  • Tried this hobby years ago. It did not work out for me then. Got a kit Xmas '10 and found it to be better than the last try. I did 10-12 extract batches, then switched to all grain. I have done about 30 batches so far with some very good results, some clunkers along the way also.

  • Posted in thread: Honey flavoured beer HELP NEEDED on 03-13-2016 at 01:58 AM
    I just tried a honey kolsch from Rogue brewery today. It has a faint honey taste. Maybe contact
    them to see how they use it. Late in the fermentation would be my guess, but I am sure it will
    take off ...

  • Posted in thread: Looking for a little bite on 02-03-2016 at 01:53 AM
    I recently tried to make a Spotted Cow clone. The attempt was close, but as I tried it against
    a bottled of SC, I noticed it had a little tartness, or bite to it that mine didn't. I am not
    sure if I c...

    I used a 1/2" stainless tube bent at a 90 degree angle. I threaded a hole in the lid and used a
    plastic compression fitting that was drilled out to let the tube slide down. This way I can
    stay above t...

    I do like yours with the wheels. I wish I had handles at the top, but it is not bad to move
    empty and I'm not going to try it full. i ferment and transfer in the same place, only move to
    clean. Enjoy ...

    The tube are 3/4 inch blow off, not really needed with all the extra headspace. A 1/4" ball
    valve for co2 inlet and 1/2" adjustable diptube for beer transfer. The 8 inch tri clover makes
    it very easy ...

  • Posted in thread: Upside down Sanke keg fermentor on 12-04-2015 at 11:16 AM
    I made a fermenter from a discarded Sanke keg. Welded 3 legs on the bottom to raise it up,
    welded an 8 inch tri clover fitting on the bottom, now the top. I drilled all my holes for
    transfer tubing th...

  • Posted in thread: Why do you home brew? on 05-03-2015 at 02:11 PM
    I also like the DIY aspects of brewing. I seem to enjoy making some of the equipment as much as
    I like to brew. I like it when I give someone a brew that has never tried a homebrew and they
    say "hey t...

    You might be able to down to a 4", even if you can't get your arm all the way in you could get
    a brush in to clean it, or soak with pbw flush and rinse. The stainless cleans pretty easy if
    done right ...
