    Looking to Upscale

    That sounds good!!! But from time to time, I make some high gravity beers, and I would like to be able to do them in 10 gal batches too. Does anyone know if and where I can find a 15 gal igloo beverage cooler?

    Looking to Upscale

    I want to move from 5 gal to 10 gal batches. I am not sure what equipment changes or upgrades I need. I know I need at least a 15 gal pot, but I'm not sure if my 10 gal igloo mash tun can handle 10 gal batches. Any suggestions?

    Flavoring Question

    I am planning to make a Vanilla Baltic Porter. I am just not sure how I am going to flavor it. I have had an idea to put pure vanilla extract in the last few minutes of the boil, but not sure how much to use and how long to boil. I have also thought about using vanilla beans in the secondary...

    baltic porter

    I have made a Baltic Porter twice now. The first time I brewed it I did not hit my gravity and the ABV was lower than expected, but I used a lager yeast but fermented at a low ale temp. It turned out great. I just re-brewed it with a british ale yeast and hit my gravities(9.2 ABV); just bottled...

    Your first time. (if you can remember.)

    My first brew day was almost exactly 3 years ago. I had a Brewer Best IPA kit. I tried to do a full boil on an electric stove. I followed the instructions step by step. But no one told me that I needed to top off the finished product. I had 3 gals of pretty good beer, but it was strong. I had...

    What does your HBT name mean?

    I played rugby all through college and still dabble in it from time to time. A rugger is a term for a rugby player, and I love to brew!!!

    First all grain 1 question

    I am an all-grain brewer. I only have I kettle. I just heat my sparge water about half-way through my mash and pour that into a 5 gal drink cooler until I am ready for my sparge.

    Anther failed attempt

    The best advice I can give is... keep trying. The worse thing a new brew can do is get discourage and throw in the towel. I would also suggest if you know someone with more experience brew with them, that way you can ask questions as you go. You may also want to try a pre-made extract kit...
