Yeah, that's exactly what I did. Although if RC00032 was able to get a 3 tap tower for $60, you might want to check on a 2 tap tower from Acumetal.

Are you sure you need to replace the tower? I have an old Kenmore kegerator too, with a 2.5" tower, and I drilled a hole for a second tap. I forget how to post pics, but if you check out my gallery...

Not sure if I'll make it up there tonight, Brewt00l. Is Capone's worth the drive from Philly? I've heard about this joint before, but don't know anyone who's been there.

I'm totally confused here. Why are you adding holes to the inner hose? You should remove the inner hose.

Do you have the hose shoved on the IC as far as it will go? My IC came with two clamps for each hose. Also, you might want to look into getting new clamps if the ones you have are stripping out...

That's pretty warm right now for tap. I think my tap water is around 65 right now. I don't think coiling your hose in a pool of ice water will work. Some people have set up a pond pump and a pool...

If no one else offers, you can come by my place for a session. I'm a bit of an all-grain newb, so buyer beware.

Your way should be fine, but you might want to up your sparge water temp. You want to raise the grain bed temperature to be near 170 at mash out, adding 170 won't raise the temp enough.

You need a place to hold your runnings until you are ready to boil. That could be another keggle, pot, or bucket. If you're doing 5 gallon batches I'd use a bucket, or pick up a cheap 5 gallon...

This is a good stout. I made a PM last winter using 1.5 lbs of pale malt, and 3.25 lbs of light DME. I didn't bump the hops (even though I did a 3 gallon boil too), but in hindsight I probably...

If you're broke and in college, I'd skip all grain until you get out of school. In the meantime look into partial mashing.

I recommend getting full tort. I think it normally costs about $100 more a year. But buy opting for limited tort you are forfeiting your right to sue in the event of an accident.
