Vacuum seal is where I want to go. Doing the Ziplock sealing has to go the way of the dinosaurs. Are the regular vacuum seal bags the way to go or are the mylar foil bags preferred?
A chili pod eating competition among drunken friends will most likely take place next year if anybody's interested.Interested in seeing the video, not in participating.
Somewhere out there there's a video of me eating a bhut jolokia... Questionable whether it was worth the $20. The aftermath the next day was worse than the pepper.
i really have never had any significant husk material end up in my kettle. it is hard for anything not in solution to get through the fine bag. i am going to put my stainless braid back in the igloo like before i used the bag, but this is mostly because the bag would prolapse in to the spigot and basically plug the whole operation.
FWIW, one of the reasons i like the bag in the mash is i can just lift it out and throw it in large tupperware bowl and i bake bread and dog treats over the next few days. i brew small batches so it is not too heavy. it also makes it easy to clean the tun, which i can then circulate ice water through for my chiller.
Am I the only one who shops at http://yakimavalleyhops.com ? Good prices and I usually have my hops in 2 days. Plus they take paypal.
typically 2 gallons. i put the grain in a bag, and put this in my igloo cooler. i use the electric kettle to heat 4 gallons of water (right to the brim) and what i don't use in the mash i keep in another pot or cooler if needed. then i just drain the cooler back to the kettle to target about three gallons. boil down to 2.25. ish. still working some of the kinks out.
