  • I initially started brewing several years ago. Bought my first kit from a company named Kraus (?). First batch was good. Probably didn't sanitize my second batch enough and it was a disaster. My cousin bought me the Mr. Beer kit for Christmas ('09). Put it in the basement for awhile. Just bottled it today (6/26/10). Also bought a 5 gal/23 Liter kit from Cooper's. Have to create some space in the basement after I clear it with the wife.

    The breaker is there to protect the wiring, that's why a 25a breaker is an oddball that doesn't
    come in type you can put in a load center. You have 10 awg wire so use a 30a breaker. You
    probably have ...

  • Posted in thread: How many batches have you actually poured? on 09-21-2014 at 01:28 AM
    The only batch was Mr. Beer (back before they were bought by Coopers) that I dumped. So less
    than 2 gals. I persevered through gushers and other things. I didn't want to be accused of
    "alcohol abuse".

    ... Of course my wife thoroughly disapproves, no matter what kind of beer I'm drinking... Yeah,
    after a long hard day dirty day, there's nothing like a beer in the shower. My wife says, "Do

    At my main job(I have two) people wander why we can't keep gloves and safety glasses stocked.
    BUT those same people are standing in line every single day for a new pair. I have watched on a

    Opinions are like @ssholes, everyone has one. Everybody seems to forget the second part of
    this expression, "...everyone has one and they all stink!"

  • Posted in thread: What alternatives to Northern Brewer and Midwest Supply are out there? on 08-03-2014 at 07:31 PM
    I was just about to place an order with Austin and then changed my mind. I wanted to try some
    different brews and the reviews, good or bad, are all listed as four stars. They deleted my
    order history ...

  • Posted in thread: how long does it take others to bottle a 5 gallon batch? on 08-03-2014 at 04:51 AM
    2 hours from start to finish (usually). Including clean up. The part I like the least is
    labeling. I create 1 1/2" X 2" labels in excel, twenty-one to a sheet and cut them to
    individual labels (mostly...
