    I started all-grain brewing 6 years ago in Washington state using a gravity system with a 10 gallon cooler mash tun. I was making a very good Bavarian Hefeweizen full a lot of body.

    Kentucky Like new 10 gallon Mash Tun

    I bought a 10 Gallon cooler Mash Tun from AIH to use until I built one from a 15.5 gallon Sanke keg. I have it built and no longer need it.

    HERMS question

    When you mash out using a HERMS do you bring your mash up to 170 degrees by heating your HLT water and running it through the coil or just mash out by sparging with 170 degree water from your HLT?

    Need help with Vienna Larger recipe

    I'd like to brew a Vienna Larger type of beer, maybe something like a Dos Equis Amber or Negro Modelo. I like both of these but think that a homebrewed version would be much better. Does anyone have a recipe they could share? Thanks,

    Coffee_Creek E-HERMS Build

    Just starting my E-HERMS build this weekend. I plan to have three Keggles, HLT, MLT, BK and three pumps. I want to run two 5500 watt elements at the same time along with two pumps. For now I'm looking at buying a chiller from Sabco, it's very pricey but it does what I want to do. We'll see...

    Capture yeast from blow off?

    I just started brewing two months ago and have a lot to learn. After trying my hand at washing yeast from primary, I noticed that when I use a yeast starter and blow off tube( half gal mason jar) I end up with lots of "stuff" in the jar that looks like yeast. If I used sanitized water, jar and...
