Where's the information for submitting entries?  I've poked around the site a couple of times but didn't see it.  I'm sure it's right in front of my face.

That one says 75K Btu.  You'd probably be a lot better of with the SP-10...

...that'll give you 185K Btu and it's only $39.96 with free shipping.


+1 That's what I have and it's a beast.  And you can't beat the price.

No brewing for me this weekend.  Bottling the stout I brewed two weeks ago.

I was always under the impression that a round cooler made for better lautering when fly sparging however I see from the comments above that this isn't necessarily the case, so I stand corrected.

If you were going to fly sparge a round cooler would be preferable.  But I saw your post that you picked up a 70 qt Coleman Xtreme.  That will work great for batch sparging once you get it converted.

Thanks.

I'd consider aiming for 1.045 and hitting 1.042 to be pretty successful actually.

Kai, are the projected pH values in your spreadsheet at room temperature?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Do Finely Milled Grains Retain Less Water?

OK, I just finished my sparge.  9.75 gal. in, 8.3 gal. out, 11.63 lb. of grain.  That makes it .124 gal./lb. absorption.

BTW, according to Promash, I got 96% efficiency!   ;D ???

Is that the Best Malz malt again that you posted about a while ago?

Big, big mistake happening here folks.

Why is that?  Other than the beer selection that is.

Setting aside things without which you couldn't brew at all ...

I guess I'd go with autosiphon.  I don't use it on brew day but racking would be much more of a pain in the ass without it.

And actually as one who still has yet to experience the joy of kegging I'll throw in the $2.50 bottle filler.

I did come home and have a beer - just pulled a bit of kolsch, and then after dinner I had a few fingers of bourbon .... well, more than a few fingers.

After an experience like that you deserved it.

Nothing brewing this weekend.  Instead I'll be cleaning labels off of bottles   :-\
