Posted in thread: Anyone know what fitting I need here? on 03-04-2012 at 10:09 PM
My previous two pull-out style faucets have had a standard 1/2" (or something like that) femail

Posted in thread: Good Westmalle Dubbel Clone anyone? on 06-23-2011 at 12:29 AM
My wife got me some new beers for Father's Day last weekend (I know...how awesome is she?), and

I was able to find Brown malt at one of my LHBS. The owner of the other store didn't even know

Posted in thread: 5 Gallon main fermenter? on 03-30-2009 at 11:30 PM
