Glassblower,I've only done 2 of the 15 minute brews, an Amarillo and a Chinook. The only thing
I can say, is to load up your beer with low AA hops. My Amarillo came out great, I got the
recipe from th...

I tried the recipe the guys on basic brewing did and I thought I'd add my 2 cents. My history
is 28 batches brewed, going full circle. Liquid Extract -> Mini Mash -> Small Batch All Grain
-> Full All ...

Yeah, I did an All Simcoe earlier this summer and it turned out pretty good. In the future,
I'll just use the Simcoe for bittering though. I wanted to experiment with the taste and found
that I like C...

So the beer is a winner. Outrageous aroma and the proper amount of bitterness. I'm glad I have
2 cases of this stuff. Thanks all for your input. It's a solid recipe and will give you a great

Since I was in a rush the night I brewed, I added the hot and cold break to the fermenter. When
I dry hopped the 1oz of Simcoe, I racked to secondary to separate it from the trub/break
material. Of co...

In retrospect, the cheapest alternative is to go to Plumbing Supply as previously recommended.
All you'd need is two 3/8" compression x Female Hose thread fittings and one Male Hose Thread x

Good to hear I'm not alone. Brass fittings.com as mention before is probably cheaper than the
depot. Your other option is to trim off the old hose at the chiller and reattach/ reclamp the
newer hose. ...

to the de...
