  • Started with a Mr. Beer that had been given to me for Father's Day. Didn't use it until that autumn. The beer turned out good and I wanted to try something more challenging. Went to extract/steeped grains on the stovetop. Then a few months later to all-grain. Currently brewing in my garage, 5 gallon batches, with a huge freezer/fermenter set up that can handle up to 6 batches at a time.
  • I maintain a rotation of 4 brews that everyone here likes: Kestrel Amber Ale, Goldfinch Cream Ale, Kingbird IPA and my own APA.

    Can't you just switch the orifice on the burner to this - might work. Hadn't seen one of
    those before. I'll send them and email to see what they have to say. Thanks for the link.

    made it unusa...
