Still love it. I've learned how to better use the analog dial to help maintain the mash temp better which was one of my issues I was having. I keep it at about 50% and my mash easily stays within a...

Yeah that's what I'm thinking. I would say about 10% of my hop matter was brown. Some of the cones were entirely brown. It's my 2nd year and I still don't have a good feel for when to harvest. Like...

So what happens if you wind up too wet? This is my second harvest and I picked my Centennials last week. I got 13 oz wet and they've been on a window screen over a box fan in the basement for the...

Definitely check the fittings. If others end up getting this system, save yourself some pain and disassemble the fittings, throw a couple wraps of teflon tape on there, and re-tighten it. I've had...

I recommend marbles plural. I dry hopped with leaf for the first time with my homegrown Centennials from last year. Thought I was being smart and put 5 marbles in the bag. Then quickly realized how...

No problem. I had the laundry bag that I used before and it was great. I liked the drawstring and the fact it felt substantial. I'm concerned for how long the paint strainer type that came with the...

I've done I think 6 batches now and I love the system. A few bugs to iron out but it saves so much time off my old brew day before the system.

Recirc is no issue at all but you have to use the...

I used dry sage when I made this because its what I had and it turned out fine. It's such a small amount. Be careful with the rosemary though. That really came through on mine almost too much.

You can definitely go finer. I'm currently at .030 and get around 72% usually. I'm planning to drop down to .025 for my next brew.

I don't sparge anymore now that I have an ebiab setup, but I...

I'll second Public House although I thought it was a bit expensive. Most bottles were $7-8 and the draft pours were only 10 oz I think. That was for fairly standard IPAs, nothing crazy strong that I...

Good luck! While not a wheat I do like Cerise by Founders. It showed me it was possible to have a good cherry beer after swearing them off thanks to a SA Cherry Wheat assault.

If you can avoid 3F on a weekend you'll be better off. It's a line out the door pretty much all day. Most weekdays you can walk right in. I don't even bother going over there on weekends. You can get...

Agree on the US05. I use it for pretty much everything unless I'm doing a Saison or a hefe. It's nice and clean and just does it job and let's the malt and hops shine.

I've done all my SMaSH beers with Maris Otter. I chose that when reading up because I saw comments that 2 row by itself can be kind of plain and uninspiring in a SMaSH. Some people roast a portion to...

Looks pretty good. If you've got the crystal 20 in there, I don't think you need the carapils also. But I also don't think it will necessarily hurt anything.
If you want to isolate the Mosaic, why...

I'll agree and disagree on Goose Island. I actually like the IPA. I haven't had Sofie yet, but Matilda is fantastic and I'm not a huge Belgian drinker either. On the down side, Green Line has...
