It can be done easily with the right equipment - namely, a champagne corker like this one:

I have one but my LHBS rents theirs out for $10 a day.

Also, those bottles will take the Euro 29mm bottle caps but you need the larger bell for yor bottle capper, about $10.

Thanks everyone. The system is really satisfying to brew on. No new adition to the house, just part of the finished basement. We have raised flooring in the basement so that made gettting the floor drain in easier. The rack behind the system is "Gridwall" I think? I have the same one behind the sink.

I don't cut or rivet SS so I made my hopper from particle board.

Mash Tun during sparge (with Morebeer sparge arm - not needed or necessary but very cool)

The Controller (it can launch missles when not brewing)



The Sink



The brewery "Guardian"



The Fermenters



Storage



The Brewery facing West



The Brewery facing East



The Grain Mill with the new hopper (outside on the patio)

Mexican Lager (aka Nego Modelo) / Biere de Garde

Same mash and boil, 2 different beers. The Biere de Garde will get an addition of sugar to bump up the gravity a bit.

For 10 gallons:

2 lbs Caramunich 60
3 lbs flaked maize
3 lbs Munich malt
11 lbs Vienna malt
+ 1 lb sugar (turbinado) for the Biere de Garde

1oz Magnum (14% AA) for 75 minutes

Yeast:
WLP Mexican Lager for half, Saflager s-23 and Belle Saison for other hal f(ferment at 60 degrees)

I brewed the beer this past weekend. The gravity turned out great. It is fermenting away right now. I only needed 23 lbs of base malt due to my efficiency. The color was not as dark as I expected coming out of the mash and since I wasn't using the dark sugar I crushed 2 oz of Blackprinz malt and added it to the top of the grain bed before sparging. That did the trick.

I will be adding regular sugar to the fermenting beer in a few days.

Thanks. I was looking for it on the recipe site but did not see it. I don't think I will go with the dark candi sugar though. Plain sugar looks like it will work just fine and will help me adjust gravity in the boil.

So a mash-tun is not key to brewing but a boil kettle is?

$14  >:(

That is ridiculous. A 45% increase in price over last year. What do we get for that increase?
