I listened to this last night Denny. I thought you and Gordon were gonna duke it out there for minute. It's good to hear such opposing views on step mashing from such well respected homebrewers.

A while back I posted about donating some of my beer for a charity auction at work. Well I decided to go for it and my colleague helped me make a "brew basket" with a six pack (2 Oatmeal Stouts, 2 JubelAle clones and 2 CaliCommons) a bag of Rolled Gold, can of beer nuts, 2 nice Pilsner glasses, a jar of Stout Dijon and some beer pads and stickers from local brewpubs; that and a bomber of each of the beers mentioned. They went nuts for the stuff! Pulled in $347 from all combined. I'm a little nervous to hand out bombers that folks shelled out $30 bucks for! We ended up raising $5277 in a little over an hour that we donate 100% to three different local charities that we select every year. Felt good.
There may be some exceptions, but pretty much no. Among other reasons because I don't think you can get a Federal license for residential zoned space. Perhaps if you lived on a farm or had dual-zoned property.
Oh that made me smile. We've all been there (and some still visit) at some point man. Way to work through it! Next batch will go better and you'll experience new 'learning moments'. I wonder what mine will be before every batch.
So... besides AirGas, where do y'all take your CO2 tanks to get filled cheaply?I go to Central Welding, but they are limited to the Puget Sound area.
So I was looking to pick up a shirron plate chiller for around a 100 bucks does anyone has experience with them? Are they worth the investment?
I currently have a homemade counterflow wort chiller but it's big and clunky and I want to upgrade.
I've added half a stick to the boil around 20-30m for stouts...
