    Brew Rig - Brewery 10

    I use 2 love controllers for my brew rig. One for the HLT and the other will be for the MT. Because my mash is direct fire, I find it best to have two thermometers, one below the false bottom and one in the mash itself. this gives a more accurate temp reading when recirculating. Boiling...

    Brew Rig - Jafo's Single Tier

    I have to thank my wife for hating the smell of brewing. This, I think really caused my advancement rather than stifling it. At our old house I built a shed solely for brewing, and when we moved to a new house a shed was one of the first things to go in our backyard. Boiling Equipment: Three...

    Brew Rig - Bottineau Prairie Brewing

    When a water supply pipe burst in the ceiling of a basement storage room, I had to completely demolish it & rebuild. Rather than build another storage room, I tried to convince my wife to let me turn it into a brewing room. After a single visit to Bryan Rabe's basement brewery, she was convinced...

    Brew Rig - DeBrewer's Home Brewery

    I am running it as a no-sparge. I have a 3rd pot that I can put in place if I decide. There has been discussion on the benefits of not sparging (phenol and tannin extraction) so I am going to see how it goes. I waste a little extra cash on grain but thankfully buying it in bulk makes it...

    Brew Rig - Brew Mobile

    Hand-built, wooden brew sculpture on locking casters. Most thought was given to function. I wanted a setup that was gravity fed, portable, and sturdy. It has cut 2-3 hours out of my brewday and much less lifting of heavy and hot objects. It is also nice that everything I need on a brewday is on...

    Brew Rig - Acapella Brewing

    I'm a microbiologist and I specialize in sterilization--so I have am coming from a unique perspective. I'm not sure if it's helping or hindering though! I love to reinvent the wheel.
