So I've finally done it. A clean record of 5 years out the window.....I've made an infected
batch of beer. Almost certain it is due to an infected yeast culture. So......I hate to throw
away 10 gallon...

You're right. They're not stainless. Magnet sticks easily.They are in great shape, though. At
this point, I'm thinking one could be used to mash (simple infusion, no heat of course) or to

You're right. The barrels are painted on the outside and coated on the inside. Couldn't this be
removed? Sand blasting maybe?

My friends and I recently acquired 3 55 gallon food-grade barrels. They were originally used to

Posted in thread: Any Raleigh, NC Area Brewers with Pacman Yeast? on 05-29-2007 at 05:04 PM
I'm sick of paying for yeast every time I brew. I'm going to start culturing my own. I really

For the record, I checked a cardboard box with six, well-wrapped liters. Foam peanuts also. No
problems. (The box was opened and inspected, as there was fresh tape on it when I got it

I'm flying up to Long Island to visit my family in a couple of weeks, and I want to bring some

in my carry...

Why don't you just get an adapter for your sink so you can hook a hose up to it? You might
already have one if you use a bottle washer. Run the hose to your garage. Run the waste hose
back to a sink o...
