Posted in thread: Temps for secondary on tripel on 12-19-2013 at 02:25 PM

HI everyone, I have access to these great buckets from my work. They have screw tops with
rubber o-ring/gaskets just like the ones you buy at the homebrew shop. I have decided these are
ok to ferment ...
Posted in thread: Headspace in secondary? on 10-21-2013 at 05:03 PM
