    I got quick delivery on my Barley Crusher. Money well spent as far as I'm concerned. I love it!
    I routinely get about 85% efficiency using the factory setting.Good luck with yours!Cheers,Ken

    I also use bleach to clean my fermentation bucket, but it doesn't competely remove the smell of

    I use the 6 gal size Better Bottle. Much lighter than glass and won't shatter if you drop it

    almost all the h...

    I agree with beer4breakfast. My boil kettle has two 1/2 in couplers welded in. One is for a 1/2
    in SS ball valve. I use a pickup tube and false bottom on the inside of this coupler. I only
    use leaf ho...

    This is why I do not like to ferment in buckets - you can't actually see what's going on in
    there. I have had three different batches that did not pass bubbles through the airlock as it
    was fermenting...
