  • Recently started homebrewing because my girlfriend asked me if I thought we could do it. Bought a keg for $20 and made a keggle. Made a 15.5 gallon stanke fermenter with the bottom (previously the top) a drain, and the top seals with a corny lid. Also bought a 7 cu ft. chest freezer for $40 off craigslist, built a collar around it with 4x6s and 4x8s, bought a conversion thermostat, and made a kegerator. Made my mash tun out of a 70 liter cooler, and use the keggle as the hot water tun. So far the setup is working pretty well.

    Just moved my primary to the secondary and added the vanilla beans (split and soaked in vodka
    for a week). The gravity was 1.011, making it approx a 7.9% AC. A bit stronger than I had
    planned, may hav...

    Thanks for the recipe Cheshire. I live in KC Missouri and my girlfriend wanted to get me some
    of Boulevard's seasonal chocolate ale for my birthday. Crazy thing is they sold out everywhere
    by noon, ev...

    ShKottyI don't really remember what my favorites were. I just moved and don't know where my
    records were. I want to say it ended up around 5% AC. I want to say it was 48 before the
    oranges and they sh...

    Yeah I could take some pictures of the outside assembly now, but won't be able to take pics of
    the entire drain assembly for another few weeks once the fermentation process is complete.
    Basically I us...

    I cut the keg spear at the bottom of the spring where it's crimped to hold the spring in, and
    then made a PVC drain to fit it. Basically so I could make it removable and sealed with the
    original fitti...

    I don't know, I guess I could always drain it slowly until it comes out clear and then use it
    to empty the rest. I attached the drain to the original sanke spear, cut it off right about
    where the spri...

    I actually just ordered 3 retaining rings from old scrap kegs off of some web site, along with
    a gas manifold - 4 way distribution system for my Kegerator. Already have 4 perlick taps set
    up. I'm goin...

    I'm not in the habit of ever asking questions. I couldn't find any info on funky tasting fruit
    beers otherwise I would never have started this forum. I just mentioned a few thoughts, and
    since I knew ...

    To tell you the truth I only started homebrewing about a month ago. This wheat beer was my
    first batch. I bought a few corny kegs and have been planning on force carbonating over a few
    days at 30 psi ...

    The only difference between my closed fermenting sanke system is that I don't have a 15psi
    pressure release like you do. I have a corny keg lid attached to my keg, which does build up a
    ton of pressur...
