  • I went all grain because the kits I got from William's did not list any of the ingredients and I wanted more control. I brew once a month. IPA and Stout are my favorite styles but I have started doing a ton of lagers in the last year. --- Sept 5, 2010 First Brew Day --- April 2, 2011 First All Grain --- Dec 20, 2011, Brew Stand Built --- March 20, 2012 Kegging System Built

    Yeh, it will work. Even better if you have O2 to oxygenate.People might say that is under

    and fermented...
