    ABOUT ME

  • I started brewing January 1, 2011. Bought myself some equipment for Christmas. I decided to begin brewing my own because I love beer and wanted to learn more about it. A couple of my friends brew and watching them got me thinking about it. I upgraded and built some stuff. I brew with a 10gallon SS kettle on a propane burner. Old coleman 8 gallon cooler. Sanke keg HLT. Ball valves. Copper manifold. Charcoal water filtartion system. 25ft copper IC. Carboys. Chest freezer ferementation chamber. I bottle but am in the process of building a keezer. All Grain, formulate my own recipes with mixed success.

    I was cutting away, thumb just got into the action. What I learned that day was always use the
    appropriate tool for the task, lol.

    Yes, I was drinking. I was cutting apart an extension cord. Getting things ready for the next
    days brew. Made a porter, named it 9 Stitches Robust Porter.

    It wasn't a brew day injury but an injury resulting from building a fermentation temp
    controller. Sliced my thumb open, 9 stitches.

    As far as keeping bottle caps flat when opening, use a lighter. Hell, you can use anything,
    really. Just gotta know the method.

    Also, I like to flush mine for a few minutes before each brew day.

    On my hose I cut the end off and added a swivel barb which happens to spray where it swivels. I
    corrected that by adding an additional rubber washer on top of the rubber washer that was in
    place. Prob...

    A gallon a minute or just under is what I run as well.

    I also change my filter yearly, although they are probably good for more than that, depending
    on how many gallons you put through them.
