How is the AG brewing going after 2 months?
My AG setup is as ghetto as it gets. I converted an existing cooler into a mash tun. Simply bought a vinyl hose, SS braid, clamps and a tee. I squeezed the vinyl hose through the cooler's water drain, attached it to the tee and attached the braid to the tee. To stop the wort flow, I simply raise the hose and clamp it to the cooler's handle. I use the tail gate of my truck as my brew stand. I only have one brew pot so I have to juggle a bucket to hold hot water. I keep the turkey fryer away from the truck and carry the pot/bucket back and forth.
With 2 AG batches under my belt and a third coming up, I may start to invest in the system. Would like to get another brew pot and build some kind of stand.
As for the beer, it has certainly improved in flavor. I am not going to bash extract brewing because I do believe you can brew excellent beers with extract ingredients but in my case, I believe my beer did improve with the process change.
As for going to AG as a whole, it has given me a greater appreciation for the hobby. It's something I wish I had done sooner. It really isn't that much more difficult than extract brewing.
