Posted in thread: new Northern Brewer catalog. megapot 1.2 on 12-11-2013 at 08:41 PM
I have an 8 gallon MegaPot 1.2, I bought it just to upgrade my sparge water kettle which used
to be only 5G and I needed more. So I don't have any ball valve (I lift and dump the kettle
into the mash ...

It's just a wonder how commercial breweries don't use bazooka tubes. Being superior and
all.Commercial breweries brew on a far far larger scale and don't use equipment anywhere near
equivalent to home...
Posted in thread: Does anyone else think Sam Adam's beer sucks on 12-10-2013 at 09:22 PM
I've posted in here in the past, I see this thread is still going at 39 pages. Sam Adams makes
damn good beer, they really do. I can't see how anyone could think it "sucks". I think
Budweiser sucks bu...

Ya, grain can get under, but vorlaufing eliminates that issue.If grain gets under it most

valve, I had to ...

more frustrating....ok maddening parts of the last brew days and 90% of it comes from me
rushing to get th...

Bro, I think you need to re-evaluate your process if you keep getting burned and losing wort.
Just go over everything that went wrong and think about how you can avoid it in the future.
About the wors...
Posted in thread: More time in the fridge = better beer than more time in the fermenter/bottle? on 12-10-2013 at 01:23 AM
Wasn't sure where to post this so I figured here. Anyhow, in the years I've been brewing I've
come to notice more time for my beer in the fridge seems to make the most difference in final
product. In ...
Posted in thread: 10 Gal rubbermaid with false bottom efficiency? on 12-09-2013 at 03:36 PM
As RMikeVT said above, at lot of variables affect efficiency. Anyhow, I have the 10g Rubbermaid
mash tun and also do not use a false bottom but instead use the bazooka tube screen (love it).
I also cr...
Posted in thread: Upgraded the SS braid and got an extra 12+pts to efficiency= YES ! on 11-04-2013 at 06:13 PM
