Posted in thread: Question for brand new kegs and cleaning/sanitizing for first use on 09-21-2014 at 09:19 PM

Posted in thread: Drank my first IPA ever this evening. on 09-19-2014 at 09:21 PM
Love this thread, and how it's five pages within one day! :) I'll start by saying I currently

drink one or t...
