  • Posted in thread: Sanitizing with only oxyclean and star san? on 08-06-2014 at 04:29 AM
    That's pretty close to my routine. I spray off whatever I can with the hose, then let Oxyclean
    sit and soak to clean out the Better Bottles, and Oxyclean in a 5 gallon bucket to soak other
    stuff. I sp...

  • Posted in thread: can you cannibalize a corny keg to work on a sanke tap? on 07-26-2014 at 09:18 PM
    Maybe?? I have not seen a fitting that puts ball lock posts on a Sanke tap. I suppose one could
    be made, but they are odd sizes, and would require a base that supports the poppet spring. You
    could pro...

    Impressive job, especially to have been done with only portable tools!

    I just found this thread. I live about 1/2 hour away, so I was hopeful when I called.
    Unfortunately, they said they had no liquid yeast, and would not be getting any, as business
    was "pretty slow" and...

    Did you try asking the Auber folks about getting some brackets? I've not had to ask such a
    thing, but they have a pretty good reputation for support.

  • Posted in thread: Found an oxygen tank wondering if it's safe to use on 06-12-2014 at 04:04 AM
    Is it in date for hydrostatic testing? The date should be stamped near the neck of the tank. I
    have a couple of them, and the respiratory care supplier just swapped out my outdated bottle
    for a newer ...

  • Posted in thread: Electric Vs. Natural Gas on 05-19-2014 at 03:45 AM
    Where will you be brewing? If you are brewing in your house, electric brewing is far more
    civil. I have brewed electrically using heatsticks, and also over natural gas burners. I was
    brewing over gas ...

  • Posted in thread: Mash Tun too wide on 05-19-2014 at 03:31 AM
    That sounds like the size of the "Megapots" I use, although I think of them as 25 gallon
    kettles, 20 inches tall, 20 inches in diameter. I mash in a cooler, because that's how I got
    started, and the f...

  • Posted in thread: Brew Stand Water Filter with Chiller Valve on 05-09-2014 at 11:53 PM
    There has to be some energy source for mold or mildew to grow. If you have only water in it,
    and that water is not exposed to light, there is no opportunity for anything to grow. If there
    is light pen...
