Welcome back and belated greetings to tacticalspud. I’m sorry that I skipped over your nice post :idiot: I like your thinking about naming a batch “Night Shift.” I made an Old Ale that was bland at the end of fermentation, so I added some stone fruit and gave it some more time before bottling. Name?...

Welcome, Big Fat Sack. Nice first post :clap: A 10 gallon kettle is good. Beware of the temptation to apply you work skills to your equipment - simple is good, too.

Hello, Phil. Brewing + retirement is a great combination. Your experience will help get to good beer sooner than others just starting out. I have read that today’s malts are highly modified and that means that the step mashes of last century are no longer necessary. Give your old bucket a good washi...

Welcome to the forum, wdorrepaal / William. Thanks for the informative first post. You started at a high level of automation and complexity.

I may have found it! Click on your (logged in) user ID in the upper right between the magnifying glass & the hamburger, select User Control Panel from the drop-down list.

Greetings, anthropas. You can start with small batches as your goal but when you purchase a kettle you should consider larger volume rather than just-big-enough. That's especially true if you want to make higher gravity (OG>1.050) beers using All Grain. As a beginner, please read Clear Brewing Termi...

Welcome, Eddy from Newcastle.Thanks for the interesting mention of your foraging ingredients for both wine and beer.. No foraging from work as a pharmacist allowed.

Greetings to djohnston97019 and Pomegranate. djohnston97019 - Efficiency improves with experience and then it waivers due to those darn variables that are beyond control. Do not get too concerned with efficiency numbers as you cannot drink them. Focus on the beer and enjoy the learning process. Pome...
