All Grain Brewing / Step Mashing? Important?
« on: November 19, 2012, 05:07:11 PM »
So I am building my system and have a question.

Step Mashing?  Is it important for certain type of beers or malts?  Is it not important any more since the malts used today are better than in the past.


All Grain Brewing / HERMS vs RIMS

Building an all grain system.  Already have the three kegs bought for and a friend is going to cut openings in the top. 

But I am struggling with going with either HERMS or RIMS.  I would love honest feedback.


Equipment and Software / 201 or 304 Stainless Steel
« on: September 12, 2012, 08:22:17 PM »
So I found a large stock pot that I can convert to a brew kettle since a buddy of mine can weld stainless steel.  But it is 201 stainless and not 304 like most kettles I see for sale.

Is there a big difference?  I know price to buy is about half. 


Equipment and Software / Oh no! All grain!?!?
« on: September 11, 2012, 11:15:03 PM »
Yes I have the bug!  I want to go all grain but with so many different set-ups I am confused.

Pots or Keggles?
March or Chuggar pumps?

What misc. piece of equipment did you wish you had when you first went all grain but didn't know about till later?

Any help is appreciated!
