  • Besides brewing? Scuba

  • My friend is a homebrewer. he always had fermenters and corney kegs around his place. So while we would be using his garage for band practice, I'd sneak off from behind the drums to sample what was in the keg. Eventually I acquired "The Joy of Homebrewing" and received a homebrewing kit for Christmas. That has grown to my current setup of a 5 and 10 gal Gott cooler for mash/lauter tuns. 20 gal stainless boil pot. I now have 7 corney kegs. one 6.5 gal carboy, two 5 gal carboys plastic buckets, and a fastferment conical. A dedicated refrigerator/fermentation chamber in the garage, a Malt crusher malt mill. and my home made counter flow chiller. rn There is also this 4 tap keezer dispensing homebrew in the house.

    notes, complimented by the bourbon oak vanilla flavor and chocolate from the nibs. Wish I

    I just spent an interesting, enjoyable, but ultimately fruitless morning trying to figure out
    how to add security to the BrewPi implementation. Is there a currently commonly accepted method
    to do this...

    Good point day tripper. That in fact is what I did. I had an extra reed switch in my tool box
    from my old alarm days. If your going to use the door switch that's built in you will need to
    disconnect t...

    Was this a kit? I plugged your numbers into Beersmith, and 3.75 Lb of DME into 6 gal of water
    resulted in an OG of 1.028. Granted its been 20 years since I've made an extract beer. But I
    think you may...

    I used Kilz for a base coat then sprayed krylon over the top of that. I don't think you need to
    be too worried about the amount of heat with those burner arrangements.
