    Thank you all for the input. I appreciate the information.I understand the idea of spending the
    extra loot, up front, for the extra volume, instead of replacing everything down the road. I,
    personally...

    I'm a BIAB brewer who is looking to move up to all grain brewing. my current "set up" is a
    patio/turkey fryer burner and a 10 gal NB tallboy kettle with a mesh bag and digital probe
    thermometer. This ...

    problem seems to have righted itself. I was getting off readings when the probe was lying
    against the side or bottom of the freezer. after putting the carboy in and attaching the probe
    to it, instead ...

    I have a Johnson Control A419 hooked to a chest freezer.I've done trial runs at different
    temperatures and it has worked great. Now, today, when I finally try to put it to use for
    brewing, it is not c...

    @running weird - how's it going, State Line? Waynesboro, here.Welcome, Caleb!

  • Posted in thread: berries in the kettle... big mistake? on 07-26-2013 at 03:38 PM
    I've been freezing a few here and there, little by little throughout the growing season, until
    I had a pound. we probably pick close to a quart a day, when they're at their peak but I'm
    usually lucky ...

    yeah, the gravity came in higher than I'd expected. I am guessing somewhere around 8%, when
    it's all said and done. Is there such a thing as "Imperial Saison"? haha...I'm still fairly new
    to brewing b...

  • Posted in thread: Sierra Nevada Hoptimum... how good is it? on 07-26-2013 at 12:57 PM
    I think my thing with Summerfest is that I've been so focused on IPAs over the last few years,
    and Imperial Stouts, in the late fall/winter, that I've gotten used to very assertive flavors
    in beer and...

  • Posted in thread: berries in the kettle... big mistake? on 07-26-2013 at 12:46 PM
    Thank you very much for the input. Ideally, I would rack onto the raspberries in the secondary
    and then transfer to a tertiary... but, I only have one 3 gal carboy and it's a little hard for
    me to jus...

    I'm not a big "seasonal" guy, but I'm a big fan of SN's seasonals. Summerfest is good but I
    wouldn't go out of my way to get it. Tumbler, Celebration, and Ruthless Rye, however, are
    outstanding. I'm l...
