  • 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.

    Sorry for posting too many times. iOS app wasn't working right.I ended up buying the built
    controller. As I hadn't built a brew controller yet I didn't want to mess up such an expensive
    controller. No...

    Scuffed the surfaces really well used plenty of flux and a higher silver content solder (for
    strength). The 3/8 pipe sticks through the inside of the cap about 1/2in. I've picked the unit
    up by the ne...

    Took a 3/4in copper cap and drilled 3 holes in it big enough for the 3/8 to fit then soldered
    them in and a piece of 3/4 pipe

    Are you planning to cane prune or spur prune? If you are doing spurs you will be starting to
    form the main arms of the vines, or you could cut the vines back to the main stems and form
    arms from the m...

    I don't see anyway to kill the power to the element in the event of an SSR failure. The most
    common failure mode for SSR's is "closed," so if your SSR fails, your element will be stuck
    on.Brew on :mug...
