You could built the tap handles out of Galvanized materials and then scuff up the faucets to take some of the sheen off them. I would test the scuff idea on a test item first.

The other option...

I use this method to fill growlers and it works great.

The only thing I tweaked is that I don't change my regulator pressure. When I'm ready to fill I shut off the valve for the keg, purge some...

A girl I work with fell for that same story when she was a teenager.

The problem now is that kids have Google and access to HBT. It wouldn't take much energy to disprove that statement.

Built?

Did you end up building this. This looks like an upright freezer with a temp controller. This may fit better in my basement than a chest freezer.

Freezing yeast in mason jars?

I saw a couple articles out there that talks about freezing yeast but they all seem to tell you to tranfer the slurry to test tubes before you freeze.

I wash my yeast and store them in small mason...

I hope it turns out good. If it does mellow out it may end up being a wicked brew.

I'd like to throw a thank you out there for this recipe. This is going to be a regular brew for me. I undershot my gravity and it still turned out great.

Oh it definetly is going to whack out my recipe. I only set it up for 60% efficiency. I overshot the gravity by a ton. I was figuring I would maybe bump up the efficiency by 10% on 20%+

I have a series of questions and if they have all been...
