  • I've been brewing since March, 2010. I started with the 23L Festa-brew kits but went all grain in the summer of 2010. I'm currently using a 48qt MLT, a 44qt brew pot and a counter-flow chiller. I've got a very basic keg setup and still bottle about 30% of my brews.

    I'm out of US-05 and so are the local homebrew shops. They have other dry varieties available
    (no liquid options). Is there another dry yeast that is the same strain as US-05?

    I have this old pin lock laying around I've never used and would love to sell. There's a leak
    in the lid that I haven't been able to fix. I think it can be repaired by someone handier than
    I. Keg with...

    Unfortunately, yes, I've tried that. Liquid actually leaks out the lid, so the size of the leak
    lets all the pressure out.

    I've got an old pin lock that leaks from around the lid (a lot). I received it this way (for
    free). I've tried keg lube, I've swapped lids, I've used extra fat O rings, and even tried to
    bend the mout...

    I'm no computer wiz, so I'm looking for help. Recently, the ingredient box in the "Recipe View"
    page has gone blank! Every recipe, new and old. What's going on and how can I fix it?

    My hops were happy and healthy 'till a few days ago. Leaves started developing holes and drying

    I have a chance to pick up a smaller one of these. Twin 3 gallon urns and a 20 gallon water
    jacket. I'm thinking of mashing/sparging in the urns and boiling in the water jacket. What do
    you think?

    Please pardon my ignorance, but how would you hook this up to the CO2 tank? Would I need a reg
    on the tank first, or is there an adapter?

    Found it!That's it! Thanks for tracking it down. I found a similar unit and I'm in the
    bargaining process now. Might be a fun project.
