    Talk to your LHBS about getting one of their empty extract barrels. You could probably get one

    What beerthirty posted a picture of is used to aerate wort, so I'm not sure why he posted that.
    I would stay as far away from that as you can at this stage in the game. That's what I use when

    Wrap the cheese cloth loosely around your racking cane. Then while racking pull the cloth a
    little so hops don't pack up around the opening and stop the flow. you can also use something
    like this on t...

    You can pick up a flaring kit at HF for about $10-15. While not the quality of the ones Beemer

    I've gone 6 weeks with the BMBF. Very little carbonation was lost in the head space.

    The 8610 can be used to control solenoid valves for gas flow. That way you can keep the system

    It will die when you rack off of the yeast and dry it or flash freeze it. Don't worry about the
    yeast. Any bottle condition beer or sparkling wine has live yeast in it. RDWHAHB, live yeast is

    I use a flow meter to control O2 flow. It works fine and I thought it would take one less step

    Screens tend to clog up in BKs from hot break and loose hop material. Your MLT plans are what
    most of that use FBs do. I use hop bags and don't worry about break material, it settles in the
