  • Started about 15 years ago with my roommate who was way more into it than I was. Started up again about 5 years ago doing extracts and then up to all grain. Still do extracts in winter when I'm too much of a wus to stand out in the cold for an hour.

  • Posted in thread: Damaged corny keg? on 01-09-2017 at 05:25 PM
    We recently moved and I finally decided to dig out my kegging equipment. I just noticed that
    during the move the "out" post on my corny keg has a slight dent in it. Based on this photo,
    can you tell w...

  • Posted in thread: Keggerator system recommendation? on 01-06-2017 at 03:04 PM
    Can anyone recommend a good keggerator system? I'm looking for a fridge with two tap handles
    built for corny kegs? Any brands that are better than others?

  • Posted in thread: Heading to Chicago for the holidays, any beer recommendations? on 12-19-2016 at 10:20 PM
    Have been to Chicago the last few years for Christmas and always try to find new beers to try.
    I probably won't have time to make it out to any breweries so readily available recommendations
    are appre...

  • Posted in thread: opinions on moving from extract to all grain on 12-19-2016 at 03:04 PM
    I've done both successfully. This is just my humble opinion but for me BIAB is a much better
    alternative to the typical 3 tier system. Both make great beer but BIAB is easier, less
    equipment, less mes...

    My old homebrew shop only sold White Labs so I've always been used to that brand. We moved and
    my new HBS sells Wyeast.Do you all use the smack pack when making starters or is that only used
    if you're...

  • Posted in thread: Chocolate extract in secondary on 12-15-2016 at 10:26 PM
    No need to use a secondary to add the chocolate extract. Add it to your sanitized keg and rack
    on top of it or if bottling, add to the bottling bucket with your priming sugar.Cool, thanks! I
    will try ...

  • Posted in thread: Chocolate extract in secondary on 12-15-2016 at 09:45 PM
    Has anyone ever put chocolate extract in their secondary? I'm going to be brewing a stout and
    wanted to give this a shot. Last time I used cocoa nibs that were soaked in vodka. It turned
    out good but ...

    I'd much rather a nice belgian or hefe. Mmmmm Tripel Karmeliet...Myself as well. I would love
    to see more Belgians on the shelves. I do love a good IPA but they totally dominate the shelf
    space in any...

    The market seems to be moving towards gimicky off shoots of established brands with the intent
    to get you to try something new rather than just continue to buy that same ol' pale
    ale...grapefruit this...

  • Posted in thread: Too Many Brands On The Shelf on 12-14-2016 at 07:56 PM
    How do new breweries make it in today's brewing market? Anytime I'm at the liquor store there
    are more and more brands on the shelf. I think the market is over-saturated with craft beer. I
    don't know ...
