    ABOUT ME

  • Austin, TX
  • Brewing,wood/metal working,gardening
  • Jeff Jones
  • Started in the early 90's in N. VA w/kit (the 6-gal plastic bucket and prehopped extract). Made a yeasty, drinkable, ale. Moved to a 7 gallon canning pot and a cajun cooker and stayed w/extract kits before going to all-grain. Kept at it, but never more than 5 or 6/year. Setup was makeshift and labor intensive. Really hated bottling. Got a bigger house, but set brewing aside for a while, though I tried to stay with it. I bought a kegging setup, but just lost interest. I'd never really fallen in love with my results. Back in Austin in '03. After a few Dogfish Head 120's in '07, got bit by the brew bug again. To AHBS for 15 gal SS pot and IPA mini-mash kit. Scored a burner and a pile of carboys & kegs on CL. Went all-grain, 10 gal batches on most brews, 4 taps, & push legal limit. Provide adult beverages for all family gatherings each year. For Christmas, treated myself to March, Love, and 20-gal Boilermaker. First recirculating mash 2 weeks ago.

    Yuri did something with a refrigerated keg cooler, some copper lines, and a conical. Here's the
    link DIY Chilled Conical/Keg Fermenter. Starts off as a jacketed glycol chilled fermenter but
    it evolved...

    I've been in situations where I had no choice but to siphon by mouth. What works for me is to
    take a good mouthful of bourbon, vodka, scotch, or whatever is within reach and swish it around
    like mouth...
