This is still available.

Thank you for the offers so far, but I don't want to ship, and I'd like to keep trying to sell it as a package if possible.

Philadelphia: 15.5g Kettle, Blichmann Burner, Immersion Chiller

Since my daughter was born, I haven't had time to do all-grain batches. As a result, I've decided to sell a few things.

The first item is a Penrose Kettle. These are no longer manufactured. ...

Wow! I've heard some criticisms of my graff, but heat has never been one of them, even when it was young. Do you mean it actually tastes hot (alcoholic), or do you mean they drank some and it had...

I changed a number of things (new MLT, brewed inside instead of out, different thermometer), so I do not feel like I can accurately guess my efficiency.

I have to question this. My beer is pretty clear, and I don't filter. I find that a combination of cold crashing and force carbing gives a pretty clear product.

I can also think of at least some...

Measureing ABV without OG

I made 9.5 gallons (supposed to be 11, but I messed up) of centennial blonde ale on Sunday. Due to numerous problems (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/psa-check-everything-403393/), I was pretty...

I was doing some all-grain brewing in my kitchen today. Here are two problems I ran into. I thought posting them here might help out others.

Don't be discouraged. Just use decent quality apple juice, and it should be drinkable relatively quickly. My first batch was bottled 13 days after I made it, and I cracked the first bottle 2-3...

You are correct that a chemical compound is a chemical compound. The issue is that you can't buy 100% pure CO2 (or most anything else), there are always impurities. The question is what level of...

Awesome, thanks for the tip. I hadn't found a place yet. I'm still on my first tank, but I'll need to fill it eventually. That's not too far out of my way.

Your math on the 75% point looks correct to me. I always do SG - 0.75*(SG-FG) = time for the diacetyl rest.

As for lowering the temp, I wouldn't worry about it, just throw it in the fridge. I do...

That makes sense, I just figured I wouldn't have any, since I force carbed instead of adding sugar.

It was originally outside the fridge (~800), then I put it in the fridge before noticing it was at ~600. I bet that's why it dropped.
