Was perfectly happy with my extract stovetop brews chilled in a sink of ice but now I have mash tuns, 10 Gal kettles, patio burner, three 6.5 gal carboys, recirculating wort chiller, weird bags and jars of stuff like brewing salts and foam control, freakin' stirplate, temperature controlled fermentation chamber, etc....

    day."Great, w...
