Check this guy out - he's pretty darn cheap Brew Stands.html

Who's the guy that builds them?   ;D

Interesting question.
There is no indication where it is build and who makes it.
But they are more then willing to take your credit info!!!
By the way. they say that shipping is free.

Now let think about it.
Too good to be true?

Ingredients / Re: hops and bitterness

Lagunitas IPA, that is a prime example of a beer I truly enjoy. 

You are in luck.
Here is the recipe and technique how to make it.

Anyway, my question is how do you get good flavors out of hops with just a subtle bitterness?  Is it due to the types of hops used, or simply a result of brewing techniques like "dry hopping?"

Usually late hop additions will give you bitterness without lingering bitterness.

I bet Thirsty Monk is happy to hear the electric setup is going good!

I haven't had the time to check the rest of the forum much. But tell him that the elements we are using kick gas in the nuts!  ;D My partner is the one who set up the electric kettle so I honestly don't know much about what went into it. But I can ask him.

Yes I am very happy to hear that 2 elements can do just fine with 55 Gal.
I am planning to have 6 elements in about 180 gal BK.
I have dedicated 300 Amps 240 V transformer for the brewhouse.

I would be more then interested to know your electric set up.

By the way Congrats majorvices.

Reasonable priced.

Equipment and Software / Re: HERMS Coil

Is 20ft of 3/8th too long (volume-wise)?  What dimensions do others use for a HERMS coil?
If you just want to maintain the temp in Mash tun, 3/8 will do just fine.
If you want to raise mash temp with it, I would say that 1/2" would be a better choice.
20 feet is long enough.
It is all about how much volume you can pump in certain amount of time.
If you want raise temp fast, you also need to have appropriate heater in your HLT.

I dump it on my garden. It makes great black soil.

I liked glasses from New Holland Brewing:
Not sure what kind it is but they have 16 and 20 oz.
I had 16 oz once and I loved it.

I also have a stash of Czech beer glasses.
And because they are from thin glass they eventually break.

I agree with suggested temps.
Cal Common to start at 58F and Stout at 65F.
So answer on your question is "No you can not ferment then in the same chamber".

2112 seams to be nice yeast.
I like it.

Boy, go out of town for a couple months and you really slip in the standings, huh? 8)
I was wondering where did you go.
Glad to see you back.
