Igloo makes a 250 qt. Only $750 in their online store.
I think two 100's will do better for me.
I'd be all over that 150 if there was a SAMs club near here.
I also like the idea of two so I can do 1/2 batches and keep a decent grain bed depth
Denny. Why do you use so much water in the mash? Wouldn't the ratio be the same?
It's the same ratio, but the overall amount is much greater when you use 75 lb. of grain per batch!
I understand that you're scaling up everything accordingly but where you lost me is where you ended up as a no-sparge. I guess if you were making the same amount of 2X strength wort it would make sense but I am thinking I'd be ramping up everything else in conjunction.
It may work out like that because all I ever use it for is 10 gal. batches of 1.100 BW. I'll try to remember to pull out my notes and give you an example.
