So let me be sure I understand this correctly...


You spend like $30 to $100 on a cooler and some doodads...

And then you can make 5 gallon batches of awesome beer for like less than $15??!!!!

Toot,

All grain is awsome and you can build a set up dead cheap, have a look at the other thread I've posted in.

If you consider going electric you can do it with 3 plastic pails, a couple of taps a manifold and an heating element.

The Aussies are working on a one pot brew with a bag method which seems to give good results.

I spent $100 (more like $85 plus shipping) on mine (it was a 10 gallon cooler, already converted and had a stainless steel false bottom) and it works great! I batch sparge, so I don't have to use a lauter tun, but maybe someday I'll buy a 5 gallon and a fly arm and then fly sparge.

I spent around $150 for my dual cooler AG setup and save between $15-$20 per batch. I'll have my equipment paid for in about 8 batches.


Well worth it and your quality goes up too!

Can't try it this weekend, but I was hoping that next weekend I could do up a batch of Cheesefood's CCA. I am hoping he will post his interpretation of the all-grain recipe! (for authenticity's sake, of course)
