This is a great thread. I thought I knew all I needed to know about starters. I've even printed a couple of posts for future reference. Thanks S.C!

My first kettle was a keggle (that was long before keg theft was a problem). I used my keggle for exactly five batches before giving it away. I would quit brewing before going back to using a keggle.
I just finished helping judge the homebrew section of the Fresh Hop Ale Fest here in Yakima. the most common flaw my table saw? Too much crystal malt.Out of curiosity, how did you determine it was specifically too much Crystal vs underattenuation or some other fault? I'm still not sold on "too much Crystal malt" being a glaring flaw on its own. Otherwise Celebration would be undrinkable from what I understand.
I learned a lot. It was a great experience. I am even more jazzed to get certified.
... and cooler.
As I brew in my garage for all the neighbors to see, I can relate. I get a lot of stares and I attribute part of it to the fact that it's a hacked together system with a beer keg and whole lot of copper. "Must be making liquor or meth." A proper kettle adds some legitimacy to the operation.
What is it about your keggles that is making you want to change?
