Posted in thread: Five gallon batch, thirty gallon pot? on 02-12-2013 at 05:43 PM
Hey y'all.I'm experimenting with recipes again, and it's been pointed out to me that I could
always just brew small batches instead of big ones, thus reducing the risk inherent in having

Thanks for all the feedback. I think I'll go with my gut here (which also says to drop the
adjuncts). I hadn't thought about doing a pot-caramelization step, but that makes sense, as I
do that in my s...

I'm circling around a recipe for a Dark Mild - I want something that's low-alcohol, reasonably
malty, low-hop, but also interesting and drinkable. I've had some homebrew milds that tasted

For the record, I ordered the 9396K67 for the outer valve connection (between the valve and the
pot), and they were too big. Instead of sitting inside the keeper washer, they were the same
size as the...

The rust seems to be coming from either the heating element or its base. I used a 220V ULWD
element, but I think the exterior to the element itself is mild steel. I might have been better
served with ...

Nope. I just looked at it today, actually. Still totally sealed up. I ended up making a copper
tube instead- worked pretty well, I just had to be imaginative with the parts at the local
plumbing shop ...

For the record, and I don't know if you're even watching this thread anymore, your saying stuff
like "I know you guys don't have the time, experience, and knowledge" better explains the
slight debate ...

Yeah, it's worth noting that most of the discussion here about lauter speeds largely impact
extract efficiency. For homebrewers that's typically not the biggest deal- if you're only
hitting 65%, throw...

I use this stuff: seems to have the best deal on it per foot, although if you dig you can
find retailers who will sell you a whole spool (50 ft) at a better price shipped. That said, I
