    Looks nice. I would add 2 more wheels in the center of the platform for added stability. I
    built a platform like that once and mine had some fairly heavy objects toward the center, so it
    really needed...

    I soak them in hot water with oxy clean. After about 10 minutes, the labels fall right off,
    then a light scrub with a green 3m pad takes the glue right off.

    I've made some beer that was soo good I couldn't believe I actually made it. I've also made
    some that made me want to puke as soon as I tasted it. I've dumped a few batches I think may
    have been infec...

    I bottled 7 6packs, they were all 12oz bottles and I put approx 3/4 teaspoon of table sugar
    each. All bottles were soaked in oxy clean, scrubbed with a bottle brush on a power drill,
    rinsed, heat sani...

    I both bottle and keg, I bottle mainly for mobility or if I spend time up in the man cave and

    Same problem here. All my stuff is currently in the laundry room. Stuff is stacked on the
    dryer, on shelves next to the soap and dryer sheets. I have a makeshift shelf intruding on the
    clothes hanging...

    when fermenting beer is it better to use glass or plastic?????I have 1 glass and 1 plastic.
    They both have pluses and minuses, but neither outweighes the other so I keep using both.

    Sorry, hate to do this, but that is totally backwards. I'll defer to the posts above (and of
    course, 100 older threads just like this one) instead of repeating them. Granted, some
    dishwashers might no...

    I soak all bottles in oxyclean, then use a bottle brush on an electric drill to scrub them
    good. I put all the soapy bottles in the dishwasher and run a full cycle with a soap tab, and
    let the heat co...
