    From the looks of the it you could always add a third tap between and a little above (or below)
    the other two.

    I agree with you. The beer came out really good but not what I wanted. It was a really good
    learning experience. I'm glad I tried it but, as I have said, my next attempt will be with NO
    crystal. Every...

    I can't really answer the HOW of it. I can only say it worked. I measured the OG with a
    refractometer and double checked it with my hydrometer. Same goes for the FG. Initially with a
    refractometer and...

    I had a few pours of this recipe last night and while not a Thunderstruck clone it was
    excellent. The dry hopping really came through. I was quite pleasantly surprised after all the
    negativity about t...

    Actually very well. I little bit of condensation forming inside, even with the Eva-Dry device
    inside. But this is the monsoon season in AZ so our humidity is way up (for us). And the first
    few weeks I...

    Thanks, I appreciate the CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. Most folks have just said "it's way too much"
    without giving me a reason. All I'm trying to do is find out what tastes like what. If I make a
    mistake, ...

    All I can say (not being a scientist or master brewer) is that it must have been the WLP090
    (San Diego Super Strain) yeast. But I really don't know. I know that I checked with a
    refractometer and doub...

    You can also use 3 or 4 pounds of ice in a cooler with about a gallon of water with a pump to
    circulate it if you really want to chill it fast. Here in AZ my water sits in a black holding
    tank after t...

    OK! I get it! You don't like Crystal malt. I've changed the recipe and reduced the crystal by
    almost half and increased the pale by the same amount keeping the grain bill at 16 pounds. I
    know, still t...

    I use mine with a good outdoor rated extension and coming to a boil takes no longer than
    without the extension. I had to since our mobile home has really crappy electrical and if I put
    the GF on the s...
