    I have one that is similar to the first one you posted and it hasnt failed me yet. If its cost youre worried about I would consider the first burner and with the money you save get something else that you need :)

    'syruppy' brews

    Yea I would think that the all the sugars are not being turned into alcohol leaving which in turn could leave a syrupy/malty taste. Do as they have mentioned above and make a starter as well as calculating your OG/FG and this should help. I just made a scotch ale where I actually added syrup...

    Quick sanitation question...

    Thanks a lot Scott for your comment. It does provide me a piece of mind and while the post was noobish in context I do my very best to ensure all elements of my brewing from start to finished are done as sanitary as possible.

    Always use a blow off

    hmmm i chose to not use the blow off as good yeast can get 'blown off' no? Instead I upgraded from my 5 gallon glass carboy and bought a 6 gallon better bottle used to make 5 gallon batch. It rises...doesnt hit my air lock...and then drops. I use the glass carboys for secondary

    Smoking a turkey?

    I made one this past thanks giving and it all depends on the side. A rule of thumb ive always heard is when the breast is 170 your good but then again you need to take into account that almost always it takes the dark meat longer to cook.
