I have the Danish yeast on the way, but wonder if any of you have a good recipe (all grain)?

Even when making a braggot you want to use some hops. A braggot should be a good base beer to which you add honey to get the added sugars and the honey character. 1 oz of fuggles in 10 gallons would probably work well for a wee heavy braggot. Maybe 8 to 10 IBU's. My homebrew club brewed approx 55 gallons of braggot and fermented it in a used bourbon barrel a few years ago. We are planning on brewing another batch this Saturday. It's a malty brown ale of about 1.060 OG with enough honey added to get the braggot OG up to about 1.120.

I found them in an old Northern Brewer catalog, or at least ones that looked just like them. The 100k btu burner was item numbers 7365 and $39.50. They also carried a 300k BTU burner that would be just the ticket for a 175L batch. They don't show up in the new catalog at all, but you might try calling them 800-681-2739. There might be one or two hanging out in the warehouse. I can scan and send you the page if you'd like. BTW, I just bought a hurricane burner from them and I like it a whole lot more than the cajun cooker variety. Quieter for sure and it seems to be more efficient. > On a brighter note, Grainger sells a really nifty 1/2-in.

The spec page shows the temp range to 275F. Did I miss a spec somewhere? 120C = 250F. Dennis Lewis Warren, OH Return to table of contents
Date: Thu, 15 May 2008 12:49:08 -0700 From: "Mike Sharp" <rdcpro at hotmail.com> Subject: RE: SolarFlo Jets Harlan Bauer asks about Solarflo Jet Burner Sources "Does anyone know of a source for the full line of Solarflo jet burners? http://www.solarflo.com/impinged.htm" http://morebeer.com/ sells them, but not their full line. They may be able to order them for you. I was wondering the same thing about turndown ratio a while back, and came to the conclusion that it was better to modify/make a manifold to shut off some of the jets, rather than turn them down. FWIW, a local fellow uses them in 90 gallon batches, but AFAIK, doesn't seem to need to turn it down. He builds custom brewing equipment, and could possibly order them too. You can reach him through Larry's Brewing in Kent, WA. His name is Terry. He makes the nicest conicals you'll ever see. Regards, Mike Sharp Kent, Washington Return to table of contents
