I use a  58qt rectangular cooler and I've done many 5 gallon batches getting 75-80% efficiency and pretty good clarity. I've even made Pilsners that were fairly clear into the primary with my set-up. As long as your making beers in the 1.040ish and up, you should have good results with a 70 quart extreme.

Wish I could help you. I've never been there but would love to have an opportunity to go. Good Luck.

I currently use a rectangular cooler and it's easier to dough-in with my mash paddle as I can break up the dough balls against the flat wall.

Hey guys.  It's been a while since I've chimed in, so I thought I'd post some photos of what I was up to in the kitchen yesterday.

Potato sopes with goat cheese, salsa verde, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime

Puerco verde tacos with homemade tortillas, refried beans with crumbled cotija cheese, and a vienna lager to wash it down

Looks and sounds tasty. I haven't tried these yet. Looks like a nice appetizer.

I like most of their beers. I really like Hop Devil. I am going to the brewpub tomorrow to meet up with my guitar player. He hosts an open jam on Monday nights. Anyway, I am planning to try some of their beers on tap. I wonder how the averall quality will differ from their bottled beer.

I just tried this beer for the first time today and it was good. The Noble German hop flavor is pretty good, but I think it's missing that spicy element that is typically found in that particular variety. I give it a "real nice try" and enjoyed it but not a "German" Pils by any means.

Check out this fine East Coast band out of Athens, Georgia. It's considered Southern Country and Alt-country with a "three axe attack".

The Drive By Truckers

Other than that just want the Bells coming back East this time around.

Me 2.

I can't get it locally. I actually got to try this fine IPA in North Carolina. I want to try their Brown Porter the next time I get a chance. It won Gold in the 2008 GABF.

Nugget Nectar is a very good beer.  Pretty well balanced at >90IBU. ;D


A very good EC beer. Imperial Amber seasonally brewed between January and March.

We working on the brew stand sat. bluesman? I think we have to grind down some of the twelve inchers to fit them in. Because we didnt completely follow the instruction there has been enough weld distortion to make them to tight. The frame is all pretty damn square and all, just a little arch in the horizontal members on the top.

Could be all welded up this weekend. Any luck with the punched plates for the casters?


No problem. I'm ready when you are.  8)

Where we headin' for lunch this time Chef Capp?

I like Stone IPA just as much as I like DFH 60. I am an IPA kinda guy. Lots of hops and the fresher the better.

I am also a fan of more balance than the standard in my IPA's, more mouthfeel, some crystal malt. I think the yeast is a big player as well. But the hops are the showcase hands down.
