  • 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.

  • Posted in thread: Anyone else annoyed with newer breweries using cans? on 08-15-2015 at 01:56 PM
    I don't know how much cans cost, but I do know the bottles sometimes cost more than the beer
    going into them. And I keg, so I have no use for them, so I like cans.

    Let me jump in and say 20 pound tanks are a lot more stable and you can keep the tank outside
    the keezer and just snake a gas tube in.

    You can do it, but I wouldn't. IMHO it sounds like a PIA. Get a freezer from CL on the cheap.

    Think about sanke kegs, I can't say how happy I am with them. They are built like tanks. You
    can find new 6th's for about 80 bucks a pop

    I used to have corny kegs too, and they leaked sometimes. They have 3 poppets and 12 O-rings.
    I've not had a leak with sanke kegs, they are tanks. I do leave my gas on to all hooked up

    When you say flood water, is it rainwater or sewage that backed up through a drain?

    Buy a cheap used 8-10 gallon pot and do BIAB on the stove top and save your money. The school
    may let you use the lab rig. The bottom line on building a HB system is their is 1000's of ways
    to do it, ...

  • Posted in thread: Can a sankey keg be a brite tank? on 04-15-2015 at 07:36 PM
    If you have a normal sanke and normal coupler, you can carb up a keg. The gas will go in the
    gas line as normal and carb the keg up.

    I don't think I understand the question? If you want to use them as fermenters, pull the spear
    and put a better bottle cap on them. If you want to carb the beer up in them, put the spear
    back in and c...
