  • 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.

    boil time additions. Lost all the pictures of unpacking the kit and of brew day, when my phone
    cratered. Use...

    into secondary.The partigyle black lager has turned out excellent. It was by far the most

    We have 30-40 ladies coming over for the baby shower Saturday, for which I am cooking and
    providing the libations. Smoking a 10lb pork butt for them. I was brewing Sunday until my
    step-mothers cousin ...

    Awesome build! And I agree, it is curious that you built this with a Brew Boss in hand. Is this
    the system that was giving you the recirculation issues? Notice any performance difference
    between the f...

    We live 4 blocks from the tracks, and my office is half a block from the tracks in a small

    What does everyone recommend for a chiller with the Brew Boss. I've been researching all the
    different options. I was thinking that a whirlpool immersion chiller would be good.I've been
    using the Jade...

    I'm surprised that including chalk and baking soda additions would work for a Pils grist. I do
    not recommend using those additions. In fact, the mash should have required a bit of acid to
    help drop th...
