  • Been brewing about six years, started with the LHBS kit like everyone else before quickly moving to all grain. Got sick of crawling around on garage floors and messing with coolers and pouring gallons of boiling liquid around in 2009 and built a Brutus-style system and bang out 10 gallon batches. Not brewing as much the past year and a half or so, since am trying (badly) to lose some of the weight I've put on the past couple of years...

    I too would love an answer to this question.I had them price out a 15g kettle with one extra
    weld. The kettle was $270 compared to the standard $240, so seems like $30 a weld. I ended up
    just buying o...

    So I have a pair of 14 gallon SS Brewing BME chronicals. I also have about $800 in gift
    certificates to them, so planning on nabbing their glycol chiller to power the cooling coils.
    However, rather th...

    Filing does indeed suck. As does any hand work on metal. I'm trying to come up with an
    enclosure for my double BrewPi setup, and since housing my dodgy electrical work is an accident
    waiting to happen...

    Kinda. The box was bought then modified, the panel is custom, carved out of a piece of an
    aluminum speed limit sign one of my sons liberated about 20 years ago ;)Cheers!What did you do
    the carving wit...

    Random question of the day - can ye olde sainsmart relays work with DC power as well? Am going
    to use my multiple Brewpis to control two SS Brewtech Chronicals, and their pumps/pads are
    12v.Given the ...

    Yep, I'm planning on adding a header for the encoder and swapping out the p-fet for a
    transistor for ease of soldering. I also have a few other upgrades in mind. I hope to tackle
    that in the next week...

    Nice, extra props for having a coherent color scheme and making the warning more
    interesting.Well, I do it for a living, so if it didn't have a coherent colour scheme I'd
    likely be unemployed. As to t...

    Yeah - the thing about the BrewPi is that it's as cheap as you want it to be, really. Easily
    built from Chinese clone boards, and at this point most people even have a spare PC lying
    around to act as ...
