Posted in thread: current options for temperature-controlled fermentor? on 03-26-2015 at 02:00 AM
Maybe another way for me to make the decision; what's it going to cost me to build a keezer to
replace the keg side of my current setup? 3 used ball-lock kegs, CO2 regulator, 5-way manifold,
gas and b...
Posted in thread: current options for temperature-controlled fermentor? on 03-24-2015 at 03:37 AM
I've been homebrewing about 5 years; 3 years ago I modified a side-by-side fridge with two

I've been thinking about streamlining my process in light of time constraints of a full time
job and two young boys at home who need my attention. I basically brew a five gallon batch once

It's been too long since I've done a proper beer line cleaning. I use 3/16" BevSeal Ultra I
usually just run a gallon of warm PBW through from a pressurized keg though the tap. Is that
enough to preve...
Posted in thread: anyone have a design for bulkhead and RIMS going into a cooler lid? on 04-22-2014 at 02:15 AM
I have a two-vessel system with a single pump, recirculating mash but have no way to maintain

Posted in thread: Is Williams brewing still the best oxygenation system? on 03-18-2014 at 05:33 AM
I'm not interested in investing in a welding oxygen bottle at this point, assuming it costs
about as much as a CO2 bottle. I have noted that the hydro test is usually expired by the time
I take it in ...

Sweet so that regulator hooks up to the red disposable oxygen bottle? What else do I need? A
