  • I am still fairly new to brewing in my own opinion. I've been brewing since February 2012, and after 4 or 5 extract batches (some turned out good, others not so much), I moved on to all-grain. Right now I do AG full-volume BIAB in a keggle with a KAB4 Banjo Burner. I have 2 more 15.5gal kegs that I plan on cutting and turning into a MLT and HLT eventually. I built a 12.9cu.ft. keezer with a full wooden top and 3 SS Perlick taps. I plan on eventually expanding to as many as 6-8 taps as I am able to. I really enjoy the process, and you can't beat the fact that when you're done, you have really good beer to drink. Win win, right? I have a wonderful wife. She is very patient and allows me my hobby obsessions. If only she liked to drink beer...

  • I got into home-brewing in Feb. 2012. My sister-in-law had bought my brother a kit from Mr. Beer for his birthday the previous year, and decided to get me one to start some friendly brotherly competition. I've since moved on from the Mr. Beer kit and into All-Grain brewing with a keggle.

  • Posted in thread: SS Fire ring for sparge attachment? on 02-08-2016 at 03:11 AM
    Cpvc would be cheaper, but I'm trying to avoid any plastics in the hot side process. Metal and
    silicone hose is all I'd like. Not sure that I will go with a sparge, since at the moment I

    I was browsing the interwebs for ideas to build a sparge arm, and came across these two items.
    I was wondering if anyone has used something like this (meant for gas use, not liquid) for a
    sparge arm?T...

    Is the curve going to be butting up against the maple flooring, or some other design element?
    Curves in tile are a pain in the ass.

    This looks like you are using a keggle. how did you take your measurements to ensure everything
    is accurate?I leveled the keg on my kitchen floor, and then used a 1 gallon measuring pitcher.

    It was a major pain in the ass trying to work inside of it. So I'm not sure just how accurate
    the lower marks ended up, but I'm pretty happy with the results. We'll see how they hold up to
    actual brew...
