You can buy directly from the Gambrinus plant?

I haven't done it yet personally but have talked to people who do. You just call in your order a day in advance and pick it up the next day. Cash only

Don from the south shore checking in. Veteran brewer, off and on, between Ontario and Nova Scotia. Wine and beer, from all grain, all grape, but doing the easy grain way with largely Festa and Brewhouse worts. Kegging large with my Danby two tap home converted corny kegerator, and getting ready to fire up my commercial Sankey/Corney True kegerator. Anyone on here tried the Micro-Brew wort from Brasse Frampton in Quebec?

Semi-new brewer in Calgary here, did the kits in University but now doing partial mash, hopefully moving to AG when I can find a sanke keg somewhere in Calgary to make a keggle with...anyone from Calgary know of a source (other than theft), or a place to get a reasonably priced 8-10 gallon stock pot?

A few good LBS in Calgary, The Vineyard usually has a good selection of grains/hops. Staff can be a bit rough around the edges and prices are steeper than online retailers, but its close and has quality stuff so can't complain too much!

I bought my pots at an East Indian food store... they have huge pots for cheap. I think I paid > $40 for my 16L pots. I don't do full boils though, just partial mashes.

If you don't have a full boil setup this is a cheap way to go:

The only complaint is it gets a little sooty when on low. Get yourself a 5 gallon strainer bag and you can do up to 1.044 5gal no sparge BIAB in it.

That's exactly what I use. I have since bought a ss pot with a valve on it. But this crappy tire turkey fryer goes on sale once or twice a year as well. The burner works great and I still use it. No reason for an upgrade at this point.
If you want a stainless pot check out ontariobeerkegs.com the 2 port welded is $79

I have 2 for side by side partigyle brews. The first one I bought is only 32qts but has some serious BTU's. The newer model is 36qts with less horsepower but a cleaner flame when on low power. Heres a pic from my easter weekend Thomas Hardy Barley Wine/AK brew.http://barclayperkins.blogspot.ca/20...pope-1967.html
