Here's mine. I was planning to use the new chest freezer that I bought for a keezer, but this
free fridge came along so the freezer ended up being a fermentation chamber. I'd care more
about looks if ...

I lowered the temperature and raised my pressure a couple psi last night. I'll report results
after I get around to bottling. I wouldn't think this thing would be as popular (and expensive)
as it is i...

I think my beer line is probably around 8 ft. as well. I don't really let them foam long. I cap
each bottle as I fill them. As far as bubbles in the beer line, I'm not sure. I'm not sure how

Brewed this as a 5 gallon batch on Saturday (8/22/15). Pitched with Wyeast labs German Ale 1007
since I was not going to use S-04 and didn't have the chance to Lager it with Oktoberfest 2333.

Maybe I should have said that a different way. I don't think the bottles are leaking gas over
time or anything. I think there's too much gas coming out of the beer when filling the bottles.
The beer l...

I recently got a beer gun, and have been less than impressed by the results. The bottled beer
just seems to not hold carbonation. The beer is carbonated the way I like it and pours great
from the fauc...

I can confirm that substituting 2-row for the pilsner (60 minute boil instead of 90), and using

Dumb question I know but please help me not look like a goon!I've never bought RO water from a

Posted in thread: I'll be in Charlottesville, VA. Breweries/bottle shops to check out? on 08-02-2015 at 09:54 PM
If you can swing it, go by 3 Brothers brewing in Harrisonburg. It might be an hour from
Charlottesville. Also, Starr Hill is in Charlottesville, but I haven't been there. 3 Brothers
is worth the drive...
Posted in thread: Is there a good way to stabilize a sight glass without using eyebolt? on 08-01-2015 at 11:15 AM
I bent a small piece of 3/8 stainless tubing into an elbow. The top of my sight tube fits over
it and is clamped with a hose clamp. I did drill a hole in the kettle for the other end of the
elbow to f...
