    I think that your cherry flavor is low for two reasons.1. Using Crystal instead of Flaked
    rice/corn. The crystal adds stronger flavors that reduce your perception of the fruit.2. Not
    enough cherry. 3l...

    6 ft of line is short in general not sure about nitro. For my standard setup I need 20 ft at 12

    Looks like a good start, but I would swap out the last hops for something else - I think the

    supposed to and it *may* give better hop utilization.

    Here's my Porter recipe: https://www.brewtoad.com/recipes/2016-robusted-porterI go back and

    That one looks like it work, I made one like soccerdad did with a dremel tool. I used a spark
    plug socket that was in a big set that I had.
