    Why does big mouth bubbler have threads?

    The original screw on lids did not seal well, so they started using the push in tops. I had to buy the newer style, they should have replaced them for free.

    Who bottle conditions 34/70?

    Nice thing about bottling is that you can test one after a certain amount of time and see how it is, then log your results.

    Ohio Akron, Ohio area homebrewers

    When Mike opened the store in that little shopping center, I was so glad to have a local store. He has come a long way, expanding the business. I used to drive to Westlake to buy beer ingredients and equipment. Mike has a great selection.

    Will this cheap 3500 watt induction burner work?

    About 4 gallons. The diameter of my pot is 12". The size of the the top surface of the unit is 11" x 11", it probably would be less efficient if the pot had a larger diameter.

    Will this cheap 3500 watt induction burner work?

    Well I have had my 3500 watt unit for some time but just used it for the first time, yesterday. I had been using a 1800 watt Duxtop. I would say the results were amazing, fast boil, and great control of the boil to prevent boil over messes. I am very happy with the results. By the way, I...

    I wouldn't get too hung up on people calling it 110 or 220 or 440. I remember as a kid it was 117 volts instead of 120. what your power company delivers should be fine. Saying that, the village where I am a plant electrician was giving us low voltage last summer. What was supposed to be 2300...
