    I kegged up my edwort's Apfelwein today and here are the numbers 1.066 OG and 0.998 FG.

    After taking the gravity readings I "sampled" the Apfelwein and it reminds me of a brut champagne.
    It will be interesting to see what its like cold and carbonated!

    Hmmm.... what to brew next!

    So today while washing all of my kegs, buckets and other equipment I was reminded how much I need one of these......

    A Moen Hot/Cold hose bib!
    I installed one at the rental house I used to live at without asking to make washing cars and the dogs a lot nicer!
    I have been wanting one for a while now at this house with having a dog and boys that play in the mud.
    Sure would make washing brewing equipment outside simple!

    I'm reading up on all-grain today.

    Need a cooler, and a bigger boil kettle. Going to work on finding a keg to convert to a electric kettle.

    Just need to have a few more extract batches turn out well and then Jen may let me spend more money

    There's more of an investment for all-grain but its amazing how much cheaper the ingredients are!
    Once you get those then you'll be looking for a mill and bulk grain storage.........and so on and so on.

    Have you seen how tweaky the guys get with the electric kettles? Dang.....

    Funny, I've been searching craigslist the past few days for a keg to do the very same. Right now I have a 5 gallon ALUMINUM turkey fryer. I want steel, and I saw on homebrewtalk.com that people have converted kegs into boil kettles.

    There's a bunch of them on CL right now for <$50. I have about 3 weeks till I can brew another batch. I'm only 5 days into primary fermentation, but I'd like to have one set up for the 2nd batch.

    More like that looks like some serious $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

    At that point when its all automated doesn't it kind of take away the whole fun of brewing?

    ^^^I agree

    in related news, check out the brew stand they give free plans for on their site: http://theelectricbrewery.com/brew-stand?page=3

    I might make one of these just for a solid workbench in my garage. I like the exposed bolts.

    Also check your area and go check out your LHBS (local home brew store).

    Yeah that's a cool thread.... spent many hours in there!

    I'm still undecided if I want a "sculpture" because they just take up a bunch of space.

    also, the Nut Brown Ale has slowed down to ~1 bubble every 5 seconds, and, I am tempted to hook up that keg of stout and see how it's coming along.
