I just got a steelhead pump ( and am trying to figure out what fittings I need to integrate it

So I've got a ~5% Pumpkin Porter in the secondary right now that came out with a weird spice
profile. I think the problem is too much hops and too much clove. Anyway I figured if I age it
with some ru...

So I got a funny idea for a breakfast stout where I could actually include breakfast in the
beer. So let's say I want to throw a box of Honey Nut Cheerios in my mash. Would this

300, but my ...

I just refilled my CO2 tank for the first time since originally setting up my kegerator 7 or 8

Well, after 12 hours the temp was at 102 so it spent most of it's time in the desirable range.
We then bumped to 117 and rode it down to 92 before adding to main mash.Will adding to the main

Correct me if I'm wrong but 127 is too hot for Lacto. They are good at 95-105. I imagine they
didnt do too well at 127.Actually, they can survive as high as 131 but they thrive between
