  • Rockin the Rubbermaid mash tun and 15 gal Bayou Classic turkey fryer for a brew kettle. I'm pretty new to the hobby, but I'm addicted. I've probably got almost 10 batches under my belt and I hope to be able to brew at least 100 gal this year. I'm sitting at 25 now so I think it's pretty attainable!

    I made an opener very similar to this one a while ago. It works really well.

    I can see the you posted here, but have the same trouble with the linked post.

    This probably isn't helpful, but I miss my gravities for just about every beer I make. I
    usually just shrug my shoulders and say "F it". It's still beer...

    I had a bunch of estery beer this year. I lived in the middle of the Mojave (29 Palms, CA) and
    I could not for the life of me control fermentation temperatures well enough to keep my summer
    beers from...

    I've used JBWeld for stuff like this. It says on their site that it is non toxic after it
    dries. There is a thread somewhere around here but the app search function is garbage.

    I bit. I needed another carboy anyway and it's always good to have an extra hydrometer or 3.
    Not to mention that I was just thinking of trying out a wine kit. I've never made one, but I
    guess I will b...

    That's not a bad idea. Ill try to remember to keep some extra water on hand so I can too off
    prior to emptying the BK.

    I have a pretty wide kettle. I've just never had such a high rate of loss. This was an all
    grain batch. All that Pilsner was the whole reason a kept my boil going so strong.

    I've considered taking a look at this problem. Boil off per hour as a function of volume,
    surface area, gravity, humidity, and altitude shouldn't be that difficult to solve. At some
    point, maybe I'll ...
