  • 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.

    have a keg tapped at all times and one on deck.Looking good everyone!

  • Posted in thread: Is using Hop Extract "Craft Brewing"? on 03-22-2015 at 02:34 AM
    I used to think of it as cheating when it first came out. Now I think it's a old man way of
    thinking about it. Technology changes products and procedures so I dont think its really
    cheating in that se...

    I use about 5 ft of line on my kegs and I don't have that issue at all. I force carb at about
    20 psi and carefully shake the keg for a few minutes then leave it for 3 days or so. I then put
    it down to...

    Wow, what a cool keg! I was going to say it looks sort of like a cask but then I saw the above
