  • Been hovering around other brewers for a long time, wistfully wanting to do it myself (and get the wife's approval). Finally snagged a stellar deal on some startup equipment and haven't stopped brewing or buying more stuff to brew with. Currently running a 16G SS eBiab rig I built with full recirculation and whirlpooling, converted fridge for fermentation chamber and 4 keg chest freezer. I have all the equimpent to convert to 4 perlick taps on the chest freezer, just haven't done it yet.

    I just opened a bottle of this that I brewed a little over two years ago and WOW! The peanut
    butter calmed down and the cacao nibs are, I don't know, more refined tasting. Everything just
    goes really ...

    I'm gonna add one more note, not so much to the recipe, but more on your expectations. Be
    prepared to wait for this to age a bit before judging how it turned out. My blondes tend to
    need at least 4 mo...

    Even if it's gone south, it'll be good practice on that Keezer!

    Robertus, that new hop schedule looks more on the mark.Kolsch is one of my favorites to have on

    +1 to what raouliii said. Every fridge thermostat is wired differently, so toss up some pics. I

    setup. So th...

    +1 for temp control during fermentation. Without temp control you can't repeat your processes,
    you can't control the flavors the yeast impart (or don't). Once I added this to my system my
    beers went f...

    To run power through it to a fridge/freezer you should really have 12 gauge wire. Frys, home
    depot, lowes carries them in spools. But I usually buy 12-3 (12gauge-3wire) romex in the 25'
    coil at home d...
