  • Posted in thread: That Dreaded First-Beer Foam... on 03-10-2011 at 02:40 AM
    I used to have the same problem until my wife remembered something she learned while working at
    a beer bar. Try opening your tap all the way for a second then quickly shut it off. Wait 30
    seconds then...

  • Posted in thread: LEAKY rubbermaid 10gallon mash tun- advice needed. on 03-01-2011 at 04:04 AM
    I had a little leak in mine, after some searching here, I ended up making a washer out of an
    old baby bottle nipple for the inside- silicone, BPA free and works great. My feeling is with
    the coolers i...

  • Posted in thread: New 5lb CO2 tank - possibly leaking on 02-22-2011 at 02:08 PM
    I just went thru this with my tank and regulator, I initially had a leak at the keg gas
    disconnect- but ended up having a slow leak due to a bad o-ring where the regulator connects to
    the tank. I coul...

    Well, to piggyback, I am setting up a manifold so I can use one propane tank for my HLT and BK.
    I have the 30PSI regulator that came with my KAB4 and an old Brinkman turkey fryer with a
    burner that lo...

  • Posted in thread: Sight glass in boil kettle? on 02-09-2011 at 02:15 AM
    I like a thermometer and sight glass on my BK, the thermometer for cooling with an immersion
    chiller and the sight glass for pre and post boil volumes. I built my own but by the time I
    sourced everyth...

    I'm using a small ceramic space heater in my fridge that was on clearance at wally world- it's
    controlled by a single stage love controller, have to change it from heat to cool manually. It

    I have a brew infuser, works great for dry hopping with pellets, couldn't do much whole hop dry
    hopping with it. I had contacted them before it was available in the states and they emailed me
    as soon ...

    I'm doing a similar thing for a reunion, I have two in secondary and two in primary and have
    room for two kegs in a fridge. My plan at this time is to use corn sugar to carb the kegs at
    room temp, coo...

    Williams brewing sells draft towers without the faucets, then you can just add the faucets you
    want. Not much cheaper than getting one with the inexpensive faucets though.

  • Posted in thread: Interesting facts about oxiclean! on 06-14-2007 at 03:22 PM
    I think the blue crystals are a detergent added to percarbonates. I just finished off an old
    tub without the crystals and have started a new tub with the crystals- much more foam (i.e.
    soap suds) in t...
