    Easy enough.. if it's UV pasteurized, that's good enough. If not, you may need to add some
    K-Meta and wait 24 hours. After that it depends on how much and how alcoholic you want it. If
    you want to giv...

  • Posted in thread: Which of these yeasts would you recommend for a sparkling apple cider? on 10-24-2014 at 06:15 PM
    I have a cider working with S-33, about 11 days in. Was 4 gallons juice, 1 gal local UV
    pasturized cider. Still really cloudy. Not worried, going to let it sit until mid nov, kill the
    yeast, add some ...

    deg angle i cut with my miter saw was not enough to clear so I had to saw more off on that one.

    I'm a pretty hard core coffee drinker.That being said, do any of you have a KEG of coffee at
    any given time?I don't even know how to address this concept.You don't have to use a 5 gallon
    keg. There ar...

    Nothing -- and that's a problem because my keg is about to kick. :( Need to get another 5
    gallons of cider going.

  • Posted in thread: how many taps do you have and how many do you want? on 10-23-2014 at 01:17 PM
    I have one. My home-built kegerator will hold 2 kegs, so I'm looking to upgrade to a dual-tap
    tower. Anyone got one they want to get rid of? :D

    But maybe try Polypins? That way you have coffee in a bag much like boxed wine comes.That would
    work. OTOH, if you want to have a tap, it's probably easier to have it kegged and have a tower.

  • Posted in thread: Looking for dual-tap tower on 10-23-2014 at 12:11 PM
    Hello, all...I just finished building my single-tap kegerator and I'm already looking to
    upgrade to a dual-tap tower. :DIf you have a lovingly used dual-tap tower in good condition
    (preferably WITH ta...

    I just finished (mostly -- still need to move the thermostat / light) my single-tap kegerator
    last night. I'm not sure what model, but I have a 4.4/4.5 CU Ft mini-fridge which came with
    removable tray...
