All Grain Brewing / Re: Specific gravity issue...Dump or Keep?
« on: March 25, 2012, 08:34:26 AM »
 I am real new at this also, but my first question is "how did you check your gravity ?"  1.012 is barely above dirty water , maybe your gravity reading is "off".

All Grain Brewing / Re: My one hang-up before going all-grain...

Wooden brew stands are a lot cheaper to build than metal ones.
Yea, probably, but mine pulls apart. The part the MT sits on is sort of like a coffee table. Flip it over, set the two burner sections inside between the "table legs" and pile the other leg extensions in there. Maybe 16"X36"X22" total. Real lite and easy to carry pieces. Make the one burner section, then the MT section and build it so the same burner work for the HLT and BK. Anyhow, seems real easy to store. Removable leg extensions.

A million choices

Well I just did my first brew, and only days before that finished my brewstand. I guess I put mine together using a modular approach and it need not be "expensive". Of course expensive is different for all of us. Thing that helped me is a friend is a welder, so find a friend that welds or make friends with a welder. Here is a link to my story. I have around $100 into metal + some dollars for burners and regs. Go too Agri supply for burners and regs. That stuff is cover all over out there.

This all comes apart. Probably could of gone with one burner that moves from the top to the bottom. The shelf for the MT could of been smaller for a round MT. The important thing for me was to get the heights all right so there was very little lifting. The bottom burner will stand alone on the ground as will the top when removed.

Snow ! Go south for the winter, maybe a couple of easy ups and tarps.
