    FTS's for the 17 gallon Chronicle.

    Has anyone done this or researched it more? Looks like a great idea. Just wondering if it might become a bit of a novelty after a while? All I would need is the flow meters, boards and maybe a inductive charger/stand. Probably looking at about $500 to set up. Im getting a...

    Bought a Kamado Joe a few weeks ago. My god, I'm 33 years old and never knew what a real BBQ was. Going to slow cook some marinated sticky beef ribs tomorrow for 6 hours. Matching it with a nice malty Dunkel that's coming into its prime. Here's to good times :)

    Bad advice, yes? No?

    My brother has recently got into brewing, so, he has basically gone straight to all grain. I've been helping him along the way. He wanted to brew a lager straight up. He has all the equipment so I gave him a good recipe. One that I've brewed many times before. He went to buy some yeast and was...
