Brew Pot Mod.

I've heard many times that the two most important things in brewing are consistency and sanitization.  In the spirit of the latter I've modified my brew pot.  Previously, the lid of my brew pot sat askew in order to accommodate my immersion chiller.

Well, no more my friends, no more.

With a little work in my company's machine shop (band-saw and some files, followed by Emory cloth) I've got a perfect fit for the brew pot lid with my immersion chiller.
This should help to keep any "nasties" out of the brew during chilling.

Berks County Homebrew Club

The Berks County Homebrew Club had its first meeting on Tuesday, January 12th 2010 at Canal St. Pub.  A club, "dedicated to the world of home brewing," drew a crowd of more than a dozen local home brewers and beer lovers.
After seeing the label designs of School Master Brewing Co. the group asked for a logo design.  Happy to help, the above pictured logo was created and approved as the group's official graphic.  
You can find out more about the Berks County Homebrew Club by emailing berkshomebrew@gmail.com or following them on Facebook; name Berks Homebrew.
