Posted in thread: 2 free kegs!! What to do on 07-04-2012 at 09:57 PM
I brew with a three keggle system. I would agree with the priority: first keg becomes brew
kettle, second keg becomes HLT. The reason the mash tun is the lowest priority to make out of a

I've only done one partigyle and it was a while ago, but I did use BeerSmith. What I did was

I was feeling pretty excited that I found this wrench for the same purpose on my own and was

Posted in thread: Going back to extract for 1 batch after 5 years of AG Question. on 12-05-2011 at 03:53 AM
I too did an extract batch recently after a long stretch of all grain, mostly because I wanted
beer and didn't have a lot of time to brew. I just steeped in my full boil volume and it was
