Its supposedly a early Mr Beer (Or possibly Mr Brew).. It was given to me and although odd.. I like it.

Lots of head room
Nice and light
Clear see thru
Nice large 8" screw on top (w/ seal)
Top fits a standard air vent.
My colander fits in the opening so I can strain off the hops and such..
It even has a spout on the bottom about 3/4" off the bottom (Like on a bottling bucket can simply screw off for cleaning)



Been trying to find info on it and haven't so much as a wiki mention. Just what I was told and what a few here have said.. Which is the first sentence




Anyway I went and rigged something up.. removed the top of the air vent and put a 1/2" hose to it and ran it to a glass of water sitting next to it in the sink. filled it up about 2" enough for the water pressure to equalize the air pressure.. burping about once a sec now.. about the same rate the top was burping on the vent. If it blows up now it should just dump overfill the glass and go right into the sink.. That should work right..?

BTW got to love Craigs' list.. haven't cleaned my garage yet, but found that stainless steel service sink that fit perfect on there for $100.. and It came with the faucet. Be it I had to change the faucet arm to hold a 3/4" garden hose fitting but can't complain for $100. I had to replace the sink as it was too grubby to use for any sort of brewing activity and it was broken to the point of not being able to hold water. Hopefully I can make the rest of the room into a brew room once I get the garage cleaned up.

And you have a urinal in your garage...lol?

That set up should be fine, I use a bigger gallon jug to run the house into next to it.

Yep.. no room for a ****ter When I added the additon, I Added to the side of the house.. so I had access to the end of the plumbing line.

Being a plumbing designer for a Mechanical contractor.. I had access to leftover stuff.. Needless to say all my car buddies are all jealous

That is amazing. I planned on one in a room inside my brew room when SWMBO and I finally start building our place in a year or so. But right there! That's awesome.

I figured I am in garage, and while in the garage working on my cars I am grubby, and last thing SWMBO would want is me trekking through the house. I thought I should add a small bathroom in the garage.

During design I realized, I was just slightly lower than crawl space. But, I did have the fall for a sink and could install one with minimal plumbing. But installing a WC would require a lot of digging.. so a full bathroom was out.

Then I thought, I tend to be drinking beer while in the garage, which means I usually don't have to do anything more than take a leak and well.. and there did seem to be room in the storage closet.

TA DA !! An Urinal in a garage thought was hatched, and born.

BTW Think every guy that spends any amount of time in his garage should have one.

Hey guys I have been brewing on and off for a couple years. I have never had an infection, but 2 weeks in secondary tomorrow I went down to look at my first real lager. And this is what's going on. I was hoping to rack to a keg tonight to carb and take to a ski-weekend. I haven't tasted it yet. Any thoughts?

Thanks guys, just seemed to pop up in the last few days so I was skeptical but with your confidence I'll try it tonight before kegging.

This is a smoked Porter that I racked in the secondary on fresh vanilla beans that I had in vodka for about a week. Could this film be from the vanilla or an infection of some kind? Only my second batch so this might be a noob question
