    Since i posted i actually did the nested tub with expanding foam thing to get some better
    insulation. I have it set at 19.5C and its keeping it within a few tenths of ambient of around
    77 so it's mana...

    That seems like a really really tight fit, but that last pic obviously shows it works just
    fine. I just bought the ice probe chiller for my water bath tub last week so i could finally
    brew during the ...

    This is interesting, did you ever finish this? Does it work as well as you hoped? You said you
    had a water bath prior, but was this new setup also meant as a water bath?I ask because this is
    exactly t...

    This might seem like an odd question but whats it like to take the carboys in and out? I
    thought about walling in my basement workbench and essentially doing the same thing but figured
    it would be bac...

    Can i ask why you didn't use the shake method? Two weeks is a loooooong time to wait for beer
    to carbonate by kegging. Half the point of kegging is for quicker carbonation.I usually pump up
    the pressu...

    I had one witbier that was sour and none since, all same equipment. I ferm'd hot though and
    opened once or twice to check gravity. I think something must have simply fallen in there. It's
    been bottled...

    Some time ago i brewed my first wheat and it got infected. It had a very sour taste to it, but
    i just attributed that to the infection. Recently i just brewed my second wheat and it also had
    a very so...

    So if I understand you correctly, I can't carb two kegs at once using one co2 tank? If that's
    correct, I'm assuming my only options are to get a two-way manifold like you advised, or use
    two co2 tanks...

    Well i have over 3lbs of dme leftover from the priming malt in the kits i use that i keg and
    don't bottle. I like a lot of varieties, especially hoppy beers like the dogfish head, but im
    singled out i...

    My birthday is coming up in about 8 weeks and i wanted to do something special to share with
    family and friends. I'm just getting back into brewing from a 10 year hiatus and have about 8
    extract batch...
