    ABOUT ME

  • Spacecoast FL
  • Camping,kayaking,fishing,being outdoors.
  • Back when I was in college, I saw an ad for a home brew kit. Didn't have the time or money back then, but kept the ad. Years later I was cleaning out a box of college keepsakes and found the ad, called for a catalog and bought my first set up...2- 5 gal fermenters ( large diameter with no handles to speak of, merely recessed finger grooves), some cans of wort syrup, bags of corn sugar, a capper and racking equipment.rnrnDespite my lack of knowledge, I brewed some tasty stuff back then.rnrnToday I'm into all grain brewing and enjoy formulating my own recipes. An ice fed fermentation chamber for temperature control works even in the 95 degree room I use for fermentation. Got tired of cleanning bottles so use a compact fridge now for a 1 corny set up, looking for a deal on a chests freezer to put in the workshed so I can have a variety on tap at any time. Currently using a propane turkey fryer set up for brewing with a 5 gal round cooler for a mash tun. rnrnThe last recipe I crafted was
  • Leeward Passage Pale Ale
  • Don't use a secondary
  • Amarillo IPA
  • Male
  • Divorced

    Hello everyone,I was eyeballing a 14 x 6 wall mounted drip tray that had holes to hang on
    screw. Has anyone tried attaching the tray with machine screws and nuts to the earth magnets
    instead of gluing...

    Thanks, it is all brand new equipment. I'll just measure and cut the tubing to make the 3 pair
    of hose sets. I've been told 9 feet of the barrier beerline is good for the perlick 630
    faucets.

    I've been using the same old picnic tap forever and recently invested in the equipment to make
    a 3 tap keggerator from a fridge.Do I have to preclean the ball lock fittings, faucets, shanks,
    and hoses...

    I think the high heat on the back patio plus the freezer door not properly sealing is part of
    the problem. It has been running in the 90s. I vaced the coolant lines under the unit which
    were pretty di...

    Hello everyone,Finally replacing picnic taps with perlick 650ss in a side by side for 3 kegs.
    Obviously need to get some new tubing. Does a homebrewer with a fairly short hose need the
    silver antimicr...

    The fridge is a side by side and the freezer door is messed up so it does not close tightly,
    which is why it was taken offline and destined for the scrapyard till I decided to use it for
    fermentation....

    I converted an old fridge into a fermentation chamber with the help of an inkbird temp
    controller. Dialed the fermentation temp to 67 and let the batch sit for 3 weeks. Great stable
    temps even with th...
