    I went cheap and got a wine degasser at my LHBS. Been using it for over 6 years and haven't had

    Try another bag. The Quality Control at foodsaver for their bags is atrocious. Out of 25 bags
    in a box, 5 will not hold a vacuum. Reusing? Even worse, maybe 25% fail the second go around.
    This is my e...

    I built my own with no regrets. If your just building a tube with no electronics, can't beat
    the price. I used Sawdustguys design. Link has part numbers and vendors.

    I think everything creeps up in price. Beer is just one of them. I so rarely go to the 'beer'

    In my opinion....You can't go wrong with any combo of the "C" hops. However, Citra I only use
