  • I used to make beer back in the early sixties when all I could find was Rlue Ribbon hopped malt in a can . Gave it up for obvious reasons after many years and have started up after seeing what's available once. Only this time around I'm using today's methods and ingredients. rnrnReasons are simple. Not too many real options out there (without spending a ton on craft brews) for really dark beers that have more to them than alcohol content and weak flavor profiles. OMO

    50 Level feet will not require that much pressure so most any food safe hose is fine. You are
    dealing with sweet cooled wort and a 50 foot run will require very careful sanitation even more
    than a 50 ...

    I have the new one and use it the most. If I want to get another brew going while it's full I

    or racking...

    I love to watch the olympics- but I wish it was showing more sports instead of certain

    a bit of sports th...
