So, finally got unpacked enough to do my first brew with my new setup.. made a cream ale for my father...
New items used this time:
1. Direct fire mash tun and water tun on cart purchased locally from academy sports.
2. March pump (forgot to tighten one of the barbs.. was a leak for a little while)
3. Bazooka tube
4. Fermentation fridge with Johnson control.
5. Homemade mash paddle
All in all.. it was pretty successful of a day.. need to get used to the DFMT, hitting the temps was fun.
finished product in the fridge..
