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

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

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.)
Posted in thread: Looking for a good ingredient supplier on 05-05-2014 at 07:54 PM
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 ...
