    With the low and slow method it usually takes my beers 2.5 weeks to get where they should be,
    carbonation-wise. That doesn't stop me from drinking them along the way, though...

    Birdman has decent prices. Also check out Adventures in Homebrewing and Farm House Brewing
    Supply. Don't forget to factor in shipping when you shop because that will often be the
    difference in terms o...

    I have fermented full batches with a sanitized foil cover on my bucket fermentor. I was nervous
    the whole time but it worked perfectly and there was no contamination. The fermentation even

    I sort of had limited funds to spend, too, and decided to go with the taprites. My thought
    process was similar. "Buy once and be happy" - in buying brewing gear I think the best advice
    is to envision ...

    I can only say I like my taprites, but I don't have any other brands. My brother in law has a
    cheapy regulator that I occasionally have to adjust, and I hate it. However, a good regulator
    is one that ...

    quickly and the set a bottle down that happens to me once in awhile, too, even with commercial
