I'm not planning on building a collar. My eventual plan is to build a lid with a coffin box on top to mount the taps to. The lines will run through a hole in the top of the lid. Something similar...

Have you tried the Hopfenweisse collaboration between Schneider and Brooklyn? It's pretty much a cross between a traditional Bavarian hefe and American IPA, and it's awesome. If I were going to...

I heat my strike water above the desired temperature, usually somewhere in the 170s. Then I dump it all in the cooler and close the lid. As it cools to the proper strike temp, it's preheating the...

Sounds awesome. Keep us updated, seems like something I'd be interested in trying someday down the road. I've heard of others having success with pumpkin saisons also, and I love anything Belgian.

This is how I rigged up my cooler mash tun. The stainless steel fenders were a little pricey, but worth the added cost for the stability, and they should last forever. Have fun with your first brew.

I waited to add the second half of the DME in the last 15 minutes. Color still came out darker than I'd like. I guess that's common with extract brewing, especially partial volume. But other than...

I use Better Bottles to ferment and judging by that picture, I'd say you're right around 5 gallons there, maybe a tad under. When you're done with the bottle and have it cleaned out, fill it with...

I'm not going to be making a starter so I figured it's best to go with 2 packs. Mr. Malty suggests 205 billion cells for 1.056 OG, and each pack has 100 billion - so 2 packs should do it. I'll be...
