I own it ...hard copy! Bought because it was "the recommended" beginner's bible. I love books about brewing, so I can't bag it outright, but I agree, it's not for the newbie brewer. I liked the chapters about recipes and working efficiencies, and the technical info on mash pH ... but, really if this...

Given that your recipe looks pretty forgiving with just the single hop addition, I would say jump in and have a crack at it. It will giv...

I cut mine out of a sheet of ply ...it was stuff I had laying around, but seems to do the trick. I also lined it with a foam gym mat (cheap from a discount shop) which I also use to insulate the kettle once mash temp is attained.

If your handy enough to jigsaw a circle its an easy solution.

Just backing up what hashie is saying ...as long as you keep a positive pressure on the keg, your beer will be fine until next time you chill it down and serve it.

Hey jb, my kids bought me a Blichmann Beer Gun for my birthday. I haven't used it yet, but I'll let everyone know how it works. I've read other forums where they have been bagged.

I like your ingenuity ...I almost asked for a cf filler, but I thought the Blichmann looked cooler ;) :cool:

I started out no-chilling because I didn't have a wort chiller. It was a quick, cheap, easy way to store wort until I could pitch yeast.
