Contacts.... lol ;) First time using, so I went with two drops per gallon in the boil. I am glad I got them. That Pliny shit is a BIG beer! It would've been all over the place had I not used any FermCapS.

I bought this from Cabelas. Works well. Dont use the wok. I needed a burner and this was all they had. I started brewing back in MArch. I have completed and consumed (wth help) about 20 gallons so far using this burner. I have made some additons to it though. I put a wire grate on top and a heat shield to protect the kettles thermometer. I had to add the grate because the pot kept tilting. Dont want to pour hot wort all over me. Almost happened twice.



Grate
:

My Belgian Tripel, a little active. I used two strains of yeast on this one. It is still conditioning so not sure how it will turn out. Link to video:
">
I also have two different Lambics fermenting. Cherry and Raspberry.

I have started down the all grain path. Will probably not look back. I bought the coolers from Home Depot and the other gadgets from Northern Brewer. NB is charging too much for the coolers.

The setup:

What burner do you guys use? Any advice?

all grain

Did my 3rd all grain batch on Saturday with my cousin and buddy watching. Of course I had a stuck mash, never happened before. What a mess. Brewed Bee creeks haus pale ale on brewtalk, looking good. Subbed some 50-60l crystal malt and added chinook for aroma. Bubbling away nicely., Using the same home depot cooler for my mashtun setup. Good times.

I have yet to stick a mash.... sounds crappy. Just the thought of not ending up with beer, sends shivers down my spine!!!!

Anyone ever do a cider?
Just kegged and sweetened my first. Talk about easy, and talk about tasty!!! Took me 15min to throw in the ale pail. Two weeks later I add some other junk and keg. So, so easy!

cider

done 4 batches now of cider, and not having a keg makes carbonation with residual sugar hard. Every yeast I try eats all the sugar giving a very carbonated dry apple wine. Flavor is good, but no sweetness. Tried adding apple juice to sweeten, used too much, and have a serious dry apple wine. Oh well, I like it, but girlfriend not so much.

That stuck mash just meant I had to drain the mash tun, unclog the filter and pour it back. Lots of cleaning, but works in the end. Turned out ok, just moved to secondary to get off of yeast cake.

All is well that ends well I guess.

From what I have read for bottle conditioning cider:

Back sweeten to taste.
Bottle. One bottle should be a plastic soda bottle.
When soda bottle is hard, stove top pasteurise all others.
Now its all carbed, sweet and the yeast are dead.


Not to be a bummer, but my good buddy zoid, fellow ADVhomebrewer, hit a deer last night on his way home from work. He is in the ICU with severe concussion and lots of other stuff. I ask all of you to raise a glass of your finest on thanksgiving for him. I can't express how great of a guy he is, and all of us here in Nebraska are praying for a quick and full recovery.

Ick, no shit! If you talk to him let him know he's got folks pulling for him.



That's the only picture I could find of him but he's the dude with the ponytail and his back to the camera. Great guy!

Buying a kegging setup was worth just for cider alone. Like you said, 2 weeks and you have tasty, sweet, carbonated cider.

I just finished a keg of pumpkin spice ale so I have room in the kegerator now for a cider I have sitting in secondary that I plan to dry hop.

Two batches this weekend.

Friday was a Red Ale extract kit modified with Pumpkin Pie Spice. Had planned to this one about a month ago.
Saturday was my first Partial mash Speckled Heifer from NB. I can definitely see All Grain in my future.

That is kewl. I only have 3 batches under my belt. I did a little recipe modification by adding some dextrose and the pumpkin pie spice to the red ale. But it was info. that I read else where. I will get there eventually.
