  • I was first introduced to home brewing about 10 years ago. A buddy of mine made beer with a pretty primitive setup. We made some great bear and some not so much. Early in 2012 a friend of mine got a kit for this birthday. He asked me to help him brew (knowing my past) and I was hooked. Being the kind of guy who goes all-out I decided to start with all grain. I've never looked back. I've brewed 36 batches this year and just upgraded my setup to a 10 gallon rig.

  • Posted in thread: What's your occupation: Engineer or Non-Engineer on 12-30-2012 at 01:29 AM
    I have a masters in computer engineering and grew up working for my dad who was a mechanic.
    Fabrication is in my blood.

    Also, if you are keeping your C02 bottle in your kegerator, the pressure will go down
    significantly and appear like the bottle has lost gas. If you warm it up again, it will come
    back up to pressure. ...

    I didn't like the "light-switch" option either so I took some ideas from the Electric Brewery
    website and built this junction box. It was pretty easy to put together.Here's the list of
    materials and w...

    I have 3 Blichmann 10 gallon kettles and I have nothing but good things to say about them. The
    mash tun false bottom works really well. I've brewed 40 all-grain batches and have never had a

  • Posted in thread: How long are your beer lines? I have foamy beer! on 12-27-2012 at 11:15 PM
    I have an 8 tap setup. I made all my beer lines 6' long and run at 10 to 12 psi until the beer
    is fully carbonated. Then I back down to 5 or 6 psi. I keep the kegerator at 35 degrees and I
    get nice po...

    I agree with Chrisl77. I have the exact same regulator and 3 banjo burners with needle valves
    on each. They work great.

    I just finished my single tier build and went through the exact same steps. I ended up using
    stainless steel pipe rather than black iron. My old setup rusted like crazy. I also went with

    I have six glass carboys and six brew haulers. Been using them for a year and never had a
    problem. I move my full carboys across carpet and tile to my fermenting closet off our bedroom.
