    No it is not practical and no you should not use it. The main reasons would be 1) Heat loss and
    2) Grain bed would be to thin. Even if you insulate and keep the heat where you want you still

    Well right now (small) breweries can sell bottles/cans in their tasting rooms but can not fill
    a 64 oz. growler. 32 oz. and one gallon growlers can be filled. I've been to breweries in quite
    a few sta...

    I have a feeling the heavy taste you talk about comes from the .75 Sorachi Ace at 60. Thats
    going to over power a saison in my opinion. I see it as only 28.5 IBU's in your recipe but
    comes out to over...

    I use a copper manifold and fly sparge. I have never had a stuck sparge, do not use rice hulls
    and make a White IPA that is %40 wheat. If your fly sparging then I would say slow down the

    2lbs of crystal seem soooo much, 1.5 still seems too much.I,for what it may be worth,wouldn't
    use more than 1lb. Past experience.I always thought so to but while talking to the head brewer
    of a fast g...
