  • Posted in thread: Why does Malt Liquor taste so bad? on 03-09-2013 at 01:27 AM
    I have made a malt liquor using cornstarch packing peanuts as the corn adjunct...Did he just
    say he brewed with packing peanuts?!?!:drunk:

    Gotta be honest though, working isn't really my thing...:mug:

    Trust me once you start kegging... you will eventually end up with more kegs than taps. A
    sticker on your keg that gives the recipe name, primary date, secondary info, and hydro

    Only worked with rubber ends.... seems a bit of a trivial complaint.I think most of get far

    to lift the door...

    Don't stress.Just follow Huff360's advice... no biggie.Ball lock release valves are overrated

    takes to unh...

    Yes, indeed!I started with four. Within 6 months I went to 8.Currently, I have 7 filled, 1
    empty.I think it depends on who you can share with. I only have a handful of friends who drink
    beer, or appre...
