Glad I didn't try to brew today, we had 25 mph gusts today in Massachusetts. Built a collar for my keezer instead.

This is the exact reason I want to go E-HERMs in my basement; for now though, the partial boil AG on the stove top slakes my brew-lust.

I'm eyeballing that too, but a massive propane burner was a big step up from the stovetop. Not bad as an interim step, but I can't take many more of these cold weather brew days.

How large are you asking about. We have people on this site who brew from 1 gallon to multiple BBL batches. Some people here have gone pro and brew commercially.

Hi I am starting to use the brewferm mini kegs for convenience of storing but In only getting four off a five gallon brew. I'm looking to start brewing to get around ten, ten pint mini kegs. So around 12 to 15 gallons. Also do you know of a good place to get bulk grains and ingredients?

Thanks very much

Well 10-15 gallon batches are not that bad. Just scale your recipes and you should be pretty close. As for bulk grains, you can check out the Group Buys part of this forum and see if anyone in your area is working on one (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f174/). Addiitionally some people introduce themselves to the brewers at local brewpub/microbreweries/craft breweries and can at times order grains by the sack through them. Local Homebrew Stores will also usually sell by the sack for cheaper than the 1-5 lb increments.
