  • 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.

    Definitely! Which is part of the reason I wanted to test it. I mash for 60min. But I wanted to
    see if I could get the same rate of conversion from grain crushed at .050 as someone who
    crushes much tig...
