  • Posted in thread: New kegging equipment today! on 07-09-2014 at 01:41 AM
    Next question: does this mean I always have to have both kegs primed in order to serve out of
    one? Or do I just leave the other gas line disconnected from the second keg? I would have to
    waste CO2 by ...

    I came back from a long weekend at the shore and found my centennial grew another 5 inches

  • Posted in thread: Are any of you brewers runners? on 07-01-2014 at 04:55 PM
    I throw in a few miles every week. I've never enjoyed running on pavement, though. If I find a
    nice wooded area, I'll go for 2-3 miles. I'm not the marathon or even the half-marathon guy,
    but I do fee...
