« on: March 27, 2016, 07:13:04 AM »

Nice setup. So what styles do you like to brew best? I'm assuming many (or all) are Belgian styles, just curious.

Cool. Same here. The oud bruin sounds great.

Wow. For a basement brewery that is an extraordinarily cool-temp brewhaus. I like! It's often 40c+ outside when I brew in my kitchen and is a struggle to keep it below 30-35c in there. Best (most comfortable) brewing is between November and March in S. Texas.

I was dripping sweat yesterday while making a Czech Pale lager...! Two hour boil...

Killer setup.  Makes mine look like a pile of rocks, banana leaves, and a fire.

Hey, I know this guy. He's a killer brewer! Death toll has risen to 20, recently.

Sorry, Michael, will let you be from now on...

when i boil i move the bk under the hood and open the door of the basement that takes care of most of the fog butt i'm going to get a second hood and that should't hopefully keep all of the fog out. maybe i'll get some alu duct and a hole in the lid of the bk.

very nice! I just started building my electric berry as well. What are you using for elements?
 Also, that sure looks like a flow meter you have back tge. Looks just like the one I'm eyeballing. How are you liking it?
