    Decided to go all out with all-grain my first batch and after about three months on this forum and reading JP'S how to first batch!!

    and just to set your mind at ease about the Palmer reference. Myself and many other home
    brewers are having great success ( even award winning) with no-chill. I completely understand
    the logic and sci...

    I like that idea. I also have been successfully doing no-chill for about 30 batches now. What
    are you using for a fermentor?

    Odds are people are on this forum in the pursuit of creating a quality homemade product or out
    of admiration for well made commercial examples which for some is out of distaste of the mass
    produced in...

    3-4 fermentors going at maximum, usually have 4 kegs full, but sadly only 2 taps. Constantly
    switching over lines so time to invest in another tap. I bottle a batch or two per year and
    always have som...

    There's a brewery here in Halifax that have a beer called this too. It's amazing but the
    salinity is low. My girlfriend actually didn't pick up on the salt until the Brewer mentioned

    I've been subtracting 20 mins from my hop additions and my IPA's come out great. I don't think
    I could nail some clones or other people's recipes because there's clearly gonna be a
    difference with kee...

    I have been experimenting with no-chill brewing, which for those who do not know is a method of
    not quickly chilling your wort after boil. I've done about 30 batches this way and all have
    been success...

  • Posted in thread: Looking to upgrade on 06-29-2016 at 09:57 AM
    My next two upgrades are going to be picking up a nice grain mill and building a dedicated mill
    and storage area. Then I'm gonna finish my fermentation chest. I have only one 5 gallon space
    now. When ...

    In stages also but I've just today completed a stainless setup. Kettle, fermentor, and serving
    are all stainless.Other things have been impactful but having everything stainless was
    important to me.

    TIP: Bring lots of money, because beer is super expensive! Thule is a common beer there. The
    challenge for brewing beer in Iceland is that its very hard to grow ingredients, so everything
