Bought that Corona mill that was at the store the other day. Ran some wheat through it. Looks almost identical to the wheat ran through the roller mill at the store.

Those big O rings that seal the lid on can harbor the soft drink flavors, get them real clean.

They have a nice O ring kit, with a zillion rings in it, all different sizes, for real cheap at Harbor Freight up on Main St.

Studying this weekend... Think I'm brewing on Tuesday. If I can get my CFC built before then. If not, hopefully sometime next week.

Doing my first kegging the Thursday after this. Thanks for the Oxyclean heads up. Do you soak in oxyclean and then use star san? My 4 came with O-ring kits; Should I try to clean the existing ones or just go ahead and replace all of them? Thanks.

Thanks much; Really looking forward to not having to bottle. Really having a hard time waiting another week and a half to keg this beer... will have been 3 weeks on Thursday. Recipe says 6 weeks, but I think 4 will have to do...

unless you are lagering I say 6 weeks is ridiculous.

unless it's a RIS or barleywine at which point you should keg anyway...

what are you fermenting?

Just an American Amber Ale. Let it sit in the primary for a little less than 2 1/2 weeks and just racked it to clear up on Sunday. Was going to give it a little over a week and a half before I kegged.

I only use boiling water for my kegs now. If you scan back a couple pages you'll find a long post about it.

Boil about a gallon of water and toss it in. Shake the keg around, put some pressure on it and dispense though your beer line.

I've had great success with this method.
