    Using the calculator on the GF site and a 60 min. boil, my volumes have been exact every time
    over the past year.I've only done two batches so far, but I used the GF online calculator and
    it's dead on...

    Some pics of my keezer top, sorry if this doesnt belong in this forum...Looks good, wyowolf. Is
    that poplar? If you've never finished poplar before, it can get REAL ugly if you try to stain
    it. Here's...

    Has anyone else had an issue with their Grainfather having the support ring slipping down into
    the boiler when attempting to lock the grain basket for sparging? I have done quite a few brews
    with mine...

    It warmed up enough tonight that I spent some time in my unheated garage with an Oliva G
    robusto. I'm not a big fan of box-pressed cigars, but I really like these things. Glad I bought

    I’ve seen more than a few posters say that they throttle down the volume, during the
    mash, to get very low, or no, flow down the overflow. TBH, I’ve always had mine going
    full bore and usu...

    12 pounds of grain, asked for 5 gallons of water, and 3.75 gallons of sparge water.Where did
    you get the figures for your mash and sparge volumes? For a 5.25 gal. batch, the Grainfather
    calculator cal...

    You deserved an answer. Cuban Cigars and Non-Cuban cigars. Part of the normalization with Cuba
    might have been opening the cigar market, but that was a stupid idea, because of the tons of
    Cuban brands...

    Alright you guys! I'll probably kick myself when I hear the answer to this question, but what

    It's a long shot I suppose, but if you suspect that the gas may not be CO2, you can test it by

    limewater cloudy....
