    I just completed (except for paint) my brewstand. Made from 2x2 square tubing and 1 1/2 angle.
    Used 2 banjo burners for the HLT and Boil. Mash tun is a 10 gallon cooler. Everything is ready

    Revy...which size for the milk crates. My beer boxes are starting to deteriorate and I need a
    solution! Are you talking about the 24qt rectangular crates or the 16qt square ones. Also how
    do they work...

    An overnight soak in Oxyclean gets most of the crap off. Labels, glue, nastiness in the bottom.
    If I have old nasty bottles (usually friends give me these) I use one of these: it in your
