I'm thinking about making the jump to AG. I can't afford to buy a fancy setup and I'm really not handy enough to build anything terribly complicated. I'm thinking that I would put something together that is gravity fed.
How do the igloo coolers work for HLT and MLT? Do they hold temps well or do you need to do a lot of tinkering to get your temps right? Would it be worth it to use a stainless pot for your HLT so that you can have a burner under it and keep the temp more constant?
How much water would you plan on using throughout the day for a 5 gallon batch?
Fly sparge or batch sparge?
My knowledge of AG is so limited atm that I'm not sure what other questions need to be asked.
But I am learning.
The only things that are keeping me from REALLY pursuing this are the extended time involved, it's kind of tought when you have two 6 year olds running around, and the cost of upgrading.
