I mostly use Maris Otter and love it. I just did some Belgians with Weyerman pale and really can't complain about that malt either!

What are people's experience with using 10 gallon Rubbermaid water coolers? What is the maximun capacity for those coolers? I have figured that about 24lb of grain with a ratio of 1.33 qt/lb is about the max, but some discussion I have read seem to indicate that more can be used (with a lower water to grain ratio, I would assume). I've never maxed it out, but I plan on doing so soon.
I brewed a Black IPA a few weeks ago. It turned out great. As suggested by my wife we're calling "Darker Shade of Pale", with a nod to Procol Harum.
Nice system! I'm just doing a gravity fed system but it is much easier now that I built a brew stand instead of stacking things up in a precarious balancing act as I used to.
