    When a blue spruce at my parent's house was pushing new growth this spring, I decided to pluck
    a bunch of growth off for brewing. A week or so later, I picked up a generic pislner kit at the
    LHBS. I p...

    The inside is smooth. The container is intended to be a biological filter, and is currently
    filled with "biomedia" which are plastic pieces about the size of a tennis ball, with a large
    amount of surf...

    Yeah that sounds awesome. Are those holes already conveniently threaded for you?Unfortunately,
    the holes are not threaded for me, but a 1" PVC fitting with threads DOES fit quite nicely. I
    figure if I...

    Airlock to the side is no big deal other than it's a little lower on the fermenter, so if your
    batch is big enough, it will be a bit more likely to blow off. You'll have to rig some sort of
    right-angl...

    It's the same grade of plastic as the plastic primary I am currently using. I have thought
    about putting a faucet valve in for racking. Does anyone see problems with putting the airlock
    off to one sid...

    I am looking for opinions on the viability of this as a 2nd primary fermentor. We have them on
    clearance at work, and since beginning brewing, it clicked that I might be able to use this for
    a larger ...

    Thanks t1master. Unfortunately, all I have is a plastic "Ale Pail" type primary, and no glass
    carboys yet, but it may be time to invest ;) I wish my primary was glass as well, as the
    curiousity gets t...

    Does it sound like it will turn out alright? In my beginning stages still, I just am enjoying
    experimenting, but I combined several recipes to achieve that one. With my initial gravity of
    1.080, and a...

    I brewed some sort of hybrid last night, not quite sure what style I would place it in, but
    looks good so far. Did a mini-mash with the specialty grains. 6Gal into the fermentor.Began
    with a Munton's ...

  • Posted in thread: Culligan bottles on 02-04-2005 at 09:31 PM
    Does anyone use the 5-Gallon "Culligan" type water bottles for a secondary (or primary)? I know
    that they are more permeable to oxygen, more prone to scratching, etc, but I have a friend that
    will giv...
