    Here are the dimensions I am going with, after rereading the first part of the thread, these
    are probably quite close, as they've been worked to maximize material. I also have some space
    constraints I...

    Just went to RONA yesterday and picked up the lumber to start my build. I've been watching this
    thread since the start, and have been dreaming of the day I could build my own. Finally making
    it happen...

    Here's the label I've made for a smoked imperial stout, I am wax dipping them with black bottle

    I brewed a slight variation of this last night. I added 2 cans of pumpkin that was previously
    roasted with brown sugar and pie spice. I also added the dark grains at vorlauf, as I do with
    all of my st...

    I just thought I'd post this, as it may prevent others from letting the smoke out of their
    element connectors / wiring.When I built my brewery, I tinned (soldered them to keep the
    strands all together...

    Brewed this a few weeks ago and split the batch. Fermented half with WLP029, and the other with
    WLP080. Decided to bottle them for the true German feel, but calculated my priming sugar based
    on 10 gal...

    that more fermenter space is in order. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I used one ounce of Tettnanger in the mash, none in the boil. Checked it last night - pH 4.3
    and 1.020 down from pH 6.0 and 1.031 original. Pitched Sunday night. It was still chugging away
    this mornin...

    I've just started 2 6 gallon batches of Berliner Weisse’s. I made 12 gallons of 1.031 OG wort
    and split it into 2 carboys. In one I pitched Wyeast 3191 Berliner Blend, and in the other
    Wyeast 5335. Th...
