I am on my last cycle of nights. I do 12 hour shifts; 3 days on 3 days off holidays and all. With the commute its about 14-15 hour day. Switch between nights and days every 2 months. I never really get adjusted, its pretty hard on the body.

Yeah, I try and enter a few each year and then a couple of local ones. I enter the big AHA competition and out of 4 years, this year is the first time I didn't place in the first round. I might have made it, but I entered a sour beer in the wrong category ... more »

Yeah, I use a HERMS setup as well and step mash. I honestly can't ever tell a difference though. Have tried entering competitions? Its fun and nice to get actual feedback. Friends never give good feedback you can use.

Gotcha. Have you thought about making a manifold out of copper? It would withstand the heat better. I have the same problem with mashtun size. I am going to brew up an Oskar Blues Ten Fiddy clone soon that might be pushing it. Can you get a bigger cooler? ... more »

I started out with Mr. Beer, they were okay, but you couldn't get a good one following their timeline. Eventually I started adding steeping grains and different yeast to Mr. Beer recipes and actually made some good ones. Then I switched to 5 gallon all-grain ... more »

That's crazy!!! I am with you, I hope they all stay healthy. It's still early, but I thought Tomac would runaway with this title. I am also a KTM fanboy, so it's awesome to see Bagget and Musquin doing very well!!!
