    ABOUT ME

  • 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.

    If the beer is already carbonated, be extremely careful putting anything into it! The hops,
    bag, strainer, etc. will create nucleation sites and could cause excessive foaming. Whatever
    method you use ...

    I use 2 small rare earth magnets... one inside and one outside to hold onto each other. This
    worked wonderfully in kegs, although now I mostly dry hop in carboys as my kegs are O2-free
    zones. Still wo...

    You can just attach a little worm clamp to the PVR valve on the inside of the keg lid, tie the
    hop bag up to that, no welding required.this sounds like a winner.Also, like i stated in the
    intro, I don...

    I would never use a ping pong ball. It is definitely not food grade plastic. Most ping pong
    balls smell like crap too. Would not want that floating in my beer.I did not think of this!
    Looks like i'll ...

    well I guess I should clarify: in the past i've done dry hop additions of just 4 days in the
    carboy before kegging. I want to stick to the 4-day addition so my process stays the same. Thus
    I was think...

    I just tie a 1 gallon paint strainer bag shut as close to the top as possible and toss it into
    the keg. I have done this twice with no problems. I didn't hang it or float it or anything
    else.....so th...

    I dont brew many hoppy beers (mostly belgians, british, german), but I have a second keg of
    pale-ale I want to serve for a party in a few weeks. I held off dry-hopping when kegging 4
    weeks ago.I know ...

    I know this is an older post, but I am looking into building a side by side, as they seem like
    a pretty efficient means of serving and temp control.- How are you liking this setup nearly two
    years lat...

    Looks good! Nice work. Right now i'm only using a 2 gallon bucket on the hump (still haven't
    made a bigger reservoir from HVAC ducting like I intended), but I agree the system does great
    at maintainin...

    looks like those fancy SS mash tuns that Brulosopher uses, why dont try it for a mash tun? are
    you concerned the welds are so bad you can't clean it?
