  • I had always wanted to make beer. The thought of making an alcoholic beverage that I could share with friends and family seemed like one hell of an ice breaker and who dosn't like the beer guy. More than that I can't appreciate any of the major domestic beers and a few imports. I just don't get what people see in bud, coors, miller Busch light.... etc... So one day my buddy calls me up and says DUDE!!! I JUST GOT A HOMEBREW KIT AND SOME STUFF FOR A BATCH OF BEER!!! There was one problem though. He ran out of money to fill in a few equipment gaps. Like a brew kettle, big stainless spoon, strainer, funnel and some sanitizer. So we followed the instructions to the letter on our first batch of beer. We ended up tossing the dry yeast directly from the package into the carboy and putting on the airlock and universal bung not understanding the importance of a blow-off tube...... Well, we went to the LHBS the next day, frantic I might add, after we found the airlock, bung and all, on the floor

    tried to fire up my pump and recirculate through my cfc to sterilize it before cooling to my
    carboys. The...

    go big or go home. IPA with simcoe then you'll konw. Don't water down a good thing. Simcoe is
    my favorite hop. Along with citrus and all that pineapple-ish almost comes to mind... If you

    Nice and shiny! Although I have a small concern. All those threaded elbows and nipples and T's.

    I got a bag of rolled corn chicken feed for kicks and grins. To brew with it I need to
    gelatinize(sp?) it. How long do ya need to boil it to have that happen? :)

    Isn't it INSANE the amount of time a project can take. Recently scraped popcorn celing from
    about 300-400 square feet and hung 130 feet of crown molding. Painted walls, etc... I thought I
    could get it...

    I'm sure it'd take a TON of solder, but could you just coat one completely in lead free solder?
    WAY out there idea, most likely be cheaper to just get a brand new stainless, but if so

    I used to work in a circuit board shop. I was in drilling. The tables were driven by some crazy
    long screws and impressivly large servos. After so long the shafts were discarded as they were
    unfit for...

  • Posted in thread: What should I build with this? on 12-19-2009 at 12:20 PM
    boil pot for BIG beers that need extra time in the boil kettle. With all the surface area that
    thing has it might cut a half hour off of a 2 hour boil... :ban:
