As long as it didn't contain toxic resins or oils in a previous life, you should be OK.

Just because you're using distilled water doesn't mean you'll have low mineral content.


Do you mean after the addition of the extract, or before the addition?

In the future, when you find the need for a larger tun, skip those water cooler styles & go to a tun like Denny's.
(Big, blue rectangular cooler)
I have a pair of 10 gallon water cooler tuns & wish I had gone with rectangular ones, instead.

Is that time-and-a-half, or double-time?

Can we please throw more abbreviations into our posts?
I currently understand way too much of what everyone is saying.

I was hearing on a news outlet that one of the miners has been doing this job for 3 decades & has been trapped underground on at least 3 occasions...
Wouldn't you start looking for different work?
Hell...I'd consider just about any other option, after the first cave-in.

Add calcium, sulfate & chloride.
You've nearly got a good pilsner water.
Make sure to keep that magnesium down where it is.

Try to keep a nice balance between the sulfate & chloride.

Install a really big handle & turn it into a giant mug.  ;)

Seriously, though...
Keggle, dude!
It's the cheapest boil kettle you will ever gain access to.
Fifteen gallons ain't that big.
I build 10 gallons of water, every time I brew.
My 15 gallon kettle is perfect, for that.
I almost never have to worry about boil-overs, but it has come close.

Many people use them & they work.
Just be sure that you are either outside or have some form of venting (water heaters typically have a chimney).
I'd recommend electric heater elements, over gas.

My wife & I cook great meals, but I gotta tell you...
Fritos Scoops & a big bowl of chili & sour cream is darn tempting.
Using only whole foods & restricting preservatives/coloring agents just isn't for me.
I'll eat nearly any type of food you set in front of me.
Ever watch Andrew Zimmern?
I'm pretty close to one of those kind of guys.

My wife has some friends that complain about nearly everything you could serve...
Tomatoes, beans, cabbage...Whatever...
I honestly HATE eating around people like that.
They make my meal less enjoyable, by just being there.

That's excellent!
How did you hook up with The Nook, for your debut?

Equipment and Software / Re: Building a Jockey Box
« on: October 12, 2010, 02:25:53 PM »
If you are ever too relaxed on cleaning, I don't recommend the plates.
I built a jockey box with a friend of mine.
The last time it got used, he didn't clean out the chiller plate.
There's nothing making it through those lines, ever again.

I thought stirring him in was pretty funny.
I guess I'm just sick, like that.

You have to be careful around him...
He'll pull you in to the Dark Side.
