Well, the guy that introduced me to brewing has been telling me that spending money on a therminator is a costly investment when he already brews good beer... I see a lot of room for improvement on both our brewing fronts and figure we could use all the help we can get...
This discussion led to the following experiment:
Hop Head Double IPA Extract Kit X 2 w/ Dry Yeast ( US-05; military in italy)
Who's process makes a tastier beer? Our hopes is that a little competition and sharing our notes post brew will lead to a little insight on what "REALLY" makes a good extract brew.
The loser buys the therminator, but the winner can borrow it as needed...
Obviously, this all changes with full-grain--but we'll keep it simple for now. We have the exact same set-ups...
Stay tuned for NOTES and a process breakdown--
Any notes would be greatly appreciated!!!
