i have used a large stainless tea ball in a corney.  the 1oz of hops was hard packed in the ball when i finally removed it.  if i do it again i will use 1/2oz per ball to hopefully ensure good infusion.

i did a 5 gallon extract of lemongrass wheat a few years ago from austin homebrew and it called for 1oz of dried lemongrass at flameout.  although i havent made it recently i really liked it and would make it again.

All Grain Brewing / Re: New to all grain. Need help with set up

start looking for sanke kegs, to make keggles.  a counterflow chiller is pretty easy to make and easier to purchase premade.  ball valves.  make a manifold or false bottom for a cooler.  false bottom for boil kettle is preferable.  decide if you want to use gravity or pump(s).  do some google searching for ideas

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lacto and/or Brett Pitching
« on: April 25, 2012, 09:45:52 AM »
the first berliner weisse i made turned out pretty similar.  pitched lacto first then an ale yeast after two days maybe.  aged for a few months in a sanke.  not too sour at all.  i now do a 1/3 or more sour mash for at least 36 hours and like the results and have gotten good feedback.  another brewer i talked to does half with ale yeast, half with lacto then combines the two, he also gets good feedback.

I am surprised there isn't one already.  I began brewing in SF but now live in Austin.  I still use a lot of stuff I bought from Griz.  Cheers
