  • I've been toying with the idea of home brewing for a couple of decades. Then I found out that a friend of mine brewed and sat in on several brew sessions. I was hooked. Then I found that a new in-law also brewed. He was kind enough to donate some equipment, and my wife bought the rest of the gear I needed as a birthday gift. The history.

    Update: When I discovered the spontaneous fermentation on Tuesday, I had already opened my
    smack-pack of 1056. I went ahead and pitched it into the bubbling wort. What did I have to lose
    at that point...

    I love my 6-keg keezer, but being the semi-neatfreak that I am, the jumble of tubing is driving
    me bonkers! What do my fellow keezer-owners use to organize your beer lines? Does anyone make a
