  • Current brewing gear is a 10 gallon round cooler/mash tun, 8 gallon kettle, and a propane burner. I did BIAB for a while, and now I've repurposed the bag I used for that as a hop bag. Of course, I frequently forget to use the bag and end up with lots of loose hops in my kettle that also get into the fermenter. Oh well, every once in a while I remember to use it.

    Here I was hoping that it was:"Science has created clean tasting, well floccing lager yeast
    that works at 20C (72F)"Hopes and dreams, always shattered.Yes! That would be awesome.

    So, it is possible that in the future, we might have access to yeasts that require low
    temperature fermentation (i.e. special equipment) that give the same flavors we get from simple
    ale room-temperat...

    930 different beers. AND they are all from right here in Michigan.Should be awesome.

    Brewing extract is not inferior brewing. It is just less controlled brewing. Brewing all grain
    won't make you a better brewer if you lack the capabilities to manage fermentations properly.
