  • Started homebrewing in January 2012. SWMBO got me a kit for Christmas and been heavily addicted since. Went from extract to Extract/specialty grains, to partial mash, tried BIAB and currently doing all grain 5gallon batches. rnRecently started kegging(2 batches) and already upto 3 5gallon cornies. Only 1 tap in kegerator so far. But there is always another piece of equipment needing upgrading :)

    carbed ke...

    Before I start I want to say I have found the best way to carb is to set it and forget it
