40 gallons in 30 hours = 1 1/3 gallons per hour.  Nice  ;)

Kegging an Imperial Stout and I was planning on making a Munich Dunkel, but I didn't make a starter.  Now I am undecided and I really want to use my new Thermapen :-\

I've used both and I've never tasted any difference.  It is just personal preference.  Buckets - Pros> easy to clean, carry, and won't break as easy  Cons> can't see fermenation activity without taking lid off, can scratch easy.   Glass carboy - Pros> you can see fermentation activity, look cool, don't scratch easy  Cons> harder to clean, carry, and can break and slice flesh.

I just ordered one(thermapen) because my last decent working thermometer is acting up and now I have four thermometers that all give different readings.

Very nice!  It's great to see that your venture is working out well.

I would use more hops.  If you plan on aging this beer, then the hop character can fade over time.

Thanks for the recipe. I always wanted to try and make some Beer Cheese Soup.

There's a Granite City near me and I'll say I wasn't impressed with their beer.  I shant go back there again.

I'm going to brew the IPA that I was supposed to brew last weekend with WY 1098.  Should I mash at a high temperature so it's not too dry?

I really liked the Brew and View place in Asheville with the huge ape on top of the building.  I'm not sure if it's still open.

Look at Denny's site.  You can get into all grain brewing without a huge investment in equipment.

Since I just realized that I have Monday off, I might make my IPA with WY 1098.

i wouldn't recommend it for use as a kettle but an hlt would be perfect.  while your brother in law is welding a patch over the bung hole, he can weld in a full couple toward the bottom for a pick up and ball valve.
I was thinking along those same lines, and he can probably weld a couple of handles on as well.

I'd recommend taking it out and having a plate welded over the hole.

But if I as going to use it as is, I would use it for the HLT only.  Less messy.
Thanks, this is what I thought.  I got a brother-in-law who welds and could probably do this.
