  • 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.

    I am somewhat concerned about sanitation so we now remove the hose and stone and boil it. I got
    3/8 silicone hose and while it does not hold very well on the little pancake filter, it is easy
    to remov...

    Put a DIN on the tap and have the display show the pouring of the Brew!

    You could use plastic soda bottles if you had this: also sell one for a gallon growler. They
    are handy if you want to take a growler, just be careful not to over pressure. A bottle bomb
    while you are...

    For sure you have a leak. It is easy for the OUT post to leak. I have had to replace poppets
    over time. It seems that the OUTs have the issue mostly but sometimes the IN as well. We have
    found beer on...

    HSA? Hijack: Well sorta, we are talking about Oxygen. Here is a link to an OLD brew strong
    podcast with a UC Davis professor. It does not talk about HSA until 4:25 into the podcast and
    does not get to...

    We use 10 gal igloos for 11 gal batches (yes they are full to the top). They hold the Mash Temp
    very well, especially compared to a SS Mash Tun (We also have a 30 gal Stout MLT and a HERMS).
    I think w...

    If you like really good flavor and aroma hops, get the Blickman Hop Rocket and use leaf hops.
    The difference is amazing. We are going to do a "wet hop" IPA in early September when the hops

  • Posted in thread: Pre boil gravity too high? on 08-13-2014 at 12:46 AM
    We always adjust to OG. If too low, we remove the hops and boil down (and add the late hops for
    the correct time). If we are too heavy, we simply add boiling water. We do 23 gal batches so
    adding a ga...
