    If you could start over and had $1000 what equipment would you get

    bottle ageing

    I am by no means an expert but I believe that foe higher alcohol brews such as your imperial stout aging will do them fine and I believe most cellaring occurs at 55 to 65 degree range. Again I am not really in the know but personally I think you will be fine letting them sit out and saving the...

    can i use this pump?

    Lol I am absolutely clueless as to what's going on here. I was just asking because I have this pump already and was wondering if it will adversely affect the wort or if the temps would be to much for it. Thank you for your you think it will be a good recirculation pump for the mash...

    Bottle bomb concerns

    I doubt you will have bottle bombs on this one just a kit of junk in the bottles. Did you child crash before bottling? That might help next time to cut down on the crud. Cheers

    can i use this pump?

    I was thinking maybe recirculating the mash? Do you think it would handle those temps? I am fairly unfamiliar with pumps and temperatures. Thank you for your help, do you think it would work?

    can i use this pump?

    I have this pump I previously used it to recirculating ice water from a cooler through an immersion chiller. I was wondering if I could use for something else in the process. What do y'all think?

    The only reason I ask is I had an experience where before I had researched it I brewed with distilled water and it came out very bland in the end. Just curious

    2nd attempt

    Sounds good but I worry that steeping the grains till boiling might be bad. From my knowledge anything higher than 170 pulls out unwanted tannins. I'm still a newbie so I'd want to hear someone else backing that up. Good luck *edit: sry I should have read the whole thing you got it

    mill speed.

    I received a grain mill for Christmas, it is the barley crushed mill that is quite common. I have not reset the gap from factory setting but my question is if I am using a power drill to run the mill, could the speed of the mill shred the husks to much? If so what's the easiest way to get the...
