If you go with a pump and a decent controller/sensor you will be able to keep your mash temperature pretty close to set-point. Just be sure to have an adjustment method (hand valve) in your mash...

Dos Equis Dark is one of my favorite beers when it's on tap, not so much when it's bottled. I think Revvy's recipe will be the first lager I try once I get set up to brew that way. I won't change...

Great looking setup!

First off, the boil thing is only a glorified timer; not really needed at all. It keeps track of what should happen and what has happened, but does nothing else. I have incorporated voice as well as...
