  • My sister bought me a "just add water to a plastic bag" beer kit about 12 years ago and it was horrible.
    My old Navy buddy showed me how to extract brew about 4 years ago and SWMBO bought me a homebrew kit and 2 keg system for xmas 2007! I've brewed over 100 gallons since, but production never keeps up with demand. Now, Fall 2010, a friend and I are building a single tier AG system a piece at a time.
    I pretty much brew the same Scottish Ale and Hefeweizen recipes because they taste awesome. My friend I brew with caught the bug when I showed him how to brew this last summer 2010 and because of his bug, I am trying a few new recipes and moving to the AG system.
    12/2010: finished building a single tier, 15 g., 3 vessel, HERMS system!

    I give mine to my chickens and turkeys. They love it more than millet and clover. Trade it for
    some fresh eggs from a local farmer.

    I have been using a Chuggar pump for over 2 years and it works great at temps below 170F.
    Supposedly that issue has been fixed on the current pumps. There are several Chuggar vs. March

  • Posted in thread: Conicals or Carboys? on 05-03-2012 at 02:14 PM
    I use an assortment of carboys, buckets, and a 15g plastic conical, so no shine. However, of
    all these, the conical is my favorite. I don't have to split batches, I can fill a keg in under
    1 minute, c...

    I've added bing cherries to my hefes several times. They were fresh and all I did was wash them
    with starsan, pitted them, put them in a hop sack, and added to the keg. I used 2 pounds worth
    and it ta...

    We have a strict unwritten rule that you don't bother someone on their off time for work
    related issues. Off time is for family, relaxation, or brewing beer. If you are hourly, they
    should not be both...

    I take readings so that when I make something great, I know how to reproduce it later on.This
    and people always want to know what the ABV is of what I give them.
