I'm curious about the hop addition. Anyone else do this?As am I. Maybe it is me but 1/2 oz for a 1 gallon batch (assuming no blending) seems like a lot...

Why not build it out of wood? Wood is much easier to work with and is cheaper than welding a steel one. I have a 3-tier wooden gravity fed system, it works great.I did the same thing. Although mine is technically a 2-tier since my burner is seperate. I made mine out of 4x4's and notch cut for the 2x4 cross members. It is solid. The one down side is it is more flamable than metal
I wouldn't do anything for another 2-3 weeks.I agree with Denny and Morti. Let it be for at least 2 weeks.
They do peel off okay if you're looking to then submit a couple of bottles to competition.Thanks! That's was my reasoning.
I use Avery round colored labels on the caps. I have the label template saved on my computer and I print the name of the beer on the labels. One color per batch. Makes them easy to identify at a glance.This is a great idea. Do these labels peel off easily?
My wife typically brews with me and cleans along my side. Stuff is typically very cleanI got to convince my wife to do that.

That's awesome. I have often wondered about using sap as brewing liquour. probably cheaper to if you have access to the sap. 10 gallons of sap should be pretty inexpensive yeah?It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup. So, it is actually pretty cheap. I have a friend who runs a sugar shack so I just pay him with beer.
