I've been thinking about 2.5/3 gallon brewing too. My reasons are pretty much the same as everyone else. The important ones to me are being able to rotate batches to work on improving my brewing, so...

I had thought of doing some plumbing but that may be a future plan. The faucet end has buttons on so I think a "condom" won't work. I like the pond pump idea. Plus it will allow me to use a bucket of...

I just moved into a new apartment. The kitchen faucet is a Kohler pull-down faucet. It's got buttons right on the nozzle for stopping water and for changing to spray. You cannot screw an immersion...

I'm planning on making my first Mr. Beer this Sunday. I have some DME, if I decide to substitute DME for Booster do I just use the same amount by weight?

It uses natural carbonation from the priming sugar you added. The pouch is used to keep out air as you pour the beer by expanding and filling the empty space.

Top Tip - Have enough bottles clean and ready!

I went to bottle 5 1/2 gal. of bitter tonight. I cleaned 36 12 oz. bottles and 6 22 oz. bottle. I feel dumb. The worst part is the bitter is tasting good so far. I wasted a good 6 pack or 2.

Doh!

When I first read this thread I thought, what are these people talking about just be careful. Sure enough, I over tightened the next time I brewed! Hopefully I can save the one good cap.

It's a vinyl floor. I am only renting and hopefully will find a place to buy this year so I don't want to invest in it.

It sounds like I'll stick with bleach because acetone is horrible!

Oxyclean for Floor Cleaning

I could only find Munich extract as a LME, not DME. So that won't last.

My LHBS will crush for free. They also want you to weigh and bag your own grains. So I bag by batch and they are more than happy to crush away.

Would I need to do a thicker steep? So it would be more like a mash? I'm trying to avoid the complexity of a mash, but if it is only a matter of steeping lower and thicker then I'm sure I can deal.
