As for the kegging set up, I'd say go for it. I only bottled my first batch. After that I got a
3 keg set up with a 7.1CF Chest freezer from sams club. A Johnson A419 temp controller to run

UPDATE!Well, it has been a long road. After fermentation and a diacetyl rest, I put it in my

I find that a 1 inch tube fits perfectly inside the three piece airlock. I use it in my

Update. Well, I left the bucket full of starsan for about a week and a half or so. Washed it

can pick it ...

Alright. It is finished. A few rookie mistakes, and lessons learned. It finished out right at
1.00, giving me 7.47%ABV. I used 6 cans of concentrate and got it up to 1.022. I gave up at
that point as ...
