  • Eh, I got into craft beer because I was sick of Miller Lite. I then went on a tour of a brewery in Maine and tasted the best beer I have ever had.While I was tasting the beers I found a pamphlet for a LHBS in Rhode Island. The rest is History!

  • Posted in thread: Sankey coupler leaking on 11-20-2013 at 11:33 PM
    Hey All,So, I sometimes run commercial craft beer in my kegerator. I have a sankey "low
    profile" coupler. So, a keg kicked a few weeks ago, I decoupled it, and put the coupler in a
    pitcher of water (l...

    Here is my advice-Go to Home Depot, get the required sections of pipe and joints, some solder,
    some flux, and a cheap propane torch. Soldering is pretty damn easy.

    So I brewed this up a while ago, but substituted rye versus oats and black patent for the black
    barley. I also added 8oz of cold brewed coffee (8 fluid ounces of water and 4 ounces by weight
    of dunkin...

  • Posted in thread: heating the mash with a heat exchanger on 04-25-2013 at 04:24 PM
    So, I know that with a RIMS and HERMs, you are pumping the mash to the heat source, but why not
    go the other way and put a coil in the mash and pump hot water through it? Bring the heat
    source to the ...

    Hey! Welcome back to the forum- I haven't "seen" you around in a while so it's nice to see a
    post from you. It's been a long time!Anyway, I think that if the grain doesn't taste stale
    it'll be fine. I...

    I have grain that has been stored in home depot buckets that is like three years old. Tastes
    alright so i brewed with it the other day, so we will see what happens.

  • Posted in thread: Hangover prevention on 04-24-2013 at 02:04 PM
    I have been suffering from delayed hangovers recently. I wake up feeling fine, but by 10 or 11
    am, I am near death. The odd thing is that I stop drinking somewhat early, like 11 or midnight.

  • Posted in thread: Any way to speed up the brew day? on 04-23-2013 at 03:03 PM
    I clock in at like four hours and that is considering I did nothing at all the night before.
    60min mash, 15 min batch sparge, and 60 min boil. Clean and prep as you go. After I transfer to
    the ferment...

  • Posted in thread: Any new news on Home Depot Homer buckets? on 02-16-2013 at 03:48 PM
    I didn't read the whole thread, but here is a good reason why HD buckets are cheaper, even if
    they are HDPE.HD orders the buckets by the hundreds of thousands, if not millions. Each of
    those buckets c...

    I'm sure they weren't designed for food or boiling temps. But seem to work well just the same.
    There are several types of nylon, but all melt above 400F. Not sure about nylon being food
    grade, but I d...
