I'm elated to escape the Z for only a few hundred dollars in ancillary purchases, but I still am happy with the smaller batch sizes for most batches ...

 

I like being able to brew different stuff, and even 3 gallons is kind of too much, here. No other consumers for the most part though ...

 


Love a slightly salty sour with that salt warmness.

Yeah. I've done mostly 2.5 this past year. For similar reasons. Want to try things out then note what I would change for the future. Plus experimentation is fun.

The good thing is that if I do get one of those controllers, I can use it for a long time.

Yes, a 240 element at like 5500 is enough for most-any batch any of us would ever make ...

I'm using a pair of 120 devices, because it breaks down so
simply ... one on a controller for the mash, two full out for the boil ...

This week I'll use the Paragon burner under-pot, and the Hot Shot added for the boil ...

Later I'll use a pair of triclover-mounted 1650's and relinquish the Paragon from duty, I imagine ...

Yeah waiting for the boil on the 5 gal batches tries my patience.

I've been pent up for so long in this regard, I'm going to make a huge f**king beer, lol ...

Have the 21 gal with the giant 17" false bottom ...

Going to make a huge MO mash and brew Correhuela finally ...

I should be able to do a 6 gal batch to split w/ stuff I have already, too - which will be nice ...

I need to buy fitted BIAB bags, but that's about it ...

Most interested in brewing the NE-style batches right now, truth be told ... still.

 

Lost 6 oz primo hoppage in the failed Z batch ... for shame (on them).
