Bump for the new year. Just put 5 gallons of Apfelwein in a primary. The hard part of course is the waiting

I just found this thread I can't believe the set up some of you guys are rocking! I'm still in the single fermentation, extract kit level of brewing but I just got a couple more carboys and am planning on expanding the operation.

Excellent

There are quite a few home brewers and at least one pro on ADV.

I envy your cask conditioning equipment ... of course I have a long way to go before my brews will be worthy of a firkin

As the OP, that's fine by me. Might get more play there

Ooooh. Why'd it take so long for me to find this thread? Bottling a rauchbier this weekend. Not a huge fan, though, I have to say.

A quick trip to the home despot and I'm now getting ready to build a heat stick for my setup. Being as I don't have much in the way of $'s I have to improvize.

Will be building one of these over the holidays

Is that just in conjunction with the burner to bring on a faster boil?

I'm going to be doing it in conjunction with the burner. We have a ceramic hob which is hopeless at doing a full boil. Depending on how good it works I may convert a turkey fryer pot to a full electric kettle and then use the heat stick to keep the mash to temperature.

I'm still learning about all grain so if any of it makes no sense ... put it down to my newness.

That might be tough without a thermistor or some sort of fine adjustment. I looked into DIY-ing one of these, and found that it was cost-prohibitive. Let us know how this works.

I bottled my pale ale earlier this week. Looking forward to it.

As for all-grain, the brewmaster that showed me my first batch used 15 gal beer kegs with the tops cut out. I just purchased a pair.
