    ABOUT ME

  • Spacecoast FL
  • Camping,kayaking,fishing,being outdoors.
  • Back when I was in college, I saw an ad for a home brew kit. Didn't have the time or money back then, but kept the ad. Years later I was cleaning out a box of college keepsakes and found the ad, called for a catalog and bought my first set up...2- 5 gal fermenters ( large diameter with no handles to speak of, merely recessed finger grooves), some cans of wort syrup, bags of corn sugar, a capper and racking equipment.

    Despite my lack of knowledge, I brewed some tasty stuff back then.

    Today I'm into all grain brewing and enjoy formulating my own recipes. An ice fed fermentation chamber for temperature control works even in the 95 degree room I use for fermentation. Got tired of cleanning bottles so use a compact fridge now for a 1 corny set up, looking for a deal on a chests freezer to put in the workshed so I can have a variety on tap at any time. Currently using a propane turkey fryer set up for brewing with a 5 gal round cooler for a mash tun.

    The last recipe I crafted was
  • a Columbus IPA, a Belgian Tripel, and another recipe I'm working on with some fresh ginger...something light enough to consider a session or lawnmower brew. When the temps cool down I'll try my hand at a barley wine.

    I think the high heat on the back patio plus the freezer door not properly sealing is part of
    the problem. It has been running in the 90s. I vaced the coolant lines under the unit which
    were pretty di...

    The fridge is a side by side and the freezer door is messed up so it does not close tightly,
    which is why it was taken offline and destined for the scrapyard till I decided to use it for
    fermentation....

    I converted an old fridge into a fermentation chamber with the help of an inkbird temp
    controller. Dialed the fermentation temp to 67 and let the batch sit for 3 weeks. Great stable
    temps even with th...

    I upgraded from a corona mill to a Millers Mill and love it. Only did one crush so far, but 14
    lbs was an easy hand crank with little noise and effort.

    Thanks, guess I'll have to pickup a feeler gauge. Do you recall what # setting gives you that
    gap?
