  • Started homebrewing in Jan '08 after getting a beginner's kit from SWMBO for Christmas. First brew was a Kolsch that turned out dark and hoppy like an IPA due to high alkalinity of my well water. Got sick of bottling after the third batch and got a keg system for my fourth. After about a year, started all-grain brewing. I now have fermentation temp control, and will be trying out lagers soon.

    Anyway, nobody was hurt and the bottle of Westvleteren 12 I had right next to the growler that
    exploded survived unharmed, albeit with a smudgy label. Please be safe y'all.When did
    Westvleteren start ...

    And we've extended our sale for our friends at HBT too. We ordered 312 lbs of nano tech acrylic
    for our see through signs and should be good through the holidays, but we do book up this time
    of year. ...

    I transport my carboys in milk crates. No problems for years.What about when you wash them out?
    Don't you have to take them out of the crates?

    I'm kind of curious if this would be any safer than a glass carboy in the case of breakage? The
    advantage of being able to reach into it to clean it doesn't change the fact that you'd still
    have to pi...

    DuClaw makes "Sweet Baby Jesus" chocolate peanut butter porter. The peanut part tastes very
    artificial to me, not sure how they add it. The base beer itself also doesn't really work for
    me. Overall it...

    My 8-gallon pot still has a black residue from the first time I used my SQ14 burner. The smoke
    smelled terrible and I eventually took the pot off to allow the paint to burn away so it
    wouldn't stain u...

    Oh man I didn't realize these were glass! I think it's pretty awesome. I wish I could get one
    without the price of shipping :pThat's easy. Just drive to Northern Brewer and pick one up
    in-store. :)

    The east coast warehouse is the Best. Thing. Ever. My last order from B3 was at least 3 years
    ago. I'm in NJ and it just seemed silly to order from a place literally across the country when
    I could ge...

    Those will not stick?They're "forward-sealing" which means there isn't liquid sitting in the
    faucet to dry out and get sticky.
