  • 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.

    kitchen table (I'm one of those weird people, lol). Called a local brewing company to see if
    they had a sani...

  • Posted in thread: Best Design for Glycol Chiller on 08-19-2016 at 03:38 PM

    with elec...

    Terrible. Wrap in foam and overnight to me. I like off tasting brews! PS: It will be fine.

  • Posted in thread: Do you need to pbw your pre-boil equip? on 07-24-2016 at 11:31 PM
    Yes and no. I regularly clean my entire system after a brew. I have a Stay in Place SS manifold
    that I do not take apart anymore. I do use PBW on my manifold, pumps, MLT, and Brew Kettle. I
    cycle hot ...

    also take a...
