I've never done anything with brats other than straight to the grill. The other night I grilled, split them open, then put on some dark rye bread with lots of spicy mustard and kraut.

Success! Fermentation went great, none of the nasty goo that accumulated on top last time. Tastes good, a bit too salty. I think the original recipe was good, but I should have cut back on salt...

Let us know how the pump holds up. That one is about half the price of what I've got, so when I inevitably forget to turn it off before going out of town and burn it out, yours might be a good...

Wow, this came back from the dead. I guess it's time for a long-overdue followup. I managed to wait approx 4 weeks before giving it a try. It was delicious, but just didn't seem like it was quite...

The micro brew series is pulley driven. One pulley for each of the two rollers. Means you need to use two motors, or get clever with jackshafts. On the plus side, that means both rollers are...
