    Dry hopping schedule

    Just started all grain brewing followed this downloaded recipe , curious about the dry hopping session is this meaning either 1: Dry hop for 14 days then add second hops for a further 7 days , so 21 days in total? Or 2: Dry hop for 14 days and when there is 7 days left add second hops ? Thankyou.

    Which Type Of Mash Tun

    Seen quite a lot of cooler type mash tuns on forums etc , Now looking around and seeing stainless steel types also usually surrounded with Bubble foil wrap. Simply is one better than the other?

    Wort temperature concern

    I ferment in buckets with stick on temperature reading LCD gauges , if as I am led to believe that the fermenting temperature could be quite a few degrees higher in the centre , what or how is the best way of obtaining the reading so I constantly know what's going on in there?

    If you had a time machine, what what you tell your beginner brew-self?

    Purchase auto siphon , use starsan instead of constantly making up powder sanitisers , making sure the kids have eaten before they are in and out of the kitchen constantly disturbing my beer making
