Looking forward to getting home to South Carolina in September and starting my first homebrew.
I haven’t purchased a seperate burner, I plan to use the side burner on my grill and I wonder if this will be adequate to cook 2.5 - 3 gallons at a time.
I purchased an immersion chiller, but I’ve been looking at the ChillZilla. My Bayou Classic 8-Gallon Stainless Steel Stockpot has a spigot on it and I was wondering if I could just attach the chillzilla directly to it or if it would need to be isolated by a short piece of hose. I’m thinking I’d cut off the heat, screw on the chillzilla, attach the water hoses, turn the water on and get it flowing, open the valve on the pot and let the wort flow through a hose into a primary fermentation carboy. Perhaps I could use the immersion chiller with a bucket of ice to prechill the cooling water.
