  • I was reading about home brewing on the internet, and asked for a kit for my 21st birthday. I immediately got into DIY, and modified my kettle for a bulkhead valve to accept the counter-flow HX I built. rnrnSince then, I've collected a decent amount of kit. I built a mash tun from a cooler, and got a Blichmann Boilermaker and burner for Christmas. AG all the way!

    Another upvote for Wilserbrewer. Wonderful stuff. I made a 10 gallon Wee Heavy batch in it -
    wetted grain weight was a little under 100 pounds, and the bag handled it like a champ.

    It happens on multiple kegs that I've swapped, so I doubt it's an o-ring issue.Temperature
    seems the most likely suspect, although that still doesn't explain why I never saw the issue
    with vinyl lines...

    I recently started switching over my kegerator lines from vinyl to polypropylene, and I've
    noticed an issue - the beer seems to drain back into the keg slowly, such that when I go to
    pour, there's a h...

    UPDATE: Beer has started pouring at an alright rate, albeit a bit slower than my others.Inches?
    Are you sure you don't mean feet? Indeed, inches. don't by any chance have this hooked up to
    a stout t...

    Yes, 14". Multiple keg line calculators showed a little over 11" for vinyl tubing, so I ratioed
    the flow resistance of polyethylene vs vinyl.

    I've got a five tap keezer, with individually regulated CO2 for each. One of my favorites to
    have on tap is a Premium Bitter, which I serve at 1.8 volumes. Using polyethylene tubing, this
    means about ...

    Thanks, I went the whole way at once. You could do it in modules though, just plan for it. I'm
    an STS2/SS when I got out in 2000, I enlisted as a EM and went to the schools, but was offered
    to cross r...

    First, Holy. F***. Well done, all around! If someone wanted to eventually get to a level like
    this, would you recommend starting with just an electric manual brewery, and then transitioning
    to automat...

  • Posted in thread: Help tweaking a light oat beer on 04-28-2015 at 12:07 AM
    I made this a few weeks ago, mostly because I found the name amusing, but also because I wanted
    to see what a light oat beer was like. I made it after the style of a wheat beer, but with
    oats.5 gal AG...

    Currently, the collar sits on top, with squishy insulation under it. The lid is sucked the collar.
