  • Gravity fed all-grain system. I make 5 Gallon batches. I have two Stainless Steel Mash/Lauter Tuns with false bottoms. One is 8 gallons for normal beers, while the other is a 15 gallon for the high gravity stuff. I use a 10 gallon round cooler for my hot water tank, and have a fly sparge arm. I use a 10 gallon stainless steel boiling pot, which I use to heat up my sparge water while the grains are mashing.

    I always add some rice hulls to the mash when I do an oatmeal stout, or any wheat beers. The
    hulls create a better filter bed and help prevent the stuck sparge. works for me every time.

    also stated t...

    I constantly test the gravity of my wort as I run it off so I can stop when the gravity of the
    runnings get to 1.008. I just use my hydrometer and take the reading without cooling. I check
    the temp of...

    The instructions with my O2 kit said 45 seconds for beers under 1.060, and 90 seconds for thos

    an SRM of 64...

    Funny, I was just reading a book last night called "Secrets of the Master Brewers" (Highly
