    The spigot on the Slimline is the best for bottling. Something that works like that would be great.

    Looks nice! I have my SMaSH Pale Ale cold crashing now. It's in a LBK with 2-row and my own Cascade.

    I like uso5 too but it's kind of like wonderbread of the yeast world. it lacks character. too clean. it is great for adding a few grams to bottles that have had an overly long fermentation and a high abv, for carbing. every now and then I splurge and get white labs, or i'll do a saison with bella saison from danstar. and speaking of monsters... wlp Edinburgh ... when I used it on a wee heavy it went positively nuts. nearly blew the lid off twice. 4 days of constant chug chug chug of foam through the air lock hose...

    My 2nd Batch using American Porter and infused with Jalapeno's. So Delicious!

    I think you should have stuck with the white spigot. It is easier to tell if it is clean. My 2 cents.

    No. We mostly focus on Mr. Beer because that is our company name. While you can buy all of these products from us individually, we have no plans on creating recipes using Coopers products at this time.

    @sabres032, I'd offer that 1.072 is a huge beer to shoot for. If it were me, I'd go for something in the 1.055-1.060 range until you figure out your efficiency. If you shoot for 75% efficiency on something that's right on the borderline between a APA and an IPA, you'll be in a good place if you end up 5% either way. Your idea of adding Carapils isn't bad if your're doing a single infusion at a relatively low mash temp, but if you ever intend to do a stepped temp mash with a dextrine rest, you'll just confuse things with that stuff. Also, if you really want to figure out mashing, a less complicated hop schedule will allow you to understand the malt profile better. If all the flavor is in big hops and bitterness, you may cover up more than you'd like. And while I think Chinook is an awesome hop, high alpha hops can get away from you (and First Wort additions may be unpredictable, too). I'd consider Cascade just because it's so steady and predictable and makes a simply classic flavor profile, but whatever you use, I'd keep it simple with at additions at 60, 20, 10, F/O or something similar. Ideally , you'd like something that's very easily duplicated so you can change one variable at a time in your mash schedule to see how things improve. Good luck!!
