  • 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...

    Thanks guys. It was a bit of a pain, but once I got the hang of it it wasn't too bad.I prefer
    the 90 deg bends because the plan is to mount it underneath the top of a brew cart eventually,
    and this wa...

    Hey everyone,I thought that since I've had a brew under my belt with this beast, I should
    probably share it on here. I've only seen one or two of these on HBT so far, and they were
    smaller versions wi...

    An emoji does not exist that expresses the pure awe and envy which I feel. That is an
    OUTSTANDING build. Probably the best build quality of ANY piece of equipment I've seen here on
    HBT, and I'm an una...

    I'd say either of those are good choices, I'm debating going to something like that myself. I
    don't love the idea of having my PSU in the garage sucking up grain dust. For now I just wired
    a super lon...

    Yes, been a while since I wrote that and had to think about it a little. Doesn't appear that I
    worded it very clearly, but the green to black tells the psu that it is good to go to power on
    the mother...

    Is the pipe and nut on that false bottom stainless? I might be interested in the false bottom,
    bottom drain and hose. How much for those 3 shipped to 40245?
