I have used the tap a draft for almost a year. I love it. I don't have the space for a keezer,
and I really don't go through enough beer to justify it. Plus, you can buy a styrofoam cooler
and cut out...

FWIW...I fermented my last batch at 58, and I definitely felt like I picked up some

Why stay away from the epsom salts...what are the negative effects? When I play around with

I crushed the graham crackers and put them in the mash. The film was very fine...if the beer

I wish I would have taken a picture but I didnt. I opened up a bottle to see if I could be more
