Loved this episode, I love the super borderline obsessive compulsive knowledge about
homebrewing Dawson brings to the table. I really felt inspired to brew one soon. I've not had

Stick can be very beautiful too, allot of folks think stick just looks ugly because the process
can be very difficult to learn. But here is a stick weld I did, this is 7018.

Stick welder wouldn't be a bad choice if your just trying to weld on the cheap. Only problem I
see is it would be difficult to learn on thin material like tubing you would use for a brew
stand (I used...

I was shooting for 158.Waaaay too high, I mashed at 149. DIPA are typically finished low to dry

You wouldn't survive boiling even a fair amount of DME in a flask without a volcano. A 2L flask
barely holds down a 1500 ml starter worth of DME - in fact, I've taken to boiling my starters
