    I finally took the plunge and made my first one. I was considering the purchase of a miter saw
    for this project and future ones, but decided to just do it with the handsaw so I didn't have
    to lay down...

  • Posted in thread: Does anyone not use a blow off tube? on 06-02-2014 at 03:07 AM
    I brew mostly 5 gallon batches in 6 gallon buckets, or 10g batches in my conical. I never use a
    blow-off. I use S-05 dry yeast a lot, and ferment in my temp-controlled chest freezer. Never
    really had ...

    As long as you purge the O2 from the keg before transferring the beer, you'll be fine. Pressure
    it up just as you would with a full keg, and it will carb just fine.

  • Posted in thread: Anyone ever use the Leaktite lids from Home Depot? on 05-16-2014 at 05:38 PM
    I bought a lot of 10 of the white buckets and the standard airtight lids for grain storage from
    Home Depot. The 5 gallon ones will fit 25# of grain, and seal up nice and tight.Last year, I
    bought thre...

  • Posted in thread: Deaerating make up water with co2? on 05-12-2014 at 06:01 AM
    I wouldn't personally make a beer "concentrate," then purposely water it down. I would like
    just make a 4 gallon batch instead of 5.That being said, with filling the keg full of water,
    where would all...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling after cold conditioning. on 05-07-2014 at 04:39 AM
    I do the same. All my beers are cold conditioned first, then I bottle and leave them inside at
    room temp. Usually carbonated in a week or so. Never had a problem.Depending on the ABV of your
    brew, I s...

    Welcome to the hobby! You could probably get a 5g pot fairly cheap, compared to the cost of a
    10gallon. In the unlikely event you don't get into the hobby, a 5g pot is still small enough to
    use for co...

    I actually experimented with this last night. I had it in-line, and it did not work very well.
    (The hose I use is actually 2 short hoses, which I use a 90 degree elbow to connect together.)

    Give us a look! I started out selling just recipe kits, but have expanded to include grains and
    hops as well. For your situation, where you need 1.1lbs of a grain, I am developing a way to
    add what I ...
