    From wort to serving: What are the disadvantages of this lazy brewing setup?

    As I lay awake last night, insomnia running wild, I spent a long time thinking about the laziest (and cheapest) brewing setup that I could possibly imagine. It's not quite automated, but it does remove most of the headaches I experience post-boil. Let me hear your thoughts on this possible...

    Going All Grain On a Budget (w/ real sparging step)

    First off let me introduce myself, I've been a brewing for almost 2 years and did one batch of Mr. Beer, two batches with extract + special grains steep and I immediately wanted to get more control over the beer I made but I am not ready to commit lot of money into an all grain system (welded...

    Cheapest Way To Make Cider

    Hello all! I'm new to this whole homebrewing thing, and I'm also a starving college student in the midst of his undergrad program. As such, and as someone that highly enjoys the sport of drinking, one night my friend and I decided we should be able to make our own cider for less than $30.00...

    Cooling Wort Fast Without A Chiller

    I use two different methods for cooling 5 gallons of wort down after boiling it. One for summer brewing and one for winter brewing. Neither of these include a wort chiller, as I have not purchased one yet. I thought sharing these methods just might help a new or even an experienced brewer out...

    Creating A Weldless BIAB Brew Stand For Cheap

    I started homebrewing last year, and as the amount of equipment I used grew, I found the amount of time that I spent hauling stuff up and down from my basement was rivaling the amount of time I spent brewing (not to mention the number it was doing on my back). Additionally, due to my particular...

    Hello forum, I'm wondering if any people here have experimented with using less expensive hops on the hotside of the brewing process... Chinook, columbus, centennial, cascade etc.. while keeping the expensive pungent hops like Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy etc exclusively for dry hopping. I know...

    Best Cheap Hop Combos

    I've been intrigued about hop combos and their biotransformations ever since I heard Stan Hieronymus speak about them. Using nugget and chinook in the whirl pool and/or dry hop produce something much fruitier/tropical than either on their own. I've tried it and it seems to be true. Has anyone...

    Wheat Ale on the cheap

    I'm looking to throw together a wheat ale on the cheap, possibly add some mango to it. I have yeast, equipment, etc; no hops though. I was thinking maybe doing an extract brew was the way to go. Any suggestions on what / where to buy? Last time I did extract brewing it was in a kit but I figured...

    World's cheapest counter pressure bottle filler

    I just wanted to share the way that I've been filling bottles from the keg, since I haven't seen anyone else do it this way. Literally all you need is a 2 inch piece of 1/2 inch ID silicone hose. The key to this is that the hose creates an airtight seal between the tap and the bottle so that...

Brew Bucket = $$$ (Big Money) Grainfather = $$$ (Expensive) Glycol chillers = $$$ (Costly and complicated - No way Jose) Brew Jacket = $$$ (Whoa, I'll have to save up a long time for this one) Runnig air conditioner...

    FS 25ft CFC

    I made a cfc out of 3/8" copper tubing and used a high temp rated hose for the outer plumbing on it. I have used it a few times and it cools batches very efficiently. I am just not brewing as much as I should and would like to lower my gear inventory. I am willing to ship and will listen to any...
