    ABOUT ME

  • Got the "affliction" in the spring of 2011. And I've been slowing "inoculating" everyone I can.
  • Started brewing with a friend who had the same idea at the same exact time in July 2011. We went in almost full bore with a Partial-AG utilizing BIAB. We brewed a Double Chocolate Stout that came out pretty good if I do say so myself. I'm currently getting parts for an electric two vessel setup using a Keg and 10g pot. We just re-made our first recipe in July 2012 with the Chocolate stout all grain utilizing BIAB and cold sparge techniques. We hit our gravity exactly at 1075.
  • Chicoffee Stout, Dunkin Dunkel, New English ESB
  • BierMunchers Centennial Blonde, BierMunchers OktoberFast, Bitter Blonde (or "The X", too many hops so little beer), Irene's Windy Stout, Double Chocolate Stout, Irish Red, Vienna Moteuka SMaSH, Ordinary Bitter (an ESB w messed up Eff; placed 7th overall Sam's HB comp), Third Flight Pale Ale (exclusively Apollo hop bursted),

    Curious on the longevity you are all getting out of these small pumps? It's been a couple years
    since I started the thread.

    That's a good point Doug. Gog mine setup last night. About 0.3f off :-) So far so good! The
    response time isnt super duper fast but is sufficient for this application.

    What about setting to final desired PSI and rocking keg around until it won't absorb anymore
