  • Had a roommate that brewed years ago who got me into it, but I didn't start brewing on my own until recently. Now, I AM ADDICTED (please help!). I'm an all grain apartment brewer - I use 10 gallon mash/lauter tun and boil in an 8 gallon kettle placed over two burners on the stovetop. Works just fine for me. Every now and again I partner up with a buddy (with a yard) and we do 10 gallon batches on his propane burner and keggle. I ferment in 6 gallon glass carboys and temperature control is maintained via a chest freezer and fermwrap on a dual switch controller. I built a Sanyo kegerator and no longer bottle, except to take beer to samplings, etc. I will be starting the American Brewers Guild's Craft Brewers Apprenticeship program in June 2011. Can't wait! Brewing has now taken over my life, my apartment, my bank account, and my future....

    What's the cost benefit to having 4-5 brite tanks vs just one or two and just kegging as
    batches are carbed up? How much is a jacketed 10bbl bright compared to a cooler that will hold
    20 - 1/2bbl sank...

    These are probably too small for you, but perfect for the brewer going pro but wanting to start
    out small. I have seen these twice before. 80 gallon corny kegs. They have a gas in and a
    liquid out, an...

    Definitely helps. Thanks very much!! I think I'll take your advice and have separate lines for
    the brights and sankeys. Sounds much easier (for the bartenders too).A couple more questions,
    when you ha...

    Not a bad idea, thanks for the suggestion! Will certainly keep it in mind.Cheers.

    I’m just curious how you carbonate this much beer, 5BBL? ThanksBright/serving tanks have
    a fitting for a carbonation stone (under the level of the beer). You pressurize the tank and
    blast it wit...

    I've had this problem on and off for the past two years: straight out of the fermenter, my beer
    tastes fine. I just brewed the blue moon clone here (for example) -- and out of the fermenter
    it was dry...

    That actually makes perfect sense and is greatly appreciated! I can see how that kinda setup
    will absolutely help increase my capacity while keeping floorspace to a minimum (and, as you
    said, saving s...

    Build a cold room, and use single wall bright/serving tanks.Their cheaper than jacketed, and
    alot less work than kegging 20 kegs at a time vs. transfering 10 BBLs at once.I'm in the same
    boat. Space i...

    Got some more for you. I use Saf-05 dry yeast for the recipes where the yeast is not listed.

    If I didn't just stock up on CaraMunich II. I would've took some off your hands. You can try
    some of my favorites:Double Dead GuyAmount Item Type % or IBU 14.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US
