That's the same type of container I use for my no-chilling, though mine is just a smudge over 5 gallons. US Plastics sells containers like that.

That would end up costing me $1000 in other upgrades by the time it's all said and done.


The only thing that I will add after this is a 20 gallon pot at some point in the future. I've been eyeballing something like this. However, I want to snag some more lab equipment before then.

15 gallon fermenters 20 gallon kettles. So much for not much equipment.

I'm with Bottomland. It'd take a lot of extra money and equipment to go up much in batch size. I'm still lifting 5 gallons of hot strike water.

Did my wife get a hold of your ear? That would be the last of the equipment! Promise

I don't see a bigger kettle getting purchased for a long while. I'll probably only use the 15 gallon a few times a year to brew stuff to split with friends and family.

Ha!

Can never have too much stuff. I Don't mind the equipment I have and I like to look at other people's tiered systems and all but I'm ok with what I've got right now.

I keep eyeing that dual burner deal and thinking that it could possible eliminate some of the lifting.

New line of questioning. Step mashing.

What does it do? I hope i'm not getting the terminology wrong, but i referring to mashing when you have to do Protein rest, sacharification rest, mash out, etc... What are the advantages, or needs to do this?

My mashing is a single step, add water at such and such degrees for 1 hour.

That's a beast of a pellicle. I've never seen a brett pellicle bubble so beautifully.

Here's my Boxer's Revenge peillicle that has formed this week. Not as impressive.




I also just ran by Brewstock. Might get a brew in this afternoon.

11 lbs Pilsner
1 lb Munich
1 lb Rye
0.5 lb Acid malt

Most likely go with Northern Brewer for the hops.

I also picked up the dry saison yeast. Never tried it before and I wanted to give it a shot.

No reason to do this with modern grains. Decoction mashing may be beneficial for some grains and getting a certain taste though.

My strike water is heating for my saison. I get to try out my new toy today. Got tired of breaking hydrometers in the middle of boils and being SOL.

Damn. Damn. Gotta hate that.

I've never had that issue with rye. Well maybe the very first time we brewed an all grain batch but I think that was just because too much grain was getting under the false bottom. Haven't had an issue since.

I have that same refract. very cheap on eBay.


Zappas! Let me know if it's possible to put that jet burner on the top and the banjo or whatever on the bottom. The jet burner would be great to heat strike water.

Are you using flaked rye or whole? Flaked is much more soluble than whole and so doesn't clog as much as whole.
