Be patient if you have a friend that owes you favors. He might be able to replace the relay. If you have it plugged into an extension cord you might not be getting enough power.

That pdf bogs my browser down so I didn't look too much. Water doesn't look too bad. My advice is always the same though. Read the primer and then use one of the many water/grist estimators and...

Release the pressure on the keg every so often and just let it sit warm. Being a tad on the sweet side shouldn't make it taste all that bad so I expect you need to age it regardless.

mabrungard essentially nailed the advice thing in the first response. There wasn't a whole lot to follow up on really. The jokes were simply affirmation.

This look like a good candidate for natural gas conversion?

Just looking at the burners, has anyone converted something similar? I've seen this style burner on other products. I just don't know if anyone has been able to convert them to NG.

I rack to a bottling bucket after cold crashing. Cold liquid holds gases better than warm ones yet I've had no oxidation problems.

Personally, I'd just focus on the mash and get that right. The top off water never hits the grain and there probably isn't that much of it anyhow.

To can half pints I would probably have to throw in some DMS/sugar to get the gravity high enough. Still, pints would be a big savings in time and space over quarts.

Condensed Canned Stater Wort? Anyone doing this?

Seems like a good idea. Put up pints that can be diluted with boiled water when you do a starter. Then you double (or more) your productivity when you brew up and can a batch of starter wort.
