  • Brewing for 25+ years now. I got into brewing when I was in high school. I've always enjoyed making stuff myself and thought I could make beer as well. Read numerous, well a couple at that time, books about it and mentally prepared myself. Joined the military and didn't have time until a couple years later. Made my first batch with some old ingredients, didn't control fermentation temps and didn't really know what to expect. It was drinkable and I was hooked. Went through most of the equipment that seems everyone does. Made maybe three extract batches when I stepped up to AG. Been making most of my gear until I finally stepped up the Alpha Ruby. Future plans are opening a homebrew store to serve my local market which, surprisingly, has a ton of homebrewers. Eventually I want to start a brewery and incorporate the homebrew shop into that. Never want to give up my past, but also am looking for something to do into retirement.

    So what did you come up with, recipe-wise, for this one? Been thinking of doing one with a
    better taste. And sorry to dig up an old post, but search led me here.

    At a bare minimum you want it attached to the side of the fermenter.This. I put my temp probe
    next to my fermenter and surround with copious amounts of bubble wrap. Has worked fairly well
    thus far.

    I boil the requisite amount of water in my wasserkocher and pour that into my warm flask that
    already has my DME dissolved in a bit of hot water. No problems as of yet. I'd credit the guy
    on reddit wh...

    This rumor does appear to be true. From NikoBrew's Facebook page:...First, why would he even
    want to comment on another business? Very unprofessional. Second, this is one of the myriad

    BTW jddevinn, that's a nice looking brew room you have there. Is it your garage? If so, what
    did you use for the floor? And how many fermenters can you run off of your chiller? I see you
    have a loop r...

    If you decide to go the build route and have any questions let me know. I use a BCS as a
    controller but it can be done much simpler as well.Do you have a build thread, or anything
    written up? I might ...
