My friend talked about the exact rocks you're supposed to use. If I ever remember to talk to him about it, I'll post.

Awesome! Not only does it require a correct type of rock, I have to be able to find it!

Graywacke is the traditionally used rock from a historical perspective, but the requirements are:

(1) can take the thermal shock of being heated and cooled
and
(2) will not interact chemically with the wort itself.

Some rocks will change the pH quite a bit, along with rub off in the beer.

Used this method yesterday brewing my first AG, BM's Centennial Blonde Ale and it worked like a champ. A lot more work involved than using extract but fun regardless. Its been about 14 hours since I added yeast and the thing is bubbling like mad just fermenting away. Cant wait to try it. thanks for the tutorial Death Brewer.

That look seriously easy. I'm at 30 day in primary on my first extract and I have two more kits to do. But you made AG look very simple to do without all the equipment. I think I'm going to try this after I finish my two kits. thanks DeathBrewer, you the man.

Glad to hear some new people are trying it! Let me know if you have any questions.

I jumped right in with an Imperial Stout, had lower than expected SG but the brew turned out fantastic, honestly probably the best beer I've ever had. And I drank them young too haha (I always seem to drink my brews young)

Hefeweizen are some of my favorites. Standard Hefeweizen recipe:

6 lbs Wheat Malt
4 lbs Pilsner Malt
2 oz Aromatic Malt
Mash @ ~150F

60 minute bittering addition of hops at ~10 IBUs.
Best hops are Tettnanger, Hallertau, Saaz, or any Noble-type Hops. Fuggle works well, too.

WLP300 with a starter for a nice fermentation. Ferment in the low 60s for clean flavor.
