  • A friend introduced me into the world of home brewing with meads and simple wines. I fell in love with it and started making beer about a year later. Now I've built a kegerator and a force-carb setup and am brewing all grain. I love every minute of it.

    Excellent! Thank you so much for the advice. I think I'll just not worry too much about any

    You probably could. I used temporary styrofoam blocks to lift the cold plate and poured 20lb of
    ice over the top. By the end of the weekend, the cold plate was sitting in water, with ice
    still on top....

    I can say that this thing has been working great for us! We have used it at a few camping trips
    (CHA fest at Lake Casitas) where day time temps are getting up to mid-high 80's and the kegs
    are sitting...

    I have a question about ice and the cold plate. I have seen where people suggest keeping the

    as cost and not...
