Stepping it up - 10g
Ok, currently I have a Rubbermaid 10g MLT and am comfortably making 5g batches. However, I think it might make my Brew Days a bit more efficient if I went with 10g batches, splitting into 2 fermentors.
I'm thinking of keeping my MLT - I should be able to mash 10g of 1.060 beer. Any big beers I can happily keep to a 6g batch.
I'll need a new brew pot.
I live in Texas and ground water temps are high.
I'd prefer to not use a plate chiller, I'd rather immersion and whirlpool.
Generally, I batch sparge.
My options are:
A) Go with a 15g Blichmann (or do I need 20g)
B) Build a Keggle for a pot
1) How best to filter out trub/break/pellet hops from the pot to fermenter.
2) Best way to chill.
3) Flexibility for the future. (Tiered system?)
