    I'm curious for all of the vintage stand up refrigerator people, how many kegs are you able to
    fit in there? I'd like to trade in my chest freezer and refinish an old fridge, but would
    really like to ...

    Thanks again. I took a gravity reading yesterday (10 days after brew day) and it is at 1.005.
    Tasted the sample and it tasted good. I figured it would draw out more fermentables, but wasn't
    sure of an...

    Thanks all for the replies. I'll report back after I've taken a sample.

    I did mash for 60 minutes after reaching 152. I'm wondering what effect, if any, it'll have
    soaking the grains in the coolish water for the 20 minutes or so that it took to reach my mash
    temp. I've ne...

    A couple of weeks ago I brewed a partial mash Porter. I had a fairly short window of time to
    brew and wasn't thinking it through clearly enough. Unfortunately, I added the grains to the
    cold water, li...

    Nice! I scored that exact same BL handle from my local watering hole. I mentioned to the
    owner/bartender I was building a kegerator and if she had any extra tap handles...BOOM. She
    just gave it to me.

    After much cleaning, sanding, general tearing apart and painting, I came up with this: to some
    issues with the black appliance paint, most of the door is chalkboard paint so the texture is a
    little b...

    I can finally contribute here! After years of bottling, I decided to finally start kegging. I
    won a few bucks from PCH and that was the excuse I needed. I convinced SWMBO that we would
    still have bill...

  • Posted in thread: Building 100% custom keg fridge? Surely someone has done it? on 10-15-2015 at 02:31 PM
    An alternative I've seen on here is to use a room/window air conditioner with a temp
    controller. Seems like much less work than tearing apart an old fridge or freezer. You'd just
    need a way to vent th...

  • Posted in thread: Where to buy equipment? on 10-04-2015 at 06:52 PM
    I just bought a bunch of stuff from these two places to convert a vintage Westinghouse fridge
    (circa 1950). I searched around for what I wanted and split the order due to some things being
    better pric...
