10 gal igloo works good and holds more grain than a 5 gal bucket

I will use a wireless from time to time but a good cable at limited length always sounds best

I know squat about all the technical guitar talk.  But I DO know this-  Albert Collins always sounded great on his very, very long cable playing out in the middle of the street all the while plugged back into the bar.  Man I miss that

I just noticed the Google search page is acknowledging the discovery of water on the moon today

Unfortunately, I don't remember much of my experiments. My gin drinking days are very hazy and I rarely touch the stuff anymore.

I've noticed, over the years, that many gin drinkers have that issue.  I may be jaded as my Dad was (is) an "alchoholic" that drank nearly a fifth of Gin in his martinis every night for many years.  He quit about 30 years ago thank goodness.  I think he was the classic businessman of his time.  3 martini lunches and the whole bit.  Very successful too.  He was a mellow drunk.  He'd just get hammered then stumble in to bed.

Anyway, as the years have passed I've definitely noticed that gin drinkers (the real ones) are their own breed.  Sorry for the hijack- now back to your discussion.

Questions about the forum? / Re: Where are you from?

Cool.  I came here to ask the same question.  It's cool to see where people are from and get their regional perspective.  This is especially true for international members.  Also, it's cool to let people know I'm from Boring, OR

Nic- I think you're gonna be very happy w/ your MO purchase.  I love bitters and ESBs.  I've strayed from MO and tried Simpson's GP and I was disappointed.  I gotta brew me up an ESB this weekend now   ;D

I loves me some Knob Creek.

For lower $$ stuff, I go with Early Times.  Pretty cheap and tastes decent to me

Don't give up so quickly.  When I first read it I thought...  Wow, you could move that thing up & down in the pot and almost touch every drop of wort???

Ok, now it's somewhat interesting.  I'm envisioning some mechanical thingy moving the "Weezecoil" up and down to chill.  Like an eccentric gear or a very slow sawzall contraption.  I bet you'd get some efficient cooling that way.

Get to work Weeze   ???

I like Austin, I think their shipping costs are pretty good. It used to be 6.99 no matter how big your order was? I'm not sure if it's still like that or not. Sadly, I haven't ordered anything for a while.

About 2 weeks ago, I got a 25 gal megapot delivered from them for $6.99 shipping.  Great deal for a heavy item

I'm not feelin it Weez.  Wouldn't your design make it so you couldn't stir the pot?  Oh wait, you can still stir the pot here I guess    ;)

Denny- I'm guessing your wife doesn't drink anything like my wife does

I normally do overlapping 10 gal batches (20 gal total).  I use 2 burners and and extra pot, but only 1 mash tun.  I've found that overnight mashing the second mash is the most time efficient method for me.  Like you, my wife and I like to hit the kegs.  We also have younger children so I try to get as much beer for my brewing time so we can have family time.

I'm currently assembling a 20 gal setup while keeping the 10 gal system in tact.  That way I can brew 30 gal at once if I want to.
