  • Hi, I did HVAC for 13years, now I'm in Nursing school. I have been brewing for 2years just got a kegel MLT and BK and they are so much better than the cooler and big stock pot.

    If you have a normal sanke and normal coupler, you can carb up a keg. The gas will go in the

    back in and c...

    Good job on making some beer, the more you do it, the easier it gets. When you put the priming
    sugar in to carb up the bottles. The yeast eats that sugar, then makes more yeast, and the co2
