Posted in thread: cleaning beer lines, wait what? on 10-14-2013 at 01:38 AM
I've been taking the tap off, and filling the line with pure, undiluted BLC. It's not hard with

it from ...

They're the best. And not just for kegging, you can ferment in them as well.Cleaning isn't too

Posted in thread: Choosing a good burner... on 10-25-2012 at 02:45 AM
The blichmann kettles are overpriced bling. Their burner, on the other hand is the best value,

Posted in thread: Keezer as wort chiller...Lesson learned! on 10-11-2012 at 02:39 PM
