Equipment and Software / Going Fermometer?
« on: December 18, 2012, 10:03:09 AM »
I have just recently discovered the concept of Fermometers for your fermentation bucket or carboy. Is there anyone out there that has used these before and if so are they worth a try?

Is there any advantage over a stainless steele wort chiller opposed to the trusty ol copper?

Honestly, I haven't seen a kit with a wort chiller. I bought my kit, a turkey fryer (with 7.5 gal pot) and a wort chiller before my first batch. I have been using the 7.5 gallon pot even all grain. I plan on upgrading to 15gal eventually, but 7.5 is great for full boil extract batches, and is only a bit small for all grain.

I found one kit with a wort chiller in it, the kit upgrade #3 might be where i'm going to start.

i think the only difference between the deluxe or beginner sets may just be the type of equipment available. Alot of the beginner sets I see don't have any of the wort chillers in them or even a brew pot, so i guess my real concern regarding the different systems would be how relevant some of this equipment really is to getting started. Trying to find what sets can bring a quality brew for the best cost. I would probably lean more toward BB carboys if given the option either way.

thanks for the help, I'm stationed in Camp Pendelton so if my research is correct the closest home brew supply is near San Diego for me. does anyone know the difference between better bottle carboys and plain ol' glass carboys?

I have recently joined the AHA and decided to begin home brewing after I get back from a deployment in Afghanistan, and wanted to know if there is any advice the home brewers here can give on a good site to find a quality intermediate home brew system to start out with? I have been reading "A complete joy of home brewing 3rd edition" and multiple other books on brewing so i have confidence to start with a more advanced system than the ones that are slated for beginners. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
