Actually you can use anywhere between 1.0 and 2.0 quarts per pound of grain. The standard seems to be about 1.25 qt/lb but I use 1.5. If you get the mash too thick or too thin you will have...

I get virtually no leakage from my jars of wort. The most common cause of this boilover is reducing the pressure too fast. As the temperature rises, the boiling point gets higher. At the end of...

Our local Target store is closing them out this week at $20. If I didn't already have two, I would jump right on that. :) More seriously, having an extra burner and pot around comes in handy if...

You won't get any off flavors from the krausen unless you leave the beer in primary for 2 or 3 months. The "hangover contributing resins" you are talking about are the fusel alcohols that result...

If you are batch sparging, a shallow grain bed in a big cooler works just fine. The only difficulty would be heat loss from the large surface area relative to the depth of the grain.

It is hard to pin down when my "brewing" actually begins. I think about brewing a couple times a week, but obviously don't brew that often.

I run water through my RO filter the night before. ...

Hold on folks! The OP is batch sparging and a lot of you are basing your advice on fly sparging. Batch sparging goes fast. Fly sparging goes slow. Sea is not complaining about stuck sparges, so...

As a rule of thumb you want your fermenter to be at least 25% bigger than the wort size to allow for the krausen. Your 6.5's are ideal for 5 gallon batches.

Yes, yeast will give off heat during fermentation. A temperature rise of 7-10 is not uncommon at high krausen. Among other things, the higher the temperature of the wort at pitching (along with...

Once you figure the right ratio of the two beers, go ahead and mix them. Nothing wrong with that. Historically, many beers were blended. Porters were traditionally blended between old ("stale")...
