  • Posted in thread: Do any of you just mostly use buckets for fermenting? on 05-27-2009 at 06:19 PM
    Buckets rule for all the reasons you stated. Just use a sponge to clean (right after they are
    emptied) and they will last. I only use glass for lagering.

    it out and ...

    Everyone's system is different. Shoot for one pint per minute into the boil pot, maximum while
