  • 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. Most of my gear I try to find or make. But things like the plate chiller or filter and dip tube on the MLT are just easer to buy.

    If for no other reason that anything poly breaks down over time, and it would sure suck to have
    one break. I change mine every year or two

  • Posted in thread: Would you buy beer in smaller cans? on 11-19-2015 at 02:24 AM
    I've never needed beer in a smaller container. But I support the brewers and drinkers ability
    to make that choice for themselves. But ME, I dink by the pint.

  • Posted in thread: How many 5 gallons kegs can I serve with a full 13 lbs CO2 tank? on 11-18-2015 at 06:47 AM
    Do you want to serve beer? Or serve and carbonate the beer? It doesn't take much to serve beer
    AKA push it out of a already carbed keg. If you want to carb the beer up and serve it, it works
    out to ab...

    When I did this, I would use the 3rd runnings from the MLT. Then pressure can it.

    You should be replacing those every year or whenever you feel it's needed.

    I'm not saying this would work or to get this, but it's something to think about.

  • Posted in thread: Do you know any quality commercial breweries using dry yeast in the beers? on 11-14-2015 at 11:03 PM
    How many breweries are under 10BBL's and have labs? Not many. How many order yeast and reuse
    that yeast, in many, many, ways? A lot. So IMHO, every small brewery should have several pounds
    of it stash...

    So I recently moved to all grain BIAB outside on a propane Bayou Classic. On average, how many
    batches do you guys get from you 15lb propane tanks? I would hate to be in the middle of a boil
    and have ...

  • Posted in thread: Successes and failures with grain mills, what mill has worked best for you? on 10-30-2015 at 09:38 PM
    You can get a good mill for about $100, if you're going to be a heavy user you may want to
    invest in a better mill. I have a MM3 with the 1.5" rollers, my mill has seen a few thousand
    pounds and still...
