    Dumping fresh wort onto the yeast cake

    I did feel a little dirty after dumping into that cruddy looking fermentor. :eek: I was brewing quick and dirty though. Inside on the stove top with an element in the kettle too. No re circulation and no controller, I left everything in the shed and just brewed some beer. o_O I do have a keg...

    Dumping fresh wort onto the yeast cake

    I just did it. Brewed a 1.063 porter last weekend fermented with a pack of Nottingham sprinkled on the top. Today I brewed an imperial version of the same beer, 1.084 transferred last weeks brew to a keg (done enough at 1.017) and dumped the new brew right on top of the yeast cake and left...

    "you won't save money homebrewing"

    I was just thinking about this last night as I enjoyed my 10+% bourbon chocolate stout. Comparable beers seem to go for at least 50 cents an ounce to well over a dollar an ounce. Mine cost me under a quarter an ounce to make, so the savings are pretty huge there. I figure it will only take a few...

    Do you need a 1 off Stainless part built for your system? Let's discuss it.

    Yes, I really want it to be a $15 part but it just is not working out that way. I have found a serving platter and a kettle lid that "might" work for me. They are $30 and $65 respectively. Meh, I would rather have a custom part that is to my specs than what I have found. So that leaves making it...

    Do you need a 1 off Stainless part built for your system? Let's discuss it.

    Hello Jay, Yeah I guessed fully welded would be expensive. For me a 17.5" diameter disc with a 1" rim tacked on would suffice. I think with some luck I could solder it up water tight. Probably still gonna be more than I want to spend though.

    Am I overthinking this?

    If you're asking if you should mock it up, sure. Why wouldn't you? You've already thought about it, you're half way there.

    Seeking Advice on Which Smoker to Get - Newby

    We have a Weber Bullet, 18 inch. I use charcoal or wood for chicken and pork. For fish, jerky and whatnot I just use a cheap hot plate in the bottom with a small cast iron skillet for the chips. Been sitting outside for over 10 years and besides the racks needing replaced periodically it is in...
