I started using the paint-mixer/cordless drill approach to stirring (as opposed to hand stirring) and my cooling times went down dramatically. Easily 50% decrease in time.

I think run time is a huge "pro" for the chest freezer...seems like the insulation is so much better...

I swear we can hear the Vissani from two rooms away, and the buzz is very annoying.

Thoughts on a QUIET Fridge/Freezer?

We have a small house, and the only place I can really fit a kegerator is in the room right next to our bedroom. Now, beer next to a bedroom may seem like a bi-winning situation, but it's not really...

A trick I use for a bubbling auto-siphon is to pour some of whatever you are transferring between the outer and inner tubes of the siphon. It's never failed me.

I also add liquid (starsan) between the two tubes when I have issues with the seal. It's fixed every problem so far.

I just received a pound from fresh hops. Arrived in about 3 days, across the entire country. Impressive!

I have no idea what to do with them now though.

When I went to BIAB, I went to 2.5g batches (from 5g) and I'm very happy with the decision. I get to brew more often, and try a lot of different recipes while I'm still learning. I usually get sick...

I'd get the bayou pot kit with the steamer basket included, in case you want to switch to a BIAB setup at some later point. Small premium if you buy the pot+basket, but can be a bigger ticket if you...

Went to BIAB all-grain after 4 extracts, and the only thing that really changed was my brew day got 45 minutes longer. BIAB is an amazing way to get 95% of the flexibility of an MLT all-grain setup,...

Be aware if you buy the barbed stone, it's a 1/4" fitting, and the tubing coming off the oxygen tank is 3/16". The reduction barb is impossible to find outside of a kit. I ended up buying 2 brass...

I have a 7.5g pot and I have done a 4g batch before. It was tight, but the only part where it's close is the mashing, before you boil. Once you remove the grains, you get a ton of headspace back...

That wasnt a complete answer. Biab is a brewing process that boils (ha!) down the mashing process to as little as one step, done in the brew kettle.

The stone will run you about 20, tubing another 5-8, filter 5-10, plus the pump. You also need a tricky reduction fitting if you use a s/s stone, that ran me 7 in brass fitting workaround.

I've read people getting north of 80% efficiency without a sparge on BIAB. A fine grain crush seems to make a much bigger difference than anything else you can do.

IR is convenient, but you probably want to know more than just the surface temp. I ended up buying a digital thermocouple off ebay, after a series of useless thermometers.

You probably need high-temp silicon tubing because of the input temp on the wort. High temp silicon probably approaches 3/8" copper tubing on a price/ft basis.
