+1^When Pergo came out with that stuff, I saw a flooring dealer do crazy things with it to
prove it was nearly indestructable. Banging it with a hammer, scouring sand over it, even put a
blowtorch on ...
Posted in thread: Ever flush your kegs with CO2 from primary? on 12-07-2016 at 01:22 PM
This is my real pain: the nearest fill station (a Norco) charged me $23 to fill a FIVE pound
cylinder. They tried to talk up the cost effectiveness of a 20# cylinder, but IIRC the price
for that was s...

Ouch!Not much you can do, whether it is vinyl planks, wood, or linoleum. Deep scratches and

The yeast I've just bought. I don't have a 3 gallon carboy, but I do have a stir plate. My best
chance is to buy another Erlenmeyer flask or/and decant. What about just cold crashing and
decant? Is it...

When the carboy remains "dressed," the bag is a form of insulation, so inside the ferm chamber
your beer may longer retain the heat generated by fermentation.Dropping the pants allows the
carboy to be...
Posted in thread: Carboy Cover - safe way to transport? on 12-05-2016 at 06:25 PM
The Brewhaulers are pretty safe, as long as you strap them down tightly and spread out the

stitchings will ...
