    I am currently fermenting Ovaltine.

    Conditioning.....Fact vs Fiction

    my recent results: milk stout - amazing at 2-3 months (best beer i've made by far and even non beer drinkers liked it), now at 7-8 months it's certainly taking a turn for the worse. I thought a nice roasty stout would age better than this. Black IPA - had a pretty significant twang early on at...

    DFH 120 Min:)

    i had some 120 for the first time a few weeks ago on tap. i didn't like it at all. horrible alcohol bite and way to sweet. i wonder if it was just too young. i'll have to try and get a bottle and age it.

    ebay aquarium temp controller build

    I just harvested this from a power strip. Should I keep the circuit breaker or lop it off?

    ebay aquarium temp controller build

    do I need to put a fuse on this? I've seen some builds with fuses built in and others without it. Not sure if it's necessary or not. Would a power strip with a surge protector work just as well?

    Using a pasta maker to mill grain.

    I had mine set at 4 and it took about 45 minutes to go through 4.5lbs. moved the setting larger (i think 3) and it took about 15 minutes to go through another 5.5lbs. crush still looked good and overall i hit around 75% eff on my 1st batch with it

    Ranco controller, Chiller, Igloo mash tun, more...

    Not sure what you have left. But I'd be interested in the chiller and ranco and could pick them up. Maybe one of the carboys also.
