  • It all started with a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas. After 4 batches of nasty, near undrinkable beer, I gave up. Almost two years later I connected with a friend that was into brewing and named off a couple websites. After coming across and ordering myself a kit I am now obsessed. I am currently set up with a 3-tier keggle setup doing 5 and 10 gallon AG batches. I love it!

    Well fellas, website is up and orders are being accepted! Sorry about the price bump, but we
    are really happy with the robustness of the final design. Several breweries have been using it
    now for a wh...

    I've used fresh and frozen. Frozen will work just fine. Just let them thaw out, put them in a
    mesh bag to contain the seeds, and add it to the fermenter after fermentation has slowed or
    stopped.Even i...

    First time posting photos on here, so please excuse me if they don't attach correctly.I just
    finished my keezer build a couple months ago. I went with 1.5" cherry, 1.5" foam backing, and
    then wrapped ...

    I've had quite a few homebrewed berliner weisse that have this problem. As said above, if you
    don't do a good job keeping oxygen out or proper temperatures, you can let other bacteria take
    over and yo...

    All 3 of your photos look like the beer is still fermenting. All, or at least most of the
    krausen "head" should fall....usually. Generally you will want to leave it in primary a minimum
    of about a wee...

    Are you using a spring loaded bottle filler? When I was bottling, I'd rinse the bottle filler
    out but never bothered to take it apart. I didn't know it came apart for the longest time lol.
    When I fina...

    Not sure about in your neck of the woods, but I used to work for a distributor and we'd rent
    empties occasionally - so it's worth a try.Agreed, it's worth a shot. Just tell them that
    you're a homebrew...

  • Posted in thread: Temp controller fluctuations? on 08-08-2016 at 11:50 PM
    2 degree fluctuation should be fine. If your controller turns on and off every time it drops a
    degree it will put extra wear and tear on your freezer compressor. But also like stated above,
    a thermowe...

    Also, I brewed beer for a friends wedding once. He rented a kegerator and I told him to call
    the place to see if they had the option of a ball lock setup, which they did for no extra
    charge. I'd call ...

    Buy a keg of your favorite commercial beer and drink it up before the wedding. Fill it with
    your homebrew, use the adapters, and then return the keg to the retailer after the wedding.
