    I'd love to get some corny kegs, mainly 'cause it looks soooooo much easier and faster than
    normal bottling. But am I correct in assuming that I also need to have a means of chilling the
    cornies (unle...

    I used to start all my posts with a disclaimer that I was a newbie brewer. It's been about 7
    years now and over 50 batches, so I guess I can't claim that any more....Anyway, last week I
    made one of my...

    Hmm, putting the FV in a big water bath is decent idea. Just have to find something big enough
    to hold a five-gallon carboy. And yes, for now I'm only looking to heat. I'm in north London
    and at least...

    Hi guys - I've been on the look-out for a used refrigerator that would be the right size to fit
    my fermentation vessels + airlock; so far I haven't had much luck finding one that would be the
    right si...

    I'm guessing that's the True Manufacturing glass-door refrigerator. Closest thing I see now
    available is the GDM-09E-LD:

    Our tap water here in London is a bit hard for our tastes, so we get water home-delivered in
    19l bottles. According to the bottom of the bottle, these bottles are 'copolyester', and the
    symbol - the '...

    After drinking some of my Blood Moon IPA homebrew, a neighbor decided to try his hand at
    brewing. Rather than just dipping his toe in, he jumped in head-first, spending a small fortune
    to build a smal...

    Hi guys - I've been looking to get a small refrigerator to use / convert into a fermentation
    chamber, when I had the good luck (?!) of having our refrigerator breakdown....kind of.
