I wanted one with a cord so that I could leave it in my kettle, MLT, or HLT to monitor temps from the outside. The problem was that the corded ones kept dying on me. Somewhere on here, someone...

It's not arguing semantics. You're factually incorrect. A cream ale doesn't magically become a cream lager when lagered if an ale yeast is used. The argument could be made that a mixed style is made...

By definition an ale or lager is defined by the yeast used, not the temperature that it is fermented at.

What about kolsch? Or steam beer?

Thanks. I'm boiling about 2-2.5 gallons on my current very wide kettle. Efficiency would go down slightly with 1.5 gallons... But I'd be more average in my boil off rates this way!

I think I will...

First of all, if you fill a 15 gallon kettle with 5 gallons of liquid, it'll come up to 1/3 the kettle height (assuming straight walls), not 1/4. :D

Are you doing all grain or extract?

Thanks for posting this. Do you wrap your pot with any insulation?

Different strokes for different folks. The reason there are so many IPAs is because the demand for IPA is pretty big. This means that a lot of people do like IPAs.

I use CPVC for my sparge arm. When I was building mine, I read not to use PVC; to use CPVC instead. For the very modest price difference, there's no reason not to use CPVC.

I do five gallon batches. I currently use a 15 gallon aluminum pot. But, I'd be willing to drop down to 10ish gallon pot if it is a smaller diameter, since boiloff won't be so great.

You either didn't cap some of them correctly or you didn't stir the priming sugar well enough. I can't see any other possibilities here being likely.

I started off with efficiencies in the 50% range. Fixing my crush was the MAJOR fix, but going from batch to fly sparging helped as well. I now average 80-85% brewhouse efficiency, and over 90% mash...
