Looks good! (aka UGLY). I use the bucket-in-bucket setup myself, and it can't be beat. My old Craftsman 1/2" drill goes through a grain bill in about 5 minutes, and when I mash, I hit my numbers...

That article is over three years old. I would expect to have seen this system locally* by now, but I haven't.

*Central IL, and we have Schnuck's locally, which is / was evidently an outlet.

C'mon, everyone knows that Jif "Skippy" Washington invented peanut butter. I read it on the Internet, so it must be true.

I bought a 30 qt. pot when I started brewing, brewed extract batches in it for 18 months, then switched to AG. I have no problems doing a full 6.5 gal. boil in a 7.5 gal. pot. The secret is simple:...

The prices of Rogue hereabouts (Central IL) have gone up to that of Dogfish Head. I like Rogue's products, but not that much. Since DH moved back into our area, I've treated myself to a six of Indian...
