    Went with an abstract hop cone design, hope you all like it. I also didn't use any oils and
    just left the natural wood color. Mine looks terrible compared to some of the other ones
    already posted up h...

    I just waxed two cases of bottles for Christmas gifts. This is super easy, and really pretty
    fun to do. The full blog post gives the "how to" and includes photos.Just checked out the blog
    post. The wa...

    Do you have any stuck mash after placing the seal? I'm using a 5 gallon Rubbermaid cooler with
    9" false bottom, and I had stuck mash. The culprit is the bottom of the cooler is not flat but
    dome, so i...

    Any update?Went with the thermoplastic and have yet to notice any off flavors in my brews.

    Yeah, give it a try. The only drawback is that it gets pretty humid in there during hot
    fermentations. But I just wipe it down and air it out afterward. For regular fermentations in
    the 60s it doesn't...

    Yep. It's one of those heavy duty growlers with the ceramic top; tall enough to hold the
    aquarium heater. It's filled water and simply radiates heat. I can get the fridge into the 80s
    for saisons. It ...

    I use an aquarium heater in a growler as my heat source. Works great. I was sketched out by
    some of the other options as well.Interesting. Just to make sure I'm understanding correctly,
    you have the a...

    Personally, I think you are being overcautious. Little chance of a heating device burning down
    the house, especially if it is inside of a refrigerator. Fires needs alot of oxygen, not much
    of that ins...

    Double post, sorry

    I have been using the cooler/aquarium heater trick for a few years now. It works great. I do
    not put it in a fridge but just set it in the basement. The heater I am using hold temps to
    within a degree...
