    Beating a dead horse... kinda

    I use one of these electric turkey heaters as a HLT. It workers pretty good. But Walker is right that the temperature control is crappy. Mine only allows you to adjust the set point in 25 degree increments. I usually just set the set point at 200 and monitor the temp with an separate...

    This was my third AG batch, and it has turned out the best. I think this is a great recipe. Thanks blacklab.

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    Just to update this post, my keg did clear up after about 3 weeks. I brewed the Austin Homebrew Kalamazoo IPA this weekend, and the grain bill was surprisingly similar to this recipe.

    How big is your panel?

    Well I bought a control panel box off of eBay. It is 20x11x9", and it has a console design. I have not seen any other boxes like it. I think it should work pretty good.

    How big is your panel?

    How about opinions on metals versus plastic? Plastic would be easier to drill and cut.

    How big is your panel?

    I am going to use 3 pids from Auber like Kal's setup. There will be 3 contactors in the box. I do not intend to have the amp and volt meters that Kal has on his panel.

    How big is your panel?

    I have been looking at panel enclosures on eBay recently. What size panel are most people using? I know Kal recommends a minimum of a 16x16x8 box. There is a pretty good deal on eBay fora 12x12x6 box. Will it be too cramped?

    Another Electric Build - Morgan Dollar Brewery

    Nice panel. Where did you get the disconnect switch? I have been looking for one, but I have been scared of the price.

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    Well I have been drinking my first batch of this recipe for about 10 days now. It has a nice clean taste to it. The next time I brew this recipe I am going to try dry hopping as others have recommended. I would like it to be slightly more hoppy. My keg also has not completed cleared yet, but...

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    I just popped my all grain cherry with this recipe. It took me 5 hours start to finish. I calculated a 81% efficiency, so I am pretty happy. Thanks for the recipe. I can't wait to taste it.

    Thermowell needed in mash tun

    I'm going to add an RTD to my mash tun. What is the benefit of using a thermowell as opposed to just having the RTD directly in the mash?

    Favorite place to buy extract kits?

    I have only bought from AHS, but I have been very pleased with their service. I also really like the selection of kits they have. Plus as a UT graduate I like to support Austin businesses.

    AHS American IPA high final gravity

    Thanks for the suggestions. I am going to bring it up from the basement to raise the temperature, give it a gentle stir, and then let it sit for another week.

    AHS American IPA high final gravity

    I am brewing the AHS American IPA I liquid extract kit. The recipe says the final gravity is supposed to be 1.012. I am at 1.020 now, and the beer has been in the primary for 3 weeks. The original gravity was dead on the recipe at 1.060. Is it safe to keg the beer now or should I wait?

    apricot heff extract gone bad

    I brewed the Apricot Wheat extract kit from AHS. It ended up with a very strong medicinal taste like cough syrup. It was only my second batch, so I thought that I had messed it up.
