Posted in thread: What size tubing for Better Bottle blow off? on 05-23-2013 at 03:44 PM
I use a #10 stopper with a hole in it. I have no idea the size of the hole, but when I got the
stopper, I took it to the hardware store and bought a length of tubing that fit snugly in the
hole. As ha...

When I was still gainfully employed, rather than relying on the goodness of the US government
and my pension plan, I enjoyed Fridays. Since I "worked" on Saturday night and Sunday morning,
my "day off...

Posted in thread: Cleaning bottles? on 05-05-2013 at 05:39 PM

My pipeline ran close to dry right after Christmas. With the press of the holidays, I just
didn't get to brew. Since the New Year, however, I have been brewing regularly. I now have the

Now, you can't get rid of me! :drunk:Now, that begs a question! Who on this website is being so

for sure! E...
