  • Posted in thread: KEGlove worth it? Cheapest price? on 09-29-2015 at 05:04 PM
    I've had one for about 3 years, and I agree with all of the comments so far. I've learned to
    put the ice blanket into the keg glove when it's still liquid, then freezing it when it's
    already in the ke...

  • Posted in thread: New Cider Brewer, quick picture help on 09-10-2015 at 05:09 PM
    Very normal. Cider's don't have krausen because there are very little proteins. That's the
    cider equivalent of a krausen.

  • Posted in thread: How does this Hefeweizen recipe sound? on 09-10-2015 at 05:03 PM
    You don't mention which yeast you are using. Yeast is the star in a Hefe, and it MUST be a Hefe
    yeast to make a proper Hefe. You can't just toss in S-05 or something like that. The only
    suitable dry y...

    Those are unreasonable rules. I would have rebrewed it anyway. So they are saying if you had
    anything with prominent hop character or anything wheat based, you were basically not allowed
    to win. BS.

    Holy zombie thread! All the peeps that participated in this thread are long dead by now :)I bet
    you could load that recipe into BeerSmith. :p

    How was that 2015 Bud Light? I prefer the 2014 myself.

    Yeah, we do a new shirt every year, so we have plenty of the stock "club logo" shirt. I'm
    looking for a unique or witty slogan or graphic idea.

  • Posted in thread: Homebrew Club T-Shirt on 08-12-2015 at 03:46 PM
    Anyone have any witty ideas for a homebrew club t-shirt? I'm not above repurposing someone
    else's idea :D I'm pretty good at running with an idea and filling in the graphics, etc., but
    looking for a g...

  • Posted in thread: Ice Bin for 4 Kegs on 07-29-2015 at 03:33 AM
    Definitely NOT compact. We have a 8 tap system, this would JUST be for icing the kegs hooked up
    to the system. As stated, we have some big bins already, just trying to economize space at this

  • Posted in thread: Ice Bin for 4 Kegs on 07-29-2015 at 03:18 AM
    I went to Home Depot today before I posted this with a printout of the footprint of four corny
    kegs, and believe it or not, they had nothing that would fit four. Three was the max, and they
    tended to ...
