Depending on the kind of beers you like to brew, a 15 gallon Mt will be pretty small. I use a
15/15/15 setup and my mash tun is full for 10 gallon bathes over 1.06 or so, and nearly full
for 5 gallons...
Posted in thread: why did my keg empty into the bottom of my keezer? on 05-06-2013 at 10:24 PM
I had this happen for the first time not too long ago. I had just replaced the poppet due to a
leak that new orings couldn't fix. It was very stiff and difficult to get the ball lock
connector on. I f...

Maui Brewings brewpub has a lot more offerings that don't get distributed. Many of them are

I recently bought 4 from Adventures in Homebrewing and am very happy. It was the best price I
could find at the time (about 2 months ago).

Have you tried other shops? When I bought my 20lb tank, it was out of date. I took it to west

FWIW my session IPA is mashed low (148F), with an OG of 1.048. I keep the grain bill the same
as I would for an IPA, pale with a very small amount of light crystal. I also really like
FWHing for these...

The tropical hop aroma was more likely the pineapple used. According to the label, it's brewed
with pineapples, probably used similar to Maui Brewing Cos Mana Wheat. Also, Kona beers are
brewed at 4 o...

As mentioned, go with 4" shanks. I just put 3" ones in mine with a 2x6 collar and they wouldn't

I second the use of WLP080. I use it my cream ale and am very happy with it. I also agree with
the american 2 or 6 row. I use 6-row and flaked corn in mine and couldn't be happier.
