  • I've been homebrewing since 2009. I've been interested in brewing since 1999, and finally had the money to justify getting in to the hobby. Now I have such a wish list I'll be broke for years to come! :)rnrnAfter three kit/extract beers, I made the jump to all-grain. I quickly upgraded to brewing most of my beers in ten gallon batches, since it doesn't take that much longer until packaging time.rnrnThere are so many things I want to explore with this hobby!

    Hey, Sapp,You can get external temperature controllers that will cycle the power to your
    freezer to maintain a cooler temperature. Johnson and Ranco are two of the most common, just
    because they've be...

    Glad you're getting back into it. Smaller batches could definitely be a great way to go with
    limited space. A lot of homebrew suppliers have small kits that make use of Mr Beer fermenters.
    Good luck!

    I, too, mostly ferment in opaque containers. I try not to use spigots on my fermenters, but
    they're definitely needed on the bottling bucket.Sounds like you're off to a great start,

    The recipe database here on Homebrewtalk is rather extensive. Here's the IPA section: people
    have posted clone recipes for their favorite commercial beers. I'm partial to Bell's

    good and the brewing enjoyable. Have fun!

    You're off to a great start. My first batch wound up finishing about 2 AM as well, and that was
    just because I needed some sleep.Have fun!

    BIAB can be a great way to step into all-grain brewing. I would recommend getting one of the
    large bags from Midwest Supplies or your local homebrew shop. The $7 price tag is worth the
    convenience, in...

    Sounds like you have a great setup to get started. One idea for chilling could be to get a
    large bin that would hold the kettle and figure out the right height to add a drain hole that
    would allow eff...
