I brewed this on 11/6 and kegged it two weeks later on 11/20. I didn't have the equipment for a

I ran the install script on my Hosehead, and (foolishly) upgraded my whole Raspberry Pi. I

By my calculations I paid $159 for the Thermobarrel, and I think I need to spend about another

I didn't measure how much water was left behind, but I filled it tonight and didn't have any
