    Nice job on the keezer. You might want to consider putting a computer fan in there somehow to
    recirculate cool air. I think my compressor runs less with the fan but it could be my
    imagination. I have ...

    So I insulated the probe with some stuff leftover from the build and just went 65 mins with a 6
    min cycle, so 10% duty cycle, I'll have to get a fan in there soon but that seemed to help
    drastically, ...

    So I have read the suggestions on this topic but still can't get my keezer to have a good cycle
    rate.I have a 5cu ge freezer with a 8x10 collar that is insulated with 3/4 inch reflective
    board. Contro...

    So I just finished my 5 cu ft keezer build featuring 3 taps!218349So I built the collar with
    2x8 pine for the inner collar and 1x10 pine for the outer collar, the 2x8 leaves me enough room
    for a third...

  • Posted in thread: Barleywine, time to cold crash? on 08-07-2014 at 04:11 AM
    That was a really small starter for that sort of beer assuming a 5 gallon batch, also don't
    make a starter that high of gravity it stresses the yeast out, not the best for yeast growth, I
    would let it...

    A NZ IPA would be great. My Maori IPA came out really good. And I agree on a stout...even a
    porter for fall & winter. ESB's & brown ales as well would be within reach with all that great
    stuff you got...

    Nice, sad but nice. Glad you were taken care of. Now what to brew? Looks like just about
    anything you have the yeast for.Yeah kinda bittersweet, right? I have no idea really were to
    start, fall and wi...

    So just scored a bunch of stuff from my LHBS that just closed down, I worked there for two
    years and it was sad to see it go. But on the brighter side of things I was able to pick up a
    bunch of stuff ...

  • Posted in thread: kettle vs keggle on 08-01-2014 at 03:43 PM
    This is common advice and it bit me to some degree to be honest. I bought 15 gallon kettles
    thinking I could do both 10 and 5 gallon batches, but the reality is that with a 5 gallon batch
    the thermome...

  • Posted in thread: Keggle false bottom concerns on 07-30-2014 at 02:54 AM
    Haha yeah I think about 10 ish, with the skinny tall aspect of a Keggle I thought it wouldn't
    be that big of a deal thanks for the replies guys Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew
