Posted in thread: Let's see your RO setup on 10-29-2013 at 07:13 PM
RO systems are terribly inefficient (netting around 1-3 gallons of RO water for every 5-10
gallons wasted) and require quite a bit of water pressure to work properly, much more than
you'd get from an ...

I used WLP715, which imparts very little to no flavor on it's own, and can get the ABV up to
~12% depending on how much sugar it has to work with. Other wine, champagne, or London ale
yeasts would pro...

I decided to make an AppleJack, and wanted it smooth and tasty. This is a drink to warm you up
and get you hammered FAST! It goes down incredibly smooth, and tastes great! My friend and I
got blitzed ...

That was the most useful reply you could have ever posted. Thank you very much! That shows the
exact data I needed and couldn't find, and for every common plastic on the market. I'm

The last thing to mention about carbonation is that a soda stream can barely carb water

it only absorbs a ...

A welding shop will almost certainly have CO2 refills available, but make sure you get an
aluminum for your swap out; you don't want the possible rusting of a steel tank and the
aluminum is lighter as...

Replace your soda stream with a carbonator cap now that you have a CO2 tank and you'll save a
ton in CO2 costs (those soda streams are a rip off). Also, MANY places sell CO2, not just the

The extra step of pouring syrup is simple if you use a syrup hand pump. You can get them at
restaurant supply stores and usually it'd be a pump or 2 per glass. That should make it easier
for the lazy ...

I've searched around and seen the differences between PET, multi-layer PET, HDPE, LDPE, and
glass, but found almost nothing about the oxygen permeability of PP (polypropylene). I'm
planning on aging a...

I'm dealing with a similar issue, but have thought of a different approach. I was planning on
buying some mineral stones and just leaving them in the water collection jug. I'm using a
