water. Let them
soak for a...
Posted in thread: Star San is making me think twice about home brewing on 01-19-2013 at 10:10 PM
I use it all the time and don't even think twice about getting the diluted solution on my skin.
Heck I put my hands all in a bucket of the stuff. I have gotten the concentrated solution on my
