    Don't have a rain barrel yet. Just thought it would be a great idea. Living in phoenix, it
    would be empty 11 months of the year...

    I am curious if anyone here collects wort chiller waste water in a rain barrel. I was thinking
    of doing that and using the collected water for plants in the back yard. My question is if the
    plastic ba...

    Thanks, I am not new to AZ. I have lived here 13 years. Just started brewing out here. Before I
    was brewing in Michigan. I work there and spent so much time there that is where I began
    brewing. I rece...

    Yes, I use Starsan, which is why I was concerned about the soft water. Here is the local water
    report. Plus the houses water softener which I am not even sure what all it adds.

    I just moved my brewing operation from Michigan and its rich delicious hard water to Arizona. I
    am in Glendale and the tap water tastes horrible. Add to the fact that I have a water softener
    in the ho...

    As for the kegging set up, I'd say go for it. I only bottled my first batch. After that I got a
    3 keg set up with a 7.1CF Chest freezer from sams club. A Johnson A419 temp controller to run
    the show, ...

    UPDATE!Well, it has been a long road. After fermentation and a diacetyl rest, I put it in my
    chest freezer at 32 degrees for 2 months and 5 days. I force carbed it last Friday, and had my
    first pint l...

    It is, in fact, a Northern Brewer Bucket.I recently bought a scale, since I started doing
    partial mash recipes that weren't from kits. I put a large plastic bowl on my scale (accurate
    to 0.05 oz) and ...

  • Posted in thread: 3 piece airlock blowoff problems on 03-10-2013 at 10:42 PM
    I find that a 1 inch tube fits perfectly inside the three piece airlock. I use it in my
    buckets. I would post a pic, but it is not handy right now. 5 ft of 1 inch tube is about right
    to go up and down...

    Update. Well, I left the bucket full of starsan for about a week and a half or so. Washed it
    out last night. Came out nice and clean again. I would love to switch back to PBW, but until I
    can pick it ...
