As far as a brew kettle, I would look at these from Ontario Beer Kegs: http://www.ontariobeerkegs.com/Nine_Gallon_Two_Weld_Brew_Pot_p/9gallon-2weld.htm If you will ever want to move up to 10gal batches, go for the 15 gal pot. They come with 2 ports already welded in, and for about $15 each you can a...

You can pick up a refractometer fairly cheap on ebay these days. It will take a much smaller sample to get a reading (just needs a few drops). I would have suggested going with one of the magnotta kits. They make a west coast IPA, but it is only available during a few months of the year, so not sure...

Might have to do some experiments :)

I have always thought that it would be awesome for Grand River, Wellington, and F&M to get together and run some tents or a hall somewhere. Brew some real german style beers, and some good entertainment, for those of us who would rather not go to the glorified university party they call octoberf...

you guys haven't tried Pannepot. IMO, one of the best strong ales out there. smooth as hell.
Dulle Teve has a very strong pear hit to it. unique and brilliant beer.
Fantome is in a class of its own.


The Pannepot Grand Reserva is still one of my all time favourites. Wish I had bought more.

And would that allow said store to order products that are not listed by...
