    Been getting a foam problem that was only resolved when I finally cleaned my beer lines. At the
    time I used some BLC solution in an empty corny keg and gassed it up to push it through the
    line and fau...

    I had to adjust it as it arrived a bit off (wider at one end). .038 is what I've used for my
    first few brews with it. I still hand crank as I've been too cheap to by the low-speed drill

    I've been brewing for almost 3 years, most of which has been all-grain via Denny Conn's
    cooler-tun/batch sparging method. I have private well water here on the MA/NH border. I know we
    had a basic test...

    My Mosaic IPA used Mosaic and Chinook (2-to-1 ratio) at 20, 5, and dryhop. 1 oz Mosaic at 20
    and 5, and then 2 oz Mosaic in the dry hop (half those amounts of Chinook at same times). It
    was fruity as ...

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Why is that? I love Reds Rye!Founders wasn't happy with how Red's

    After 16 days (last week dryhopping in secondary with 2 oz Mosaic, 1 oz Chinook) it's down to

    Finally getting into making my kegerator. Got an old ('90) GE kitchen fridge that used to be my
