  • Posted in thread: Keezer collar build - is insulation necessary? on 05-22-2013 at 02:10 PM
    No insulation on my keezer. I also have mine inside with computer fan. I think that if you had
    your keezer in a location where the temperatures fluctuate a lot, insulate. If not, you'll be
    fine. I hav...

    I kegged up my first cider last week and took a taste yesterday. I'd like to get a bit more
    sweetness in it and was considering backsweetening with concentrate. Is this something I can do

    cutting was...

    I can tell you that I have an in-line fan (designed for hydroponics) that is 4" 165cfm. It

    enough suction...

    I brewed up a Belgian White this last weekend and had real trouble with a stuck sparge. I knew
    things were not going as planned when during the mash I could not get good flow through my
    HERMS coil. I ...

  • Posted in thread: Belgian beers essential ingrediants on 05-03-2013 at 01:36 PM
    I've always used candi sugar on Tripels or Belgian Strong Ales. Pilsner malt as the base. I
    like hallertauer mittelfruh, Saaz for hops. Styrian Goldings will work too. I've used Munich,
    Biscuit, and C...

    For me it was all about being able to brew indoors. February Michigan winters were no kinda fun

    Mine is about the same as yours 10-15.
