  • Posted in thread: One problem with collars on 06-24-2015 at 05:37 PM
    About a decade ago, I built a keezer based on a 5 cuft chest freezer. I built the collar so it
    was easily removable, knowing that the freezer would die in time. It served me well until last
    winter. So...

    It's a great dashcam, the night recording is better than it looks on the built-in screen. The
    only problem is lousy documentation, but there are a couple online guides by people who have
    explored all ...

    They could boost the IBUs using a tetrahydroisoalpha-acids solution, like YC-Tetra. But I doubt

    Call your local university's ag department; check continuing education for a home orchard
    society. My local HOS has a identification fair every year. Turns out the old tree on my

    I left a batch of blackberry cider in the fermentor too long. Soured so bad I burned my throat
    tasting it! After draining the bucket, I popped the lid and there was a huge vinegar mother. I
    had just d...

  • Posted in thread: Boil problems - Propane pressure? on 01-19-2015 at 02:45 AM
    There is also the problem of heat transfer through the wall/bottom; as the tank empties very
    little liquid propane is in contact with the wall. Typically the bottle is sitting on the
    ground or concret...

    Accurately carbonating with liquid CO2 is much more difficult than using gas. With liquid CO2,
    you don't have a simple way to control the pressure and small changes in volume can cause large
    changes i...

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!" "I would like to die on Mars, just not on impact." Elon Musk
