  • WaukeshaCty, WI
  • Been involved in many aspects of homebrewing and brewing, I am a SERIOUS hardware conneusseur and have created many useful items for brewers and myself. I may start a few threads and put some of these fine items out there for the hardware fabrication inclined, which there are certainly many here. I also enjoy music production and high end audio design, fabrication and usage. Not to mention REAL BBQ, having built my own 55 gal SS smoker based on the Texas Hibachi design. And in my spare time ( haha ) I do MicroCamping and Stained Glass. Then theres....
  • Too many!
  • Buil,ding diagnostic imaging equipment.
  • What I am listening to at the moment, but I'm sure you probably haven't heard of them.
  • What, sit down for 2 hours and do nothing?
  • Stupid stuff, Adult Swim, Comedy.
  • Whatever can teach me something.
  • Well when I discovered microbrews in the early '80s, I decided that I could save money by homebrewing.... Hahah. Never thought of the cost of all this SS I own. But my friends consistently say 'This is the best beer I have ever had' so I guess its all worth it. I make beer, wine, mead, vinegar, cider and whatever else I can think of. I am now in the process of making a 55 gal brewery.

    So one question, did you leave the rollers with the flat surfaces, or was that prep for
    lathing. I would think the more flat surfaces the better the crush. Do you know what your
    roller gap is, if its ...

    Putting wood around the cooler is possible on the rear, but the other sides are where your
    condenser is for cooling. My collar extends out the front 16", and the 'bar' is in the rear,
    with wood decora...

    The idea for the taps inside the freezer came from the idea of if it could be made without
    putting any holes in the freezer. I know this could be done using a collar. Although this will
    be in a game r...

    Well lets look and see how this will likely be used. WHen you first come up with the great
    creation it is so much fun to show your friends, but when practicality kicks in, My bet is that
    it will sit o...

    I noticed the other day that some seat posts for bicycles are knurled. Could probably scrounge
    a few behind a bike shop.... Personally I'm gonna go the pasta maker route. My wife gave me the
    go ahead ...

    Seen a few homemade concrete mills and the results have been fine. One point not clearly
    mentioned is the drive rod you put through should have some pins drilled or welded on leftover
    hardware or such...

    The dusty looking clumps of bubbles have the appearance of Brettanomyces. I have seen bubbles
    6" around in some of my Lambics after about 6 months or so. If so, the characteristic leather
    and horse bl...

    Whens the last time you cleaned beer lines. Sounds like a beer line issue to me. First beer
    tastes bad, then you get the line cleared and new beer from keg. Ive seen that on my system
    when Im bad on l...
