the burner have ...

Yep, I initially bought a 10g kettle and soon realized that my 5g (~6.5g - 7g boil) was close
to the top. If you walk away for a minute, chances are you may have a boil over. I then went
for a 13g ket...
Posted in thread: Mash - Water to grain or grain to water? on 01-14-2013 at 11:36 PM
I initially warm my cooler with hot water. After about 15 minutes, I slowly add my strike

Posted in thread: How long does a propane tank last? on 11-21-2012 at 09:44 PM
I have a 2 burner setup for my strike/sparge and BK. I'm getting about 3 brews. The last brew

Gordon,Another question if you don't mind. Do recommend lagering at 32F after 2 weeks (as in

I'm going wi...
