    Computer controlled Vs. Component/manual Controlled?

    Hey all, I've seen plenty of threads of controller builds on this site. There are lots of awesome ways to control a brewery! I'm at the beginning stages of developing my brewery and I'm trying to decided if I want my control box to be ran by a simple computer (Raspberry Pi) or go with the...

    Another Jockey Box question

    I've decided to go with two 50' of 5/16" coils in my box to make sure they can cool room temp beer to serving temp. I don't want to have to spend more $$ on extra shanks so, how do I connect the "in" end of the coil to the beer source? Just a compression fitting of some sort? Thanks!

    Show us your Sous Vide Cooker!

    I'm working on mine now and I have (I think) all the parts but I'd love to see what you all have come up with. I know some of you are using HLTs for double duty. So I want to see some pics!!

    Cold Plate sources?

    Hello all! I need to make a jockey box for an outdoor wedding in September. I guess the more economical choice is the cold plate since I'll need three taps. What's the best place to buy them? Are they all stainless steel lines? Thanks for the info!

    Another Newb!

    I've lurked the Kombucha forum long enough! Y'all gave me such good information that today I actually got my stuff together and now have a scoby starter in the making. It was pretty easy too, all the info here made me quite confident that I could get it to work. The only possible downside is...

    Refractometer > hydrometer

    After calibrating my refractometer and hydrometer with the same DI water I still get a discrepancy in the results. On today's brew, I get 1.047 with the hydrometer and 1.044 with the refractometer. Any suggestions?

    1" couplers or nuts?

    My electric kettle is currently setup as weldless. The element gets tighten by a 1" nut & o-ring. I'm thinking of having the nut permanently welded on. Should I consider a 1" coupler instead? And where do I find one of those? Thanks guys!

    RIMS flow control

    So how do you guys control the flow of wort in a RIMS? Do you restrict the flow with a valve or control the speed of the pump with something like a dimmer switch or a PWM? Thanks!

    Janet's Brown Ale, Category?

    I brewed a tweaked version of the brown ale and am thinking of entering it in comps. What category would it best fit in? I don't think it's quite the standard brown ale... Thoughts?

    Trip to Bend, OR

    Hello folks! I'll be taking the family on a last minute getaway to Bend Or next week. Instead of our usual whirlwind tour we're just staying in the same B&B for a week and enjoying the area. So what are your thoughts on the local brews? I know the "Ale Trail" is a big thing there but other...

    Brewing Blogs?

    Hey guys & gals, do any of you keep blogs about your brewing exploits? I thought about setting one up, but I might be too lazy to keep it up after a while... who knows. I did setup a twitter account & Facebook page just for my brewing. I guess micro-blogging is easier. Anyway, show us yours!

    Fruit press Vs. Juicer

    Why should I get a fruit press instead of a juicer to get the yumminess out of fruit for beers, ciders ect.? Is there a real advantage?

    Productive day!

    I didn't feel like getting any real work done today, so instead I worked in my brewery. I kegged a batch of APA, washed a couple of fermenters, brewed a batch of Summer Wheat, washed some yeast, and whipped up a small batch of Applewien. The next thing I'm going to do is place an order for...
