Yeah I would also definitely cold crash with a starter that big. I'd probably crash it in the frig for a few days actually. I like to decant off as much of the starter beer as possible before...

I think the reason people decant their starters is to avoid having the potentially gross starter beer mixed in with the beer they'll be drinking. Could bring some strange/off/bad flavors into the mix...

Looks really cool man. If it were me I wouldn't worry about the distance between brew stand & sink for the purposes of draining the chiller's waste water. It would be a pretty simple/inexpensive...

I agree. Really interesting thread topic, and props to the OP (seriously).

Dude, is that an apple juice jug in that first starter pic? I use one that looks exactly like that. Nice work on the brew day post. More people should do this.

Cheers.

Using a pump to recirculate wort in your kettle (whirlpool) is the easiest, but pumps are somewhat pricey (relative to general brewing equipment). Before I had a pump, I just stirred the wort in my...

I add a back-flip between spins 5 and 6 if I'm looking for a bump in attenuation. You guys are doing this naked right?

I love the math and the idea OP, but as has been stated above - almost 5 days at 30psi seems like a really solid recipe for over-carbonation. I've thought about these exact calculations myself though...

I use a similar element for heating my strike/sparge water. With only 1500W of heating power, it takes quite a while to heat 6 gallons of water to those types of temps - 90min seems reasonable to me,...

Just wanted to post and say that I recently bought a tank from EZRyder. He's great to work with and I received my tank 4 days after I placed my order. Recommended seller.

Seems like 10% crystal/cara would be plenty for head retention. I have a Munich Helles on tap right now with no crystal at all and it has great head retention.

Enjoy the brew. Cheers.

Temp control and water treatment are good ones. I'd also say that, for the beers I enjoy drinking, kegging was a big improvement. Definitely not trying to start the keg/bottle debate with that...
