I used a 25' 3/8 copper IC and had pretty poor performance, I upgraded to 50' and the chilling capacity improved. The biggest improvement was when I started whirlpooling at the end with a pump. I can...

I've brewed 10 gallons of Pale Ale, a pumpkin ale, and a 5 gallon RIS that all were in the ~25# range. I wasn't able to mash as thin as I usually like but it's worked well for me. I was about an...

If you're doing batch sparging I would leave it slightly tipped while you drain the wort, when the main flow is done I would stop.

I'll throw in another vote for the ice-cube cooler. I holds one carboy or ale pail and by swapping out re-freezable ice packs once or twice a day it can easily maintain a temp in the low 60's. I also...

1/2 inch is good, that's what I'm using. Any smaller and I imagine it could get clogged, I can't think of a reason why you'd want it bigger unless yours mash tun was a lot bigger.

In my experience after 10 days or so you'll start to run the risk of developing vegetal flavors (grass clippings anyone?). I know I've read that some people on HBT leave the hops in the keg while...

I usually dry hop by throwing the hop pellets in the keg, leave it at room temp for about 5 days. Then I cold crash and transfer to a second keg to get it off the hops. This has worked really well...

I didn't get it that "keg shell" meant empty keg when I first read it, so I guess it depends if you can use an empty keg for a boil kettle or hlt.
