I got the impression that he came up with the coffee pot idea and then the writer just made up the rest

OOoo... false readings...

the water comes out at 170, then after a little while I noticed the temps went up to like 174! I guess through the mash I'll have to keep an eye on where its at. Good thing is that it comes out at 170 so I should hit my temps. I can adjust the temps up by turning the thing on/off.

Nice site! Great Pics! Thanks for sharing.

I can't say it's a hobby yet. I love doing it and am lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I hope to turn it into a hobby though. The eagles come down here from AK and Canada when the rivers freeze up north. I'll see if I can find a pic sans telephoto.

Everything seemed like it might fly in an effort to make mediocre (at best) beer, until it got to the baker's yeast part. From what I gather, baker's yeast makes some serious swill on a good day, and it's not sterile (ie: there's probably Brett, lacto, and other undesirables in there).

I can't believe how close that is to what we need.

No. Just that it is closer than I thought it would be. I was guessing the temp would be around 190. I'm thinking of bringing it down by adding cold water right before the pot starts sending it upwards. I'll have to play with it to get it right.

Afraid not. I was supposed to buy myself a Barley Crusher for Christmas but life got in the way. As a result I don't have any grain on hand. I live about 60 miles from my HBS so it's not going to happen any time soon. I'll live vicariously through you guys.
