I'm am at the tail end of a hard cider experiment where I have about 18 different mini batches.
I would like to carbonate each one individually so I went to the hardware store and picked up
some gear ...

Update #2Just about finished everything up today. I started by assembling my 5 tap lines. I
used 3/16" Bev Seal Ultra. It is a pain to work with because of how stiff it is, but it should
last a LONG t...

Hey everyone. I thought I would upload a bunch of photos and give you a step by step process of
how I built my 5 tap keezer. I tried to keep everything as low-cost/high-quality as possible. I
am no ca...

Yes, slides into the copper and fastened with a small #6 stainless screw. The copper fitting is
the same 1/4" size as the CPVC, the other (threaded) side is 5/8".I would like to do a full

The beer seems to be fermenting along nicely (after about a 18hr lag) at 60-62F. The only odd

Pitched it this morning. 36hr old 1L starter into 5 gallons of 1.062 wort @ 60F. I'll give it a
look when I get back from the State Fair.

Ooook. This has gotten more intense than I ment, but I think I'll just pitch the whole starter
