So, finally got unpacked enough to do my first brew with my new setup.. made a cream ale for my father...

New items used this time:

1. Direct fire mash tun and water tun on cart purchased locally from academy sports.
2. March pump (forgot to tighten one of the barbs.. was a leak for a little while)
3. Bazooka tube
4. Fermentation fridge with Johnson control.
5. Homemade mash paddle


All in all.. it was pretty successful of a day.. need to get used to the DFMT, hitting the temps was fun.



new setup


yeast starter


finished product in the fridge..

How did the academy cart work for you? Did you recirculate your mash while direct heating it?

Looking good, but you need to scale your pics down to about 800x600 before linking.

the fridge, like i said, is at 68ish... and the freezer is in the 40's like 45-41.. not very stable.. but should stay around those temps.. but changes quickly if the door is open.
