I have the CK and it works perfectly. The quality is good and there is nothing about it that I
could complain about. I really don't find it a chore to pause grinding to refill the hopper. I
use a dril...
Posted in thread: How do YOU keep your cooler mash-tun as close to temp as possible? on 01-02-2014 at 03:52 PM
I use an old down jacket - my home depot 10g cooler holds 1F for 2 hours even when it is below

I used to do that also, but eventually realized a MLT is nice. I would advise to have separate

This week I tried racking from the secondary fermentor to the keg via the auto siphon and
liquid in post. Just run a little CO2 into the tank to cover the bottom, then start filling
from the bottom up...

This keg I tried cold crashing then pouring off the first pint or so, and that fixed the
clogging of the 5 micron. The beer moved through in about 10 minutes at 5# with no foaming or
other issues. I p...

Good luck with the beer... I hope it doesn't taste like cigarettes and pizza :)
