  • I got into homebrewing because I love craft beer and got very involved in it. Homebrewing was the next progression naturally, and honestly I enjoy brewing the beer as much drinking it(if not more). I've only brewed a few batches, and am still VERY new to brewing, but I'm a quick study. My current setup is just for extract/partial mash, but includes a 6 gallon aluminum pot, propane burner(45k BTU's), 2 6 gallon better bottles, 8 cases of bottles, and my newest addition: GE 7.0 Cu.Ft. chest freezer with a Johnson A419 Controller(my newest joy). I'm hoping to go all-grain by the end of the year.

    exploding plastic keg recently killed a brewery worker. Bottle bombs are certainly still a
    possibility and ...

    The benefits are:(1) You can't possibly mess up the carbonation, altho moving to glass could
    prove otherwise.If anything, I would think you're more likely to "mess up the carbonation" than
    with a prop...

    Still purchasing my equipment, just picked up a temp controller and I'm going freezer shopping

    Building one of these this weekend. Problem is my kettle is wider than keggles, don't think I
    can get away with 6" bolts. I'll have to measure tonight. What other option would be best? All

    Is there a specific code we need to use for this? Leave a note when ordering? Just a little
    fuzzy on those details, for when I have the money and things are in stock.
