  • Been brewing a year thus far, 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.

    I have brewed it a number of times, the best way thus far is the original recipe from BYO

    It's very easy to add a weldless spigot to your kettle if you determine you would like one down
    the road. Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

    Boil overs aren't fun to clean up, and can happen real fast. Make sure valves are closed before
    filling with liquids. Hot water burning your foot isn't fun, nor is cleaning up sticky wort.
