    Heres my two cents on this Oberon clone. I used Boerderij_Kabouter's recipe and followed it to
    a tee, minus the decoction and the yeast. I harvested Bells yeast from an Oberon bottle and
    stepped it up...

    I wonder if there is a way to attach a keg post to the bottle to pressurize it with a few psi.

    So my brother gave me a Seltzer bottle that he thought I could use for homebrewing. The problem
    is I have no idea what to do with it. I've searched this site and cant find anyone that has
    used it for ...

    Very cool.

    The hot sparge also gives you a consistent time that the conversion stops. Not a big deal if
    youre not trying to duplicate your beer.

    How long are the lines? Cant you just siphon off a bucket full of sanitizer or water?

    This was a huge help! I've helped a friend do some all grain batches with his mash paddle. I
    just did my first all grain today with a grout mixer and it was so much easier. Thanks again.

    Chest freezers hold more kegs and are easier to get things in and out of. Also easier to build
    a collar to get beer lines out of the keezer.

    I put my temp probe in a bottle of water in the keezer. It is a much more accurate
    representation of the beer temp. It also keeps the compressor from kicking on and off too much.

  • Posted in thread: What is your experience with peated malt? on 01-11-2010 at 10:59 PM
    I've used peat a couple of times. A friend of mine brewed a peat smoke IPA that was outstanding
