    ABOUT ME

  • Libertyville, IL
  • James Bond,Bass guitar,BBQ. And something else that starts with a B. Hmmm...
  • The thing that both keeps me brewing and keeps me from brewing. Ironic, isn't it?
  • Let's say Iron Maiden. Not really my 'favorite', but it sounds cool.

    (Doesn't it?)
  • Bond series. Lord of the Rings series. Young Frankenstein. Raiders of the Lost Ark. Rocky.
  • TV sucks. See movies.
  • The Bible is a pretty good one.
  • I brew with:

    5-gallon cooler for a HLT. I use a little whirly sparger thing that sticks.

    10-gallon stainless steel lauter/mash tun. Got it from morebeer.com. The spigot is dumb. It points down from the kettle and isn't 'ridged' so the vinyl tubing constantly slides off, esp when heated. Which... um... DUH!?

    Basic infusion chiller which I need to improve upon.

    7 gallon glass primary and three 5-gallon secondaries, so I'm locked and loaded, ready to go!

    Still bottling at this point, but that's soon to be ancient history.
  • Some kind of Belgian Blonde meets APA concoction
  • St. Tibias' Fast Break Tripel
  • #1 - Moor Cage, English-style Barleywine
  • #1 - Simon the Sorcerer APA
    #2 - Dry, Dry Stout
  • Male
  • Married

    I just read though this sounds like a tough road you guys went on. I just got a second 10lb
    tank from LHBS for doing force carbs/leg cleaning outside my keezer. It's an older tank so is
    there any info...

    :mug:Thanks!:mug:(Perhaps my celebration is premature - a couple weeks will tell the tale for
    sure - but I'm feeling pretty confident we got our solution.)

    If I am being honest, I think the "culprit" is that you have a friend that cares a lot less
    about brewing good beer than you do.He's an odd bird, but he cares. He doesn't care for the
    process, doesn't...

    I give you guys credit for determination. After reading all of this thread I'm having a hard
    time adding up how many batches of beer you've had to throw out lolThanks for the credit. It's
    been a long,...

    This is purely a uneducated guess, but you could possible soak it in PBW/StarSan and then run
    Co2 through it to blast out any dislodged residue. I don't think there's anything to dislodge.
    I'm more co...

    Hello everyone. It is I, the OP, back to thank everyone for their best efforts, and to report
    some significant findings!We sampled a keg of his that was lagering, awaiting carbonation, and
    it tasted f...

    Maybe you already mentioned, does he use BLC?What is BLC? Beer line cleaner? If so, yes. I told
    him to replace his lines, which he did, and now he's using PBW to clean his lines after each
    keg.
