  • I only brew my own recipes. I piece together recipes from the little nuances of different beer styles that I like. I have only ruined one batch of beer ever, and that was only because it over-carbonated in the bottles (the beer actually tasted great... just too foamy). I ended up giving that batch to a homeless guy near my house... and let me tell you, he was very happy to get two free cases of beer (I'm sure there was a party under the bridge that night). My favorite (store bought) beers are Sam Adams, Dogfish Head, Guinness/Smithwicks, and Real Ale.

    I love it! I used it at a party last weekend, and the tower cools just fine (forms
    condensation). I think there is even enough room to add a 3rd shank/faucet, but the tower will
    definitely need to be ...

    I ordered an elbow shank from micromatic... and the answer is, no, they are not all the same
    size. The new one was 7/8" diameter, the old one (that came with the tower) was much smaller (I
    believe it ...

    I have a kegerator I got off of CL for $50. I want a dual-faucet tower so I can dispense two
    different homebrews at once, but I don't want to drop $100+ on a new one. I decided to try to
    add another s...

    Cool idea!Once you get the design finished, you can buy printable label paper that has a
    moisture activated adhesive on the back. You just print like 9 per page and cut them up. They
    work great, but t...

    I think It would be a lot easier for you to just buy one of the sanke snap rings and use the
    keg with its current valve system in place.Yeah, I think that would be easier than welding, but
    I would sti...
