Posted in thread: Brewing thermometer, scale ideas? on 12-06-2013 at 05:29 PM
Hey all,Wifey's asking for Christmas ideas, and brewing stuff is always good. My last AG batch,
2nd time doing AG, figured I didn't have a good handle on how much volume I drained (no sparge)
Posted in thread: Serving beer at lager fermentation temperature? on 12-05-2013 at 02:55 PM
I figured, serve at 40°, good lagering temp. So, I raise the temp to say, 50-55° for a lager
primary for two weeks, or 60-65° for 1 week if an ale (all depending on the yeast - during
those times, the...

The project looks good. Only one issue though. How many people have a USB jack next to their
keezers? I prefer to use a plug into the wall cell phone charger as a bunch of people have
these lying arou...

I'd have a spare set of o-rings and spare liquid line since you're dealing with the coke, but

Certainly a fun thing to try - used sweetmarias for my beans, use the hot air gun + aluminum
dish method, works well - but isn't the end-all-be-all for coffee IMO. I blame my palate though
- I get muc...

Hello all,So, recently got into kegging - two ball lock soda kegs off of a dual regulator, 10

Posted in thread: Question about manifolds on 07-24-2013 at 03:33 PM
Most of the manifolds I've seen have shut-off valves, but I'm not sure whether they have check
valves or not. I would think not, but I'm only guessing. I'll probably end up getting a dual

Can you get 4 kegs in there? The pictures make it look like 2 are in there with just a little
room to spare...Tre9er, this thread was exactly what I needed - dimensions, inner and outer,

Looks great! I went with the same freezer for mine, and made a collar from 1x8 too - stained it
dark mahogany. Good idea on covering the joints with tape to keep glue from seeping out and
