  • I had been wanting to brew for years and I randomly came across some free carboys. I borrowed pots and buckets until I had the needed stuff to brew. Once I brewed I was hooked. I brew all grain on a 5 gallon 3 vessel system that I've built up over time. I love to brew American ales and age specialty ales on wood. I'm a big seasonal beer drinker so I usually brew to the season and brew various styles within the season. I've been brewing for 4 years and I continue to get better, expand and upgrade my equipment, and come up with some pretty good recipes. I just got into kegging about a year ago and it's great to have the freshest IPA's at home that you can't find anywhere else. Homebrewtalk has been a saving grace! This forum is awesome.

    You could totally go outside the box (the beer box, anyway) and put something like a cider on
    the 5th tap.Another idea would be to make that 5th tap a smaller keg, like 2.5 gallons, which
    might give y...

    Damn! Pretty slick man. Looks great. I can't wait to have something like this that I can brew

    starting with the ttb and your state/city/county authorities would be a good place to start.
    That way you can see what situation would best fit what you want to do.Can you self distribute
    in your stat...

    You could make any kind of darker beer with that. Have you used steeping grains yet? They can
    add a little more complex flavors and even some body to the beer.Doing a quick look in the
    recipe section ...

    Just put the newest brew on the empty tap. Brew another - whatever strikes your fancy at the
    time and but it on the next empty tap etc.... Why limit yourself to certain beers???It's a
    personal thing. ...

    I forgot about saison's. I don't really drink them too much but maybe I can put them in the
    lighter tap or even seasonal tap.Thanks all for the responses! It's cool to see what everyone
    else does with...

    I use the big one.......... the monster that is so heavy it's all I can do to lift it...It
    weighs just under 200 pounds full. It serves me to force carbonate as well as serving as a
    welding tank. It's...

    I've read on here that c02 from welding shops isn't food grade safe but I have no experience
    with that.Do any of your other beers have this off flavor? Do you use your city's water or do
    you buy your ...

    From another thread i read on here the coffee people frown upon beergas as they claim that co2
    gives coffee an acidic flavor very rapidly.Some are using straight nitro and claiming that they
    are getti...

    I just read that e-book myself. I'd be really interested in hearing a first hand account of
    someone trying the nitro coffee for the first time. I've yet to try one but I love coffee and I
    know nitro w...
