  • Been brewing a 3 years, my wife bought me a Mr. Beer for Christmas. I did a few 2.5gal extract kits on my electric stove top. I then dug out and cleaned my old turkey fryer, and did several 5 gal extract batches. I got tired of messing with bottles and bought kegging equipment, started with two kegs now have 8. I started out using an old fridge I had laying around, now it has developed into a chest freezer a stand up freezer. Then I built a Igloo cooler mash tun bought a bigger kettle and dove into all grain. I acquired a side by side fridge/freezer and made that my temp controlled fermentation chamber. I got tired of the beer being so so and began building proper water profiles. Then I began building a single tier brew stand and bought 3 sanke kegs and a pump. I finished it and was able to brew my last beer of the year on it Dec 31st. In my first year of brewing I brewed 110gal of beer, 5 gal Apfelwine, 5gal SkeeterPee, 6 gal of Merlot. Now I have moved into electric brewing using a BrewBoss BIAB system and 10g batches.

    I followed this recipe It's at 1.003 now, started at 1.032. Its a 10g batch in two fermenters
    guess I could just try it on one to see the difference.

    I hate not having TC. I need to email Darin and see what I can do to upgrade. His original
    system came with weldless fittings.Agreed, as soon as funds permit I'm having TC fittings
    welded on.

    What size pots are you guys using? What are the dimensions for the Wilser bag? I had been
    squeamish about having a bag in because I figured it would end up touching the element and
    melting/burning up....
