+1 for the water hazard in the braided line. Had that happen a couple of times - just put as
much braid as you can into a 350deg oven for 30min or so. Or just wrap it tightly with some

Maybe Centennials in the boil and Cascades for the DH...

I dry-hop my IPA for 2-3 weeks at around 68 deg F. No grass flavor whatsoever, but I am just
using Cascade pellets.

The guys at kegconnection will treat you right. I've purchased 3 sets of 4 B-grade and all work
just fine. I do have a couple with loose tops; anyone know where I can get new tops?

Posted in thread: How long to successfully cold crash a starter? on 05-25-2009 at 01:08 PM
I usually give it 24-48 hrs to cold crash. If I don't have the time I just pour off the
