    Hot Water Urns

    I actually went the other way, started with a turkey fryer and went electric because having to deal with propane tanks and an actual flame is much more costly and difficult to control respectively.

    Hot Water Urns

    After more research, you're better off getting a portable 1500watt immersion heater for 7-8 bucks shipped on ebay. That's the route i am going to take... what good is an urn if i have to 1. replace spigot 2. replace element... i mean outside the container itself those are the only two things...

    Hot Water Urns

    Funny you ask this, i'm actually debating myself of going this route as i prepare myself for a all automated electric setup. Now i've used these urns quite a bit with work and let me tell you... it's not the quickest as most use a heating element lower than those available in home depot...

    Less than 5 gallons in my carboy, Can I add water?

    How many batches before you bought a wort chiller?

    0 20 bucks to save you 3hrs of time is pretty much giving you back your money in time the same batch.

    anyone tried this? sanke keg fermenter idea

    I honestly don't understand the big fascination with stainless fermenters and clamps on this board... maybe it has to do with everyone calling their garage setups a "brewery" despite being non-commercial.

    Separate gear for sour beer?

    Sorry to bump a past thread, but my question is relevant and i didn't want to make a new thread. So for sours, it takes nearly 6 months to start tasting "sour" and "tart" flavors, but with regular non-sour beers we generally brew in primary and secondary for 1-3 months. So even in the case of...

    Easy Way to Make Sour Beers (1 gal wort + dregs)

    Few question guys as i am new to lambics, The addition of hops is not required correct? But rather it would add complexity/taste. For a five gallon batch (I dont see myself going back to mini 1 gallon brews) how many dregs (cake on the bottom of the bottle?) would i need? Starter required? Thanks

    Fruit Beer Lemon-Lime Hefe Weizen

    looks fine to me, not may things can survive in a alcoholic, acidic and anaerobic environment. With that said i would bottle a few and keg it just to keep it in the fridge where not much grows due to the temp.

    Fruit Beer Lemon-Lime Hefe Weizen

    Aluminum SCUBA tank Conical?

    All of that comes ready in those old fire extinguishers... you just clean, add beer and pressurize through a side valve.
