Just brewed my fourth brew, a nice looking English IPA. Its a More Beer extract kit. Looks great and smells great. In a week I will put in the oak chips. Waiting to try my porter I have been bottle conditioning. It will be ready next week.

Thanks for the info on where to get CO2. Well, with the snow we received yesterday I got out of work early and was able to keg my IPA and I brewed a Northwest Passage Ale. Ready for more snow!

So jealous of the guys who can keg in Japan.

I made an igloo yesterday with all the snow!

I think you might be on to something... The first person to ever brew in an igloo... (and I'm not talkin' coolers, here)

If you watch Yahoo auctions, you can sometimes pick up a single tap beer server for pretty cheap. You don't have to go the Corny keg route.

And a double tap isn't much more!

Mine came with Kirin heads. I don't use them and planned on selling them, but instead use the adapters that were attached to them.

Do you mind posting pics of your setup?

And anyone else who kegs, I'm very interested in what you have going on!

I don't mind. Give me a few days and I'll post something to the Japan group. Someone else might beat me to it, though...

Awesome, thanks. Looking forward to it. I bottled a batch this morning, and even with my wife helping, it's not the most fun thing to do.

Ah yes, bottling is a pain in the butt, my dog always wants to drop her ball and bowl over a few whenever we would bottle. Any of you guys been to Cafe Hopman in Chigasaki? We are supposed to meet some friends there on Monday but after looking at the prices Im not so sure, I'd much rather go to Yokohama and hit all the Tap rooms around there and not go broke drinking beer.
