    Looks good for small test batches. I would try it!

    I wanted my rig to be mobile since we can brew outdoors all year in Nor Cal so this is what I
    cobbled together. 193362193363The support is a shelf bracket U bolted to a stove leg that is

    Morebeer has HUGE grain bags (29x29) for $5.50. There is a thread discussing them under
    equipment and sanitization. I use one in a 15 gal kettle and it fits perfectly. Plenty strong
    for any 5 gal batc...

    Disposable oxygen canisters from Lowes or HD go for around $7. I use a regulator from Williams
    (best price I've found) and a SS stone from my LHBS. No HEPA filter and no problem with
    infection provide...

    Go for the chiller. Much easier than preparing an ice bath and then lifting a hot, heavy kettle
    and moving it without sloshing. I did it that way for a while but only with 2.5 gal BIAB
    batches. My imm...

    Thanks for all the great info. I'll be going with the 15 gal Concord and some weldless fittings
    from Brew Hardware. After that a larger chiller... then maybe a pump... and a conical.

    I'm getting ready to make this exact decision. What is the shipping time like on the Concord
    kettles? I know Amazon can get a BC to me in a couple of days but that is probably not worth an
    extra $15 u...

    There's a new club that has been meeting at the Brewmeister in Roseville. Placer Ultimate

    I too am eagerly awaiting the first brew report! This design has so much potential. All in one
    BIAB with a small footprint. It looks like something that could be fabricated for a reasonable
    price. The...

  • Posted in thread: Best Grain Mill?? on 07-05-2012 at 05:58 PM
    I opted for the Crankenstein 2s on sale at Brewmasters Warehouse. Built a bucket top and hopper
    combo for under $10. Factory gap setting is .045 and I find that double milling works best for
    my small ...
