  • All-grain brewer. Been brewing for several years now. I got into it when a few buddies got me some brewing equipment for my birthday. First batch was an American IPA and after that I was hooked. Now I have a 4-tap keg system plus a jocky box. I brew beer and wine. Did Sake once. I love all beers, but my favorite is English Bitter.

    Upgrading my system. Weighing weldless vs tig weld fittings on my pot. Advantages? Part of me

    I feel naive. I guess because I don't think that way, it never occurred to me the keg could be
    stolen. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense why anyone would do that.

    Lol, I've never lost track of beer before but I guess there's a first time for everything. I
    have 8 kegs which take awhile to empty. I think it's an IPA I put in the back of the fridge

    $50. Hello new ma...

    with stainless on that machine. I've been thinking about building a brew stand for years. Now

    - A good friend walked me through my first extract batch. A year later I walked him through his
