    possible BIAB equipment breakthrough I was just browsing for temperature probe controlled induction cooktops and found the paragon induction cooktop which will be released this fall. If this thing is as accurate as I hope, this coupled with a small pump would make temp...

    microbrewery bottlecans?

    Why haven't I seen any bottlecans from microbreweries? They seem like a good alternative to glass bottles and canning by hand is a possibility for start up production.

    Fast brew

    I've been busy preparing for a move to TX and been too busy to brew. My father scolded me for not keeping the kegerator stocked as he finished off two kegs on his last visit where we painted the house... who knew that was a responsibility! I needed to stock at least one keg with one week lead...

    brewing salts to inprove crispness?

    I would imagine having a proper chloride to sulfate ratio would affect cider as much as beer. What would i want for a crisp finishing cider? Gypsum just like a pale ale?

    filling mash tun and bk from the bottom?

    In an effort to reduce hot side aeration would filling my bk and mash tun from the bottoms be a bad idea? I use upsidedown keggles with tri clover center drains. Boil kettle I can't see any issues besides maybe the fill tube not getting steralized?? I can imagine the grain may float up on...
