    14 day fermentation, 9 days in the keg. I chilled it to serving temp (24 hrs), force carbed it
    for 24 hours @ 30 lbs. So what you see is 23 days grain to glass. Very happy with it. Wife says
    it's a gr...

    Just be to clear the first kit shown has a brand new turkey fryer burner and pot. This does

    you can look...

  • Posted in thread: Mash in a bag? on 04-13-2014 at 02:16 PM
    Wonder if any one else does this. I have a 15 gallon cylindrical cooler w/false bottom that I
    mash in but I still use a large bag to contain the grain in the vessel. Makes clean up a ton
    easier. Not e...

    Buddy gave me 6 oz of locally grown cascade leaf hops in a sealed back. Upon opening the bag I

    reasonable c...

    Thank you for the information. I amgoing to try WL001 next.
