If you guessed me you are correct! I have been brewing for about a year or so but this is my
first adventure into kegging. Here is my goal...I eventually want to run two 5lb corny kegs in
a converted ...
Posted in thread: Bourbon Dubbel oak chip additions? on 11-04-2012 at 04:13 PM

The Iron Rat Stout is delicious. I'm at TBBC from time to time, that's what I prefer when I'm
