    First Brew Competition

    I know I'm a dork but I'm entering my first homebrew competition tomorrow and I'm nervous as hell. It's a bit different in I'm not just bottling a few and having them judged.

    1000W Hot Plate for Maintaining Temp

    I googled this and couldn't really get a good answer. Would a 1000 W portable electric burner be enough to MAINTAIN (not get to temp) 2-3 gallons of water in a aluminum pot? I'm planning on using my propane burner to get to 155°F then transfer the pot to the hotplate which will be...

    Party Pig Mini Fridge

    Ok this may sound like a goofy question, but what is the smallest mini fridge I could get for a Party pig to fit. My wife won't let me keep the little bugger in out kitchen fridge. I can't really argue with her because, well she's my wife, and she let's me brew with minimal complaints. I...
