    El Paso Hop Project at Ode Brewery

    I supply Ode with my fresh mushrooms and offered to help them grow hops. They gave me the green light so i ordered up a drip system, cascade and centennial rhizomes and got to work. I mixed in 6 30 lb spent mushroom logs, one yard of compost and 4lbs plant tone organic fertilizer. The drip...

    Craft The Perfect Draft - The 420 Special Wheat

    @Jcruse your calculations may be off due to three factors, did you calculate using whole leaf or pellets, what was the harvest AA% and what IBU scale are u using Tinseth or Rager?

    Craft The Perfect Draft - The 420 Special Wheat

    With boiling the honey you boil off any flavor and are basically just add sugar.. at $3 a lb. I would recommend partially cooling and mixing in the honey post boil, allowing time to kill the natural yeasts, much like making a mead.

    Electric BIAB, no pump, no element guard

    I was eyeing a SS plate on amazon until i scored a 9" SS expandable steamer for $2. I removed all the aluminum prop rods with a drill and have a perfect bag guard! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001FBCP7O/?tag=skimlinks_replacement-20

    Electric BIAB, no pump, no element guard

    I just burnt a hole in one of wilserbrewers bags this weekend using a 1800w induction burner. :( Luckily its right near the stitching so i can just shorten the bag and remove the burnt parts. Looks like I'm in the market for a bag protector.

    Speeding Up Brew Day

    While reduced volume may shorten your brew day, increased BTU will do the same. My HLT has 9000w of elements, this brings my water to strike temp in a fraction of the time compared to most propane burners. It takes about 12 min for 12-14 gal to get from room to strike temp if i recall correctly...

    Electric BIAB, no pump, no element guard

    I wonder how an element guard with a channel going up the side of the pot would work using convection currents. It should effectively recirculate the wort all by itself. Not as effective as a pump but cheaper, less equipment required, and less to clean.

    possible BIAB equipment breakthrough

    Can a mod move this to the BIAB section please?

    Electric BIAB, no pump, no element guard

    I'm with wilserbrewer on this. A makeshift element guard is a no brainer and shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg if done diy. Some scrap SS would fit the bill as well as all those listed above. A 12v pump is also sort of a no brainer, especially if you already dished the money out for a PID.

    possible BIAB equipment breakthrough

    http://www.gizmag.com/paragon-induction-cooktop/35972/ 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...

    source for SS adjustable pressure relief valve

    Im trying to source the SS adjustable pressure relief valves seen on some DIY counterpressure fillers and this model, http://www.morebeer.com/products/counter-pressure-bottle-filler.html?gclid=CjwKEAjw3sKpBRDJ7rDqzsyuhDASJACZAiki_gKGdtG3EWvwyEptC1vsu2WGPDzydBkI7xvABJu7NhoCwHbw_wcB
