    Electric, Induction, Infra-Red ?

    @Cato Thanks, already thought of that. There's a basement window close by, and with a fan it should work. For now sticking with and learning All Grain. Using a 16 qt (4 Gallon) pot, which is the largest feasibly possible in kitchen. Researching possible setups for larger batches, which will require other equipment/processes. Only using Malt, Hops, Water & Yeast for beer. Goal is to brew what I call "Nectar of the Gods", and if/when that happens, larger batches will follow.

    Thanks. @Cato@Creeps McLane Walmart SS pot isn't magnetic, magnet would not stick to it. It was discovered while researching online that there is magnetic, and non-magnetic SS. Basement has a 240V 20A outlet, and also a sink. However, wouldn't pump that much water into septic system. Maybe ice water in sink, and pump & recirculate through that ?

    My basement has both 120 & 220. Previous owner of home was tool & die maker. Tons of 120 & 220 outlets in garage & basement. Not sure if my cheap SS Walmart pot is induction capable. And exactly what does induction capable mean anyway ?

    Clips for grain bag, good idea. What wattage is your induction burner ? How do you chill your wort ? Thanks
  5. Gas burner in the basement is not feasible. Is there an electric, Induction or Infra-Red burner that can be used ? Does anyone have one ? Use one ?

    DME to All grain conversion

    First time using 16qt pot with full volume boil and hop schedule. Used 2qt water for 8oz grain steep for 25 minutes. Used all the stuff I've learned online, and from you guys/gals, so much to know. Process is getting more involved, attention to details. First test batch using Nottingham yeast. Will ferment a little over 3 weeks at 59 degrees in basement. Getting ready for first all grain mid next week. Picture is citra hops awaiting their fate.

    How many types of beer mugs do you own?

    Calculating boil off rate, and grain absorption, is to end up with whole volume being brewed. What would be the benefit ? Instead of adding more water to volume before fermenting.

    Not sure yet, maybe. I may be able to do a 4-5 gallon batch with it, and add water later to volume like the Mr Beer kits. Currently I'm venturing into uncharted territory and only doing 2 gallon test batches. Testing various methods, yeasts. grains, and hops to see what works for me before rolling out to larger batches.

    Good stuff, thanks everyone. Happen to be at Walmart today and picked this up as suggested. $11.94

    Great, thanks all, good stuff. Going to slowly ease into it, but "All Grain" here I come.

    Was it just for the color ? Or, pale malt DP of 85, and 2 row malt DP of 140, averages to a diastatic power of 112. Was this taken into consideration at all ? Thanks

    Thanks. I am misunderstood with base malt , probably because I asked poorly. 99% Base Malt is listed for Briess Golden Light DME. http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Assets/PDFs/Briess_PISB_CBWGoldenLightDME.pdf Which base malt are they referring to ? Thank You

    I'll cut to the chase, How would someone do this recipe with "All Grain" https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2785/6868/t/3/assets/ZombieDirt2Gallon-1527037377775.pdf?10192803001442395523 Thanks

    Base Malts Base malts make up the majority of the grist in all-grain beer, and the variety is, frankly, astounding. Named based on the formation of corns on the barley stalk (2-row vs. 6-row), the variety (e.g., Maris Otter, Golden Promise, etc), or the region in which it was grown or malted. Includes: Barley malts: pale malt, Pilsner malt, Vienna malt, Munich malt, mild ale malt, and more Non-barley base malts like wheat malt and rye malt (more on these in "Other Malts") High-kilned malts: responsible for the dark, malty lagers of Europe and have also found a home in some ales because of their unique character. Munich and Vienna malts are the prime examples American base malt is generally mild and fairly neutral; British malts tend to be maltier, bready, and biscuit-like. The European climate gives malts made from Continental barley a clean, "elegant" character. Pilsner malt has a soft, delicate maltiness that practically defines pale lagers. "High-kilned" (heated to a higher temperature at the end of the malting process) base are rof high-kilned malts, although mild ale malt belongs to this category too. The darker color lends these malts a more toasty, malty flavor than you get from lighter base malts. https://www.jaysbrewing.com/2011/11/17/lazy-chart-for-converting-dme-lme-grain/
