Laziness leads to bad beer

I recently kegged my IPA (made with mostly Citra hops w/Magnum for bittering) and I neglected to take a gravity reading. Today, after a week in the keg, I tried a sample and it was awful. I have...

I guess that I am confused. Just because there is "stuff" in your chiller, that doesn't equate to bacteria. There is "stuff" in your wort. Chemicals/heat kill bacteria. I always run boiling wort...

You will want to place your brewmometer below the 5 gallon mark on HLT or lower if possible. Also, I would put a sight glass on boil kettle. It really helps to know when you have hit your preboil...

I use a Johnson Controls temp controller to run my mash tun pump and then I use it to control fermentation temps. I keep it busy and it is well worth the money.

One pump and two tiers. I love my set up. Two pumps=twice the headache. You can put your HLT higher or your MLT (my set up) and use gravity (free and always works). $.02

Best false bottom for Bayou Classic 62 quart pot?

I am upgrading from my igloo with braid to a stainless mash tun with a false bottom. Has anyone else put a false bottom in the Bayou Classic 62 quart pot and which one would you recommend?

Tasted this today. Definitely not the same. I do not taste the "coffee" like I do in the original. Tastes more like a porter than a stout. Not a good substitute in my book.

Here's my version of a two-tiered, single pump brewery. I pump up from HLT and let gravity drain from MLT to boil kettle. Easy and cheap. (Well cheap is really relative around here)
