    bayou cooker

    bayou cooker

    Anyone use there bayou cooker in the garage? Is it safe? Saw that some people were brewing during the rainy weekend and I just got mine. Wondering if I can do it or should I wait for a nicer day?

    homebrewing.org equipment

    Does anyone have any experience with homebrewing.org's 10 gallon all grain cooler kit? I have decided to buy a kit rather than building it myself and this kit looks like a great deal. Just curious on anyone's thoughts that have purchased or used this kit.
