So I'm looking to brew a kiwit. Most recipes call for a wit yeast, but I want to brew soon and that is not an option. Well it is, but I'm up for a challenge. The two belgian strains I do have are...

Anybody use these yet? Trying to decide on a faucet. Looks nice, but wanted to see what others thought. Doesn't give a lot of detail. Curious if the restrictor plate is removable.

I too had a problem with the thumb screws. Long story short, contact Fred and ask him to send you some Hex bolts. Once I swapped them out I haven't had a problem since. It's really a great mill...

Ben,

First, thanks for the inspiration.

Regarding cutting the lip of the kettle: I did not cut the whole lip, maybe just half on a 90 degree angle. Because it fits so tight in the cooler, I...

DPB,

I did trim the top lip of the kettle so that I could keep the threads to screw on the lid. A little more work but turned out pretty clean. After a few batches, some of the seam cracked a...

OEHokie,

Give it a try before you cut or bend your dip tubes. I've been fermenting in cornys for a while now, and have not modified anything (except removing the popit when hooking up a blow off...

Thanks Walker,

I'll have to see if that is going to work in my cooler. I'm sure it will, just have to decide if I want to drill another hole in it. Nice price though.

I use an EHLT and propane for my kettle. I highly recommend an EHLT. Can't beat just programming a temp and walking away to do something else. I am also in no rush to complete the all electric...

I actually use (2) love controllers. One is functional (it actually controls the heat on the HLT) and the second one on the mash tun is strictly for temp read-outs. At the end of the boil, I take...
