Posted in thread: Getting into kegging without a dedicated fridge (3g cornies) on 08-01-2011 at 03:15 PM
The bottom shelf of my garage fridge has a 2.5g cornie, a small regulator, a 20oz paintball CO2
bottle, and a picnic tap. I usually force carb but in an odd way, I guess. When I brew, I fill

Try to catch a game at Wrigley. What a great little ball park! Unlike some parks nowadays, they
still have the beer guys walking through the stands. While they are only selling Old Style and
Bud, a co...

The 2.5s fit easily in a standard fridge and still allow room for other stuff. If you don't

beach, or lake...

I purged the keg and topped it up to 20# and sat it aside for a month. It was still under a

closet. The sec...

I recently brewed a AG Kolsch. At bottling time, I split it into two mini-kegs, force carbing
the first, and putting a co2 blanket on the other and set it aside for about a month. The first
was a nice...
Posted in thread: Boathouse Brown Ale on 06-19-2011 at 02:22 PM
I just built a new boathouse on Lake Guntersville this year. For Father's Day, my wife
commissioned a very cool (IMHO) custom boat house sign for me in the style of a beer label. As
my last name is Br...

Just an update. I have been drinking this kegged Kolsch for the last week, after a month in the
primary. It turned out pretty good, I think. Crisp and mostly clear. Somewhat reminiscent of a

A little saran wrap cover and the fridge are all you need. I just finished primary fermentation
