    Meh, if it's $60 for one of these plastic sankeys, and ~$90 for a stainless 5 gallon sankey, I
    think I'll spend the extra thirty bucks. Not because of safety concerns, but because I know the
    steel wil...

    For myself the DIY aspect can mean quite a lot. I have a decent background in electronics,
    microcontrollers, and mechanical engineering. I've built my own pump box, stir plate,
    fermentation chamber, c...

    I'd put a splitter on the CO2 line so You can have two gas connections for your kegs- one for
    the one currently in tap and one on the keg that is still carbonating. This way you don't have

    The ball lock kegs I've been seeing at my LHBS are fatter and shorter than my cornies, so I
    don't know if they are all the same anymore?? I've found a 3 inch clearance above the keg works
    great for my...

  • Posted in thread: Ideas for sight glass material using hose barbs? on 12-03-2011 at 02:26 AM
    I thought about a sight glass for my boil kettle, but ended up just getting a long aluminum
    extrusion and used a dremel to mark off every gallon put into the kettle. Now I just dip my
    "truth stick" in...

    The fermenter is in the garage, so no added heat to the apartment proper. I have a window AC in
    my bedroom, but hate to turn it on too often because it adds about $50 to the electric bill. My
