I'm on board with the pre-heat method. I usually overshoot the temp to 170-172 and get about 2 gallons of water from the HLT tank into my 12 gallons Coleman rectangular cooler. I've had at the...

I know this isn't the correct way to make a Gose, but I used acidulated malt the last 15 minutes of the mash and it turned out great. It reduced the workload a great deal. I believe I got it out of...

What psi do you serve at? I serve at 9-10 and get a decent pour. It's not a rocket engine shooting out, but it fills a pint faster than 45 seconds.

I've never dedicated the time to fly sparge. But for batch sparging, I get great results from 5 or 10 gallon batches, consistently.

Try it once and see if you like it. If it's not for you, go...

I use pint glasses for everything. All my other glassware is upstairs and I usually just grab a pint glass from near the fridge because they are easily accessible.

that's federal. The states have the option to make it more strict, but can't make it more lenient.

I'm taking next weekend off. I hope the weather holds until the week after. The only bad part about sub-50 weather is the cleaning afterwards.
