  • I had been wanting to try home brewing for quite some time but never delved into it. February of 2013 I finally bit the bullet and it bit me back. I started big right away in all grain and haven't turned back.

    The problem you'll run into is that there has to be a temperature difference to cause the wort
    in the boil kettle to boil. If you aren't putting the water through the coil in the boil kettle

    a couple of really good handfuls should suffice. You want the grains to look like they all had
