    When to switch to all grain

    Sounds like all you need is a HLT and possibly another stockpot. I use a cooler with a homemade braid and batch sparge. I heat my strike and sparge water on my stovetop then use my turkey fryer outside. Works great and I get pretty good efficiency.

    twist off bottles for bottling with pryoff caps

    Just buy a six pack here and therfe of pry-offs and you'll have a ton before you know it. That or check your local recycling center. By doing just those two things I have more bottles than I know what to do with.

    Do all autosiphons "suck"?

    Maybe it's co2 offgassing? Mine does the same exact thing and I've never worried about it and never had any off flavors. Except for and infection once. Not the autosiphon's fault.

    First outdoor LP Brewday Failure - Eastman 90314 burner

    Wind will play a big part in your outdoor boil. The first one I did the wind was blowing moderately strong and I could barely maintain my boil. That's with the 165,000 btu sp10.

    Anyone see the prices at hopsdirect

    Just ordered a pound each of cascade, northern brewer, and willamette. I thought this looked like a decent mix for some american and english and possibly german ales? Great prices though I'm waiting on a shipping price....

    Belgian 'Session' Ales?

    The only belgian I have made used belgian abbey II. Would this work well with Saccharomyces recipe? I really liked how the beer turned out with this one.

    Just brewed my 1st AG - Now I have ?s

    COOLING: 25 ft. may be a bit on the small side. I use a 50 ft. and it cools a full boil very fast. As for not getting it below 70 degrees, what is your ground water temperature? If it's not much below 70 you won't be able to cool past that with your i/c.
