    Considering upgrade to Blichmann BrewEasy - questions...

    Thanks, NGD. Looks like the BrewEasy is still a very "hands-on" system on brew day (Bobeer made this point earlier), aside from the long list of pros and cons. If I'm being realistic, I think something more "hands-off" is probably where I need to be for now. Factor that in with the price, the...

    Considering upgrade to Blichmann BrewEasy - questions...

    Thanks for the perspective. Do you find the 5 gallon size to be limiting? I’m steering away from systems advertising 5 gallon batch because I don’t want to be stuck with like 10lb grain bills. Ideally, I’d like to be able to run a 19 or 20lb grain bill. I’m not interested in brewing large...

    Considering upgrade to Blichmann BrewEasy - questions...

    thanks for the input! I hear split opinions on 120V systems - some say it’s fine, others long for 240V. Despite my earlier insistence that 240V would be a struggle, I could just unplug my dryer in the basement or tap off my car charger (yea, I’m one of those people).I think I really wanted a...

    Considering upgrade to Blichmann BrewEasy - questions...

    Thanks, Bobeer! I appreciate your insight and experience. I’m a tad worried that the learning curve will be too steep for me going the old school route and I’ll lose steam and stop brewing. The “hi tech” stuff will keep me engaged, so that’s one reason I’m going that route. I was really...

    Considering upgrade to Blichmann BrewEasy - questions...

    I'm 2 extract brews in (Brewers Best English Pale Ale and Belgian Dark Strong, bottling the latter in a few days). I've queued up a partial mash kit for a month or so from now because I want to move out of extract into all-grain. I can also see some equipment upgrades in my future, so I've been...
