I use an old rectangular cooler with a CPVC manifold that is slotted on the bottom. I would get
between 70-80% efficiency depending on who crushed my grains. Last summer I bought a Barley

freeze wort in single use size containers.to use:take out, defrost, boil 10 mi and voila-
basically free starter wort (I take second runnings instead of adding extra grains).Good idea,
then the wort w...

Are you just storing them in the fridge?I am, that's why I didn't go too crazy and collect
several gallons. I was hoping for around two gallons which should make around four 2L starters,

That's a good idea. Not too entirely uncommon. For me growing 100 billion cells from DME is

That's what I figured, I've got it carbing in the keg now, but I don't hold out much hope for

A few weeks ago I set out to brew another batch of Edworts Bee Cave Kolsch, since the first 10
gallons I made disappeared so quickly. Ordered my stuff from Midwest but couldn't find the
