    It shouldn't be that big of a deal because the mashing process is pre-boil. After an hour boil,
    any bacteria potentially picked up from the tun will be long-cooked. Still, take care to clean
    the tun a...

    a look at that. You'd want to use a combo of rubber and steel washers on either side of your
    hole to make a good seal. Yes, you need to mod your manifold a little, but this ought to give
    you a nice ...

    I'd recommend a weldless ball valve attached to the cooler with rubber gaskets. Sealant is a
    pain and doesn't hold up over time.

    I did some more research on it this afternoon, and indeed it seems that alcohol can be
    encapsulated by a cyclodextrine and rendered into a powder. Apparently you can even do this
    with some tapioca mal...

    Several news sources are reporting that the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has
    approved a product called "Palcohol", which purports itself to be... wait for it... powdered
    alcohol. They clai...

    It looks like the next time the Jonesboro Area Brewers are getting together may be May 3, which
    is Big Brew Day. I'll be sending out more details soon, but right now the plan is to have
    people set up ...

    How well does your cup warmer work? I'm thinking that would be a good solution for me as
    well.It raises the temperature a good 20 degrees or so. Unfortunately, if the outside temps dip
    too low for too...

    One additional note to add is that I think it really depends on your relationship with the
    owner/bartender (no matter the liquor laws). If you have a good relationship/friendship with
    them and let the...

    Interesting! I hadn't heard of 2-Methylisoborneol (MIB) before. From some of the (very brief,
    not-at-all-coming-from-a-place-of-experience-so-tell-me-to-shut-up-if-I'm-wrong) reading I've
    done, it see...
