    Well? What the heck happened? I want to see video of him jumping for joy around the Christmas
    tree like a little boy.The gift was a success. I think he was a little overwhelmed but happy.
    he definatel...

    If you make it so that the ends, outside the kettle, are bent so they're facing down, it's
    better. That way, any drips/leaks will (by virtue of physics and gravity) drip outside the
    kettle (unless he ...

    That's just so sad... :(I have a comment about being better at suction, but I'll keep it 'G'

    Awesome! Your husband is a lucky man. Have fun brewing together :)Ha! I won't be brewing with
    him unless he decides to brew up a batch of rum and coke. This hobby is all his. I occasionally
    help him s...

    Latest update...I now have a shiny Blichmann 10 gal pot ready for all grain and a 50' immersion
    wort chiller made by yours truly and I think it turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. I
    have all...

    Well, now I'm back to debating the wort chiller, DIY or buy? Looks like 50' chillers cost
    around $100 but you can get 50' of copper for $45 plus the fittings (maybe $10 total) or buy a
    25' around $60-...

    This is a tuffy. Your buying tools for the evolution of a brewer; where in his journey is he
    and what tools will help him? Blichmann is good stuff, but cost a lot. 10gal will work for up
    to 6 gallon b...

    Do a test with the 50' coil before you buy it (if they let you or don't stop you). See how
    easy/hard it is to bend compared with the 20' coil. The stuff at the Lowe's I got mine from had
    different wal...

    I would get the 50'. I would make a chiller with at least 30-35 of it, then use the remaining
    to make a small coil for a "pre-chiller". If you have hot tap water during the summer, you
    would put the p...

    OK, here's my quick update. I am getting my blichmann this afternoon and I did get the
    stainless ball valve, etc from my LHBS and i went to Lowes to pick up parts for a wort chiller
    but it seems as if...
