  • My brother, brother-in-law, and cousin all are beer enthusiasts and conspired to get me to start brewing. They figured with my love of beer and neurotic attention to detail and research that I would make good beer. Thus, they agreed to fund my brewing ventures, so long as they received regular deposits of beer. I have been brewing AG from day one. Over the last few years I have slowly improved, added to, and advanced my brew system. I have the potential to brew 20g batches but usually brew 12-15 gallons.

    if you have a way to crash the temperature, you could keep it in there no problem. Many people
    keep hops in their kegs for the duration of the keg with no trouble. I would be concerned with
    the extra ...

    I definitely had to laugh at myself for this one. So far my batting average has been great, so
    I really can't complain. I did consider letting it thaw only 80 or 90 percent, and then racking
