  • I have wanted to brew for the last 8 years, but temporary living situations, and a 4 year stint in Germany (right on the belgian border) kept me from assembling all the crap needed to brew until August 2013. I started all-grain and kegging right away, and thus wanted to build a nice system I can grow into. I also am a handy woodworker and have some wiring/engineering knowledge from work.

    FWIW, I use nylon bag type and dont have any issues. I like that i can swish the bag around
    every so often to ensure good mixing a hops and wort.

    I love WLP 565, I start that at 68 and ramp it up to 90, makes a great brew. The trappist
    strain (3787?) does great in the heat, as does the belgian ardennes strain. All would make a
    great blonde.

    I'm not as good as many out there, so I'm sure you'll get more ideas but I would dig into your
    keezer and try and read the power specs on the actual compressor motor. A lot of things like
    motors can h...

    oh for the dip tube I took them apart, did similar HOT PBW soaks, then assembled the keg again
    and ran all the hot PBW from the keg out the tube by filling with my air compressor. worked
    well for me.

    I once got a keg with Chinese writing on the outside and a bunch of sand and gravel and nasty
    water inside! Dont sweat it, fill it with REALLY hot water and PBW and soak for as long as a
    day, rinse wi...
