    Thanks BigTerp. Spunding valve seems like a great idea, I am also considering buying it.Not a
    problem.I was going to build one, but once I sourced all the parts it would only be a few bucks
    more to bu...

    Less than one pint. Generally, if you let the beer sit and don't move it for a day or two when
    you put it in the kegerator, the only sediment will come out in the first 3-4 ounces. There may
    be more i...

    I naturally carb all of my kegs. I use Tasty Brew's calculator to figure out how much priming
    sugar I need for each keg. I use the bottle priming calculator and then cut the amount in half.

    2 faucets in a 2.5" tower can be done. I was successful with mine. 5th post down in the

    Faucet wrench makes it easy getting the faucets on and off. Also less chance of dinging up the
    faucet using a faucet wrench as opposed to something else.I did take mine apart and
    clean/sanitize when I...

    I received a Stanley Classic Vacuum Insulated Growler for Christmas. Love it!! Very well
    constructed and it's kept my beer cold and carbed for 8+ hours easily. The handle makes for
    easy pouring compar...

    I'm entering this into an upcoming local homebrew competition under the saison/belgian
    category. It's just a local competition sponsored by the local homebrew shop, so nothing fancy.
    Was wondering wha...

    That stir plate will hold a 5L flask. That's what I use and honestly, Ive used the 1 gallon
    jugs and have been successful in not getting the stir bar knocked off. Id just break down and
    by a 5L flask ...

    Thanks for all the responses.What do you guys covering the tops of some of these containers
    with? Obviously a foam stopper won't fit some of the suggestions.

    What do you all use for you big starters, larger than 2L? I have a 2L flask and continually
    find myself needing something bigger for most 10 gallon batches I brew. Trying to avoid buying
    a 5L flask, b...
