    In BYO Magazine (Nov 2012 page 48), John Blichmann suggested home brewers should have a proper

    I keep a keg of water on tap... all my beers can be under 5% if I want. And the kids like to
    drink the "fizzy water".If you don't keg then this was no help.

    Oxyclean) stand over night3) hose out the keg (save the Oxyclean in my mop bucket for the

    First batch and you need a larger kettle... moohoohahaha welcome to home brewing. Get ready to
    spend 2K @ $200 a pop. Then say what just happened?

    I love a hoppy American Stout... Nothern Brewer, Columbus and Centennial are my favorite hops
