    my brewery rebuild attempt.

    Temperature control any brewers greatest concern!!
    This prompted me to go the whole hog all the way
    from grass roots. Gatvol with the commercial liquid.
    Them can hardly kick up a froth in a cement mixer!
    I have since embarked on a self reliant brewing
    experience. My current situation as per the attachments!

    Gosh my plans are quite simple!! I desperately need too get away from this
    commercial waste water!! I have two huge problems though that need to be
    addressed!
    1. Temperature control in the fermentation stage,.and
    2. Water hardness!!

    Getting back at one,
    wishful thinking in believing that all is in control with a brew
    in a ice bucket dressed with towels!! Forget it,..not ever in these
    climatic conditions!!

    Two, although our water seemingly great for consumption, gosh man,
    the friggen liquid so hard, just opening the faucet reminds one of a
    scrap metal dealership!! Not conducive for brewing!! Hence my other
    approach " distilled water". Although the water gets harvested from a
    well, a method rather appealing, no no no!

    The can of lion being insult to injury! 3 empty fermenters, that's sad! I did the ice bucket thing. Not cool. But the standard fridge freezer will only fit 2 fermenters.
