  • Posted in thread: Kegerator Build Help - Danby DAR044A1WDD on 10-03-2013 at 03:05 AM
    Hi, I've been looking at some of the Danby compact refrigerators to use as a kegerator. I came
    across this one: a newer model. I've seen lot's of tutorials and pics for the older model
    (DAR440BL), an...

    I would say just be a little more careful about sanitization, and replace all of your vinyl
    tubing. I went the same thing a few months ago and the results suit me

    Before you make a decision, take a gravity reading. I'll bet its just about finished

  • Posted in thread: Adding more yeast = higher ABV? on 04-26-2011 at 02:04 PM
    Appropriate amount of yeast is key. That said, I'd rather overpitch than underpitch

  • Posted in thread: Should I dump it? on 04-26-2011 at 02:00 PM
    Why dump it now? If its disgusting after bottling or kegging, then dump it. I've made some
    serious mistakes, and I've never dumped any beer

    6 months maybe?

  • Posted in thread: ahhhhh First AG beer on 04-19-2011 at 03:26 PM
    What did your efficiency come out to? My first couple of AG brews had very low efficiency. The
    more AGs you do, the better you'll get at predicting the post boil gravity and you can plan

  • Posted in thread: Why use carboys? on 04-19-2011 at 03:23 PM
    The reason for secondary in carboy is definitely head space. Whether or not to use them for
    primary is really preference. I like many others here prefer better bottle carboys, just
    because I like to s...

  • Posted in thread: IPA has excessive carbination and it's thin on 04-14-2011 at 01:38 PM
    I think overcarbonation can make a beer seem a little thin. I would just be careful to sanitize
    well on your next batch, and carbonate a bit less. If it happens again, then go ahead and
    replace your t...

    John Palmer gave some pointers on aluminum pots in the 2nd brew strong episode ("Metals that
    affect your beer"). Its fine, I wouldn't worry about it. I've got a 9G kettle for 5G batches. I
    find that f...
