    I'll thumb through my Zymurgy's, but I sure don't remember seeing that article. I dropped my BYO sub. I just didn't care for it anymore.
    Yes, I'm in the same boat with our Colorado weather and brewing outside. I much prefer brewing indoors, and I do have a dedicated 240.

    Thanks @Ozarks Mountain Brew! That's perfect.

    Glad I posted about possibly going this route as I had zero knowledge of the magnetic deal.

    Megapot 11 gallon. And a cheap flimsy single-layer stainless 5-gallon. Both work wonderfully on the induction rig.

    I little chilly out and a very slow sparge due to partially stuck. So it was time to get this baby to a boil fast. The ole Blichmann stepped up and we went from 130 (f) to boiling in 15 minutes!

    Got some boil- and hot-break-porn for you. My first attempt at making a Yuengling clone.

    I'm running my induction cooktop at 2800 watts. That c-clamp apparatus is my measuring stick. This was a simple single infusion but it sure made a pretty wort!

    Simple Homegrown Centennial 1 oz @60,@40,@20, @0 min. Trying to come up with a regular house brew to have on tap all the time and use up the HG Centennial for freezer room.

    I love Centennial, but have always found beers brewed with them exclusively to have a certain sweetness that I don't care for. Not cloying, just something that seems to need a little bit of a bite. A small bittering addition of Chinook, CTZ, or even Magnum seems to cut through that for me. Have you had a similar experience?

    Our HG are light on IBU so I keep the chloride/sulfate ratio on the bitter side and mash around 149. This batch was different though as I mashed in at 130 and slowly ramped up to 156 over 1 hours time with rims. Never noticed a sweetness before. But this batch some how came out with a 89% brewhouse efficiently. I normally run in 70 to 75% area. WTF went on there I have no Idea, but it should be all good.

    Wow! Take it when you can get it :)
    Likely the ramp through the peak range of both Beta and Alpha. No compromise with a ramp in that range.

    I have played with temps before but never just took the easy street and slow ramped in that manner. Maybe another lesson in the school of keep it simple stupid!
