Yeah I've been using a stir plate now for a couple of years, it's ugly but it works great. Also
have a dedicated chest freezer/stc1000 for fermentation.With the 2 micron stone do you have to
run it fo...

I've decided this is going to be my next equipment upgrade.I'd like to stick with the little
disposable oxygen tanks, instead of buying a big tank and trying to figure out how to get it
filled.I was l...
Posted in thread: Show your BIAB Stand/Set up on 10-10-2014 at 03:45 AM
After brewing with 2 coolers and a kettle for a couple of years, I decided to scale back to
BIAB for a bit. We just had a baby (our first!), so simplifying (and shortening) brew days is

Rock on :rockin:That's exactly the sort technique I was looking for, but it wasn't able to come

Sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but does anyone have any tips for cleanly widening a
hole like socal2009's pics above? When I cut the lid off my keg, I used a jig to get a nice
Posted in thread: Anybody attach a ball lock disconnect to a racking cane or bottling bucket? on 10-10-2014 at 12:10 AM
Saw this blog post: thought that would be a pretty good idea. Purge a keg with CO2, and if I

Posted in thread: Small rust spot on new stainless pot on 10-05-2014 at 04:49 AM
While on the topic of BKF, it also works wonders to remove rust spots on your cutlery and is
the best thing I know of to use on a ceramic stove top. Although burnt sugar from boilovers
