    I plan to brew outside through the Adirondack Mountain winter. In fact it was below zero when I
    started yesterday but was up in the teens when I started the boil. We'll see how cold I'll go…

    -22c here so i won't be brewing outdoors today!! That's about -8 F. Couldn't let that stop me
    or I'd have to start buying beer. It's almost 10 F now & I'm 15 minutes into boil. Little over
    an hour or ...

    -4 F here and I'm starting to crush grains. Will boil outside. This what I'll need to do to
    keep a supply of Homebrew over the winter in the Adirondack Mountains.

    This looks like the best price I can get for malt extract in any form. 50 lbs DME = 62.5 lbs
    LME. Factoring in $20 shipping that's around $2.10/lb LME equivalent.

    We have a small bakery as well that we only run a couple days a week in the off season.You can
    get dextrose by the 50 lb sack from your bakery supplier for around 50¢ a pound. Generally use
    some in mo...

    As mentioned above, here in the States you need a prescription to fill an medical tank. I use a
    20 cf oxygen welding tank with a regulator designed for such from Williams. The initial layout
    is more, ...

    You can also incorporate more grains that contribute unfermentable sugars such as dextrin malt,
    caramel/crystal malts, biscuit, and victory malts, etc.I have a pretty good stout that is just
    too thin ...

    That's a medical grade tank. I don't think you will be able to get it filled without a
    prescription. I have an oxygen tank for welding which I can exchange readily at a welding shop.

  • Posted in thread: Is this keg ok? on 09-21-2013 at 11:34 PM
    Looks like it was banged up pretty good and possibly breached, then welded to seal or
    reinforce. I got one like that in a batch I bought. Since I have a bunch of kegs anyway, I'll
    use it as a Star-San...
