  1. Wouldnt it be nice if an employee from mr beer would advise on this question?
  2. Boy i tell you, this week... unexpected $800 car bill, my toilet is clogged, we got put on mandatory overtime, ITS WINTER ALL OF A SUDDEN. All these things dragging me down. But then the ups man shows up with an early xmas present from a friend and theres two beer kits in the box. Things are looking up
  3. Well, with a rims, youll need another element. Keep in mind one heat source is for the mash and then youll need one for the boil. So if you just have one induction burner, youll need another element of some kind. I think im up to date on your set up, i dont recall another heat source. If you have the whirlpool port set up then you should be good with that as your return. If youre thinking about my problems with such a temp difference in the mash and wort around my basket, my problem is that my basket has a very find mesh. Its almost like a wall in there. But stirring frequently helps youll be fine with just a biab set up and one burner. Youll just have to stir more often at worst. If youre using a brew bag then you should be covered. You dont have an element inside the kettle so you wont get scorching. id just give the new set up a few test runs and then youll know what it can and cant do.
  4. Me: look it wife, I ordered everything on this app for groceries this week. 
     

    Wife: thats cool, where at? 
     

    me: woodmans (the furthest store away with the most gigantic beer selection)

     

    wife: oh I see whats happening here

     

    me: (Smiling) what do you mean???

  5. Ive brewed quite a bit lately. 25 gallons in two weeks. But ones a lager and itll take awhile. Perhaps Ill do my old trick of a two day sour brew. I did pick up some gooseberries today for such an occasion. day 1- mash, bring up to 180, cool to 100, pitch lacto day 2 or 3- boil, cool, pitch yeast.
  6. This always reminds me of the 2018 MUG meet up
  7. Where are you getting those exotic ingredients like idaho 7 and vics secret?
  8. See, are we talking about the “tablespoon” of vanilla, or the “tablespoon” itself. Im guessing any food product sold on the shelf should be “food grade” and free of bacteria. The tablespoon itself on the other hand, i would sanitize.
  9. Id just stick it in boiling water for a minute or five. Then wait for it to cool obviously eh?
  10. Wouldnt be a trip to the LHBS without stopping for some Three Floyds!

      Just poured my second one. Nap time coming soon. Ill be back to 0.00 by the time I wake 

  11. Ritebrew has it. They dont have everything, but they had that. I had to sub liberty for mt hood for example.
  12. Ordered all the ingredients for this. Itll be the first wort my counterflow chiller sees. As soon as the conical opens up, this is going in. Its a Schells firebrick clone. I previously told @Bonsai & Brew i wasnt the biggest fan of that beer, but a guy should get through at least half of his sixer before he opens his big mouth. Im really liking the firebrick / nordeast combo. Start with a nordeast or two and then finish with a full flavored similar beer. One two punch
  13. Hope all is well my friend.  Long days and pleasant nights there Gunslinger

  14. For those following along at home, its hard as a rock... I should've saved some grains from this weeks brews for the beast balls. Damn.
