Hello Nevada Brewers!

I am a nomad brewers passing by Las Vegas.  I love to brew on the road, but I found that carrying my full all-grain rig with me to be overkill.  This is good news for anyone looking to get into all-grain since I am selling this part of my system at a great this count.  I have these two:

Grain Gobble grain mill:

10-gal. cooler mash tun with thermometer:

You can have both for $100.  Anyone interested?  I should be at the next SNAFU meeting, we could do the gear exchange there.

I converted my old chest freezer from a fermentation chamber into a keezer.

I bought several.  Grin Grin

I use them in my serving kegs, as well as in my pressurized sanke fermentor. With the optional filter screen, I have no trouble with hops or trub.

Wine generally tastes good, some beers and some real https://www.nacaanet.org/follixin-review-results results with Follixin (alcoholic) ciders but I'll rarely have more than a glass

Just one glass?

I have a Mini-fridge that's been gutted to fit a carboy that needs to go.  Has worked well for years now, no reason it won't keep working for you.

First taker gets it.

I picked up a Tilt Digital Hydrometer several weeks ago, and have been evaluating it.

The Tilt is a BluetoothLE device that uses an accelerometer in order to determine the SG of a liquid. The Tilt is weighted such that it tilts at a pre-defined angle in water. The accelerometer measures this tilt, and converts it into an SG reading which is broadcast every 10 seconds or so via iBeacon advertisement. There are Android and iOS apps that read and display these readings. A digital thermometer is also present in the Tilt, and a temp reading is also broadcast with the SG.

You use the Tilt by sanitizing it, and dropping it directly into your carboy/brew bucket/conical/whatever and placing your Android/iOS device nearby. The apps have the ability to send the data into the cloud.

I didn't have any BluetoothLE-enabled devices with which to take readings, so I set about configuring a RaspberryPi 3 to read, save and display the results. Here is the latest test with an IPA I helped a friend make:

It seems to work pretty well, but a $200 a pop, it may be beyond the means of many homebrewers.
