Posted in thread: Show us your DIY stir plate! on 09-21-2016 at 12:42 AM
So, I went a different route. Not the most powerful stirplate but I'm hopeful it will suit my
needs. I picked up a laptop cooling base from amazon. Like 13 bucks. Put a hole in the mesh
top, epoxied o...

O-rings over the years will take on a new shape after being compressed for a while. The
standard rebuild kits for corneillus kegs should serve you just fine.For fun, I'm interested.
Is that a ball loc...
Posted in thread: What "methods" of mash and sparge are depicted here? on 09-13-2016 at 02:55 AM
Hi, guys, and thanks for the feedback - the BIAB is a method that I've often considered with
this but have never tried. Perhaps my next brew will remedy that, and I can compare them. I can
get paint s...

any progress on this? I was thinking of making a tall narrow mash tun with some stainless steel

Gotcha. Would you go all the way through with the bolts or would you stop part way?I googled
edge bolts in rudders to make sure my mental picture was what you were talking about. I was
close. Based on...

Not exactly. The lid has a beveled edge, that fits into a matching groove in the staves. The
internal joints on the lids are flush, with thin shavings between the parts. They are held in
place by edge...

Right. The structure of the sides is completely different, the geometry too. And I know that
boatbuilding is not a parallel, as the pressure is inward among other reasons. I do find a

Monti, the wood can exert great pressure from swelling. I suspect that it would have some

Matt, I thought that too. But I've since read that metal kegs only became prevalent in the
1950s. My keg may be as young as 70 years old. This keg didn't hold real ale, almost certainly
