Posted in thread: First All grain batch, too much grain in fermentor? on 02-24-2014 at 11:31 PM
Was also wondering, I use a bazooka filter and I realized the holes are not that small (it's
small but, the starch and very fine particles can go through). Should I use something else?Does
the Grain b...

Thanks, glad to know it will settle out cause it was really crowded of grain and very small
particles almost like flour. (I would have been surprised if it didn't but I wanted to make
sure).Yeah I sho...

I made my first all grain batch and it went ok. I had a stuck sparge so I had to remove the
thick grain puch around my bazooka screen and It got stuck a few time (I think I opened the
valve way to hig...

147628Yeah sound like a plan. Thanks guys :)I'll have to make some testing. My IC prevents 100%
coverage but I guess that's not that bad.

I was wondering how do you (if you do) protect your wort when you brew outside. Specially when
you're cooling the wort. Flies could drop inside (That's sweet heh) along many other dirty
things. I cann...
Posted in thread: 8.45GAL Kettle for 6GAL batch? on 09-11-2013 at 01:53 PM
Thank for the help guys. I think I'll finally buy a 13.75GAL kettle since the price difference
won't be so different because of all the other parts (valve, prob etc). This way I'll be ready
for 10GAL ...
Posted in thread: 8.45GAL Kettle for 6GAL batch? on 09-10-2013 at 02:06 PM
I make 6GAL (23L) batches. I'm about to buy a 8.45GAL(32L) SS kettle (2 holes, 1 for probe, 1
valve) for 32$ (about 50$ with the probe and valve).Would that be enough for the batch I make?
Any Pros an...

I think the 52 qt mashtun will do very nicely. Aluminum is a much better conductor of heat than
stainless steel. If you want to save some money try finding a 15 gallon aluminum kettle/stock
pot. You n...

Having a 15-20 gallon kettle (or a 15 gallon keggle if you can find one) would be ideal for a
10 gallon finished batch. If you go the stainless steel route I recommend getting a high
quality one that ...

I would go for the biggest kettle you can afford and/or can bring to a boil. You'll never
regret it.This won't hurt if I do half a batch? And what do you think of tri-ply for kettle or
only plain SS?
