    Wort chillers

    I hated the water wastage too, but largely solved that by getting a $30 800 GPH aquarium pump. Now the bulk of the water is just recirculated from a 5-gallon bucket of ice water.

    How Many Gallons Brewed In 2021

    I was going to update but am now thoroughly confused about the correct totals. Why are homebrewers so bad at basic math? 😂 If anyone wants to figure it out, my final entry for the year: 5 gallons of Roggenbier

    New post a picture of your pint

    Made my first Roggenbier a few weeks ago. Same experience as yours - draining took forever. So would you add rice hulls next time even though it's BIAB?

    Most overrated beer

    Disagreed with probably 75% of this, but hey to each their own! The point about sours is I think misguided. I mean why would you ever eat cheese if you follow that line of thinking? I'm not a sour freak, but I picked up a bottle of Panil Barriquée sometime well before the sour craze hit (where I...
