I'm glad I switched from 5 gal batches to 3 gal batches. Now I can brew on my stove!

i had a haier once, not again. the coils rotted out inside the walls, nothing you can do to fix them. it only lasted 4-5 years.Well that's not very encouraging. 5cu ft is pretty small. Fits what, 3 kegs? Probably about one fermenter unless you ferment in kegs.
I agree....I love Horizon for bittering but not so much for aroma.
StarSan makes my skin itch like mad if I expose my hands to it too much. It's certainly not pleasant to drink, in my opinion.A few years ago on the brewing network a guy from five star drank star san...Is he still alive?
If you're afraid of StarSan, you'd probably better stay away from Coca Cola.
Running new lines in the kegerator. More cleaning/organizing in the cellar. No brewing this weekend.This is one of the things I don't like about kegging. Bottling is more time consuming, but you don't have to worry about this kinda stuff. Been considering doing more bottling from the keg.
I was assuming he was doing the standard 60 minute mash.I'd mash warmer, not shorter, for more body.
it's a combination of factors. thermometer calibration is a good idea.
bay brewer didn't mention his original mash time, nor what the rest of the grist was, but a 45 min mash is reasonable.
