    Costco/Kirkland brand craft beer

    Yes agree, I am sure they are very efficient in their processing for yielding large amounts of beer at a lower cost. Craft beer steps away from that model and focuses beer quality. I am no beer snob and enjoy a nice cold Bud on a hot summer day. Roger that on the American Light Lager.

    Costco/Kirkland brand craft beer

    The pressure to put product on the shelf at cost leads to short cuts and BMC brewing techniques. I wouldn't get too excited.

    Avocado beer

    here is an idea. Throw some jalapenos in the late boil and dry hop with cilantro. You might be onto something.

    What's the beer you keep brewing over and over again?

    Closed transfer from SS Brewtech BME Chronical

    Where did I go wrong?

    Did you do a SG reading when the wort was hot? I plugged your grain bill into BeerSmith and it says your OG should be around 1.038 with the extra .25 gallon. I assumed you mashed at 152-155 for an hour.

    Thinking about getting a Grainfather...

    This is what I use. It's more expensive than grainfather, but you won't grow out of it. Good luck with what ever you chose. https://brewhaequipment.com/products/biac-all-in-one-brewing-system-package

    THAT GUY at the brewery tour.

    I try hard not to be that guy. Seems like every hipster with a beard and knit cap are "hop experts" now. If I have questions I will try to have a quiet one on one with the brewer. There is one place I enjoy going to occasionally where they know I home brew, and I bring my beer in for them to...
