I haven't dried any sanitized items. As long as you're using food grade, no-rinse sanitizer, I can't imagine why it would need to dry.

Mine actually goes in for the whole boil. I found that to be easier than dealing with trying to move a very hot hop spider out of the way toward the end of the boil, plus my boil doesn't get...

Coolers are popular for mash tuns because they hold the temperature well. A process called brew in a bag allows you to do everything in your boil kettle, so read up on that.

You may want to...

I've never disassembled. I bought two of mine from kegconnection.com and they recommend against disassembly. I've heard that the warranty claim is a rumor, but I can't say for sure.

I use Brewer's Friend. I like it, particularly since I'm using my tablet on brew day, not my computer. I know that Beersmith has a mobile app, but at the time I was deciding, the mobile app was...

As far as I can tell, the best bet with these (I have 3) is build or buy a keg washer and simply don't disassemble unless there is a problem.

Hard to say. I'm guessing the specialty grain was in for the boil? It should be interesting to see what you get as an end result.

In any case, you will make beer.

One of these days I'd love to get a nice brewing system. I think if I had the opportunity today, I would probably order a Morebeer system. I'd go for the digital setup...your temperatures will be...

You should check out morebeer's brew sculptures as well. It sounds as if a lot of major breweries are using either the Brew Magic or the morebeer systems as their test batch systems, so that has...

I can't say with any certainty as I'm not a chemist, but the sanitizers that you can purchase at a homebrew shop should be food safe. Since some amount of it is going to end up in my beer, I'm much...

It won't be a kolsch without pilsner malt making up pretty much the entire grain bill. I'd consider ordering pilsner online if it's not available at your LHBS. Out of the listed hop varieties, I'd...

I've found that I prefer hefeweizen fermented on the cooler side. My last one used WLP380 at 64 degrees and I was really pleased. I'd suggest keeping notes on what you did and what you thought of...

Blichmann kettles are completely worth the cost in my opinion. Mine has served me well as a boil kettle. The calibrated sight glass is really useful. No need to make and use a dip stick. The...

The hydrometer is the tool for FG in my opinion. Don't you want to drink a sample of your beer before bottling/kegging?

My chest freezer isn't frost-free. I get a bit of condensation on the floor of the freezer when fermenting at lager temps, but nothing a paper towel can't take care of.

I actually haven't tried growing my own hops, so I can't really provide a whole lot of useful information. I'm not a huge hop head, so growing my own isn't necessarily that beneficial to me.
