  • Been brewing about six years, started with the LHBS kit like everyone else before quickly moving to all grain. Got sick of crawling around on garage floors and messing with coolers and pouring gallons of boiling liquid around in 2009 and built a Brutus-style system and bang out 10 gallon batches. Not brewing as much the past year and a half or so, since am trying (badly) to lose some of the weight I've put on the past couple of years...

    Others will chime in, this is all opinion only.Yes, your CO2 tank can live outside. What I did

    Damnit, now you have me thinking...That Avantco unit is similar to what started this. Found
    basically the premade kegerator version of that same unit but branded by Superior (Beverage
    Air) on Craigsli...

    Odd question for everyone.I'm a bit tired of messing with keezers and the resulting
    condensation, cleaning, and inevitable mold when I don't immediately get to it. My wife and I
    are moving next month,...

    Go LED - that won't generate heat. Could rig something with a momentary switch so the light
    comes on when you open it up, like a normal fridge.

    Heya folks. Been out of the hobby for a couple of years, thanks to a new baby - but itching to

    looking for a...

    Miki, I actually had the same issue. Have three ports in mine (third not needed, dunno why) and
    I included a sensor in the box itself to act as "room". Room worked without issue, as it did
    when beer O...

    THREAD NECROMANCY ALERT! So been on hiatus for some time, and still running 1.5. Be happy to
    upgrade to 2.0, but how on earth do you get the upgrade version? (I only see the full version
    available) Wa...

    other parts from Derrin to basically make a Morebeer harvester, I also ordered a pack of lids
    from Ecojarz...
