Agree 100%. My Rubbermaid cooler usually doesn't even drop 1 degree over a 60 minute mash. Unless you really, really want one, you don't need it. Spend the money on something else!

I love Torpedo. I love Celbration. And, I love Flipside! I think they're all great beers. Flipside to me, is more of a west coast style American Amber ale. Hoppy, dry and malty.

I always use a blow off tube the first few days, just in case. Then I change to an airlock. Once you've had a blow-off, you will not want another one!

You can save $5 and make beer or you can spend an extra $5 and make the beer you wanted to make. If I were wanting to make a Belgian Strong, I would use the correct yeast.
