    My 2 cents worth on this... I just kegged (last week) 2 5 gallon kegs from my conical. Since
    it's a big beer well over 6.5% ABV I added fresh yeast to both as the residual yeast is pretty
    well spent. ...

    My 2 cents worth... I've been using PBW in my brewpot and kegs for about a year now (but home

    the wort/beer...

    Any thoughts/advice on this... I will soon be upgrading to a 14.5 gallon conical fermenter. I
    will brew a 6 gallon 1.106 OG batch one day, pitch to the fermenter with a healthy starter,
    then brew anot...

    I brew in 2.5 gallon batches. How many watts electric burner (not element) do I need to boil 3
    gallons of water/wort? I don't mind waiting 1 hour to start boil, but just need a definite
