comment Improving Your Brewing Significantly
I have a hard time getting over the water waste created here. In my city, dumping ~15 minutes of water flow is pretty much illegal. Any suggestions?

comment Why does my witbier stink?
I saw that one too, wasn't clear if you were talking pre or post bottling though. Still, funny how apparently everyone comes across a stank beer every so often.

Thanks Graham. I thought that might be the case, it stank like-you-read-about during fermentation. Hoping by July 4th they'll be smelling a little less "who died in here?".

comment How to prime with maple syrup?
Funny follow up here. I popped the first two bottles last night and both gushed empty in my hands. Only been in the bottle for two weeks too. Oh well, all in the name of science I suppose.

Hey Jared, Thanks for chiming in. As I said above, I already have the volume part down. The question is, how do I add it to the beer?

@CleberGoncalves It's almost a comedy, because the rabbit hole goes deeper. The faucet head in my kitchen is some ancient one-off 13/16 thread. One of the local hardware store people (who was ancient himself) called it "rare". I can't for the life of me find a suitable garden hose adapter!

(timed out editing my comment) Thanks! I would go the immersion chiller route, but there is no outside water at my apartment (the spigot is locked by mgmt). Also, I've got a nice HLT, Mash Tun, Kettle setup going - So while switching to BIAB is an option, I'm finally feeling dialed in with my gear and I really like the efficiency I'm getting. All good advice though, certainly gets me thinking.

I love the idea of all of this, but have a couple roadblocks.

I mash inside to save costs on propane mainly, in my city it's ~20 a fill and I have a nice gas stove inside that heats less than 5 gallons pretty quickly. That and it's just easier and more comfortable for me. My cooler mash tun fits in a perfect spot on the kitchen counter. As far as build goes I'm more of a runner than a weight lifter - So that ~55 lbs of water or wort is awkward to move around. I use a little caster dolly to push things around in my hardwood floored apartment, but like I said moving onto and off from the burner and cooling is tough. Thanks for the advice nonetheless!
