  • We never went the Bottle Route and started kegging right away. We have our own little club of three guys. We were extract brewers for about a year before we moved to All Grain. Bigger is better! Do not buy a 15 gallon item when you can get a 30 for just a little more.

    Bugs don't drink that much. I always leave them in. My favorite is Grasshoppers as they give a
    slightly nutty flavor.

    Curious - why do you filter during the mash? Doesn't recirculating through the grain bed filter
