Looking to buy some cornelius kegs for primary fermentation (I really hate siphoning, and my understanding is you can use gas to force the liquid out instead of having to siphon).

Alas... I was hoping for new 5-gallon kegs at $100 :(

I just don't want to have to deal with a used keg.

Maybe next sale... (I know you've done it in the past!)

I wasn't heating the juice? The bit in step 2 was an idea to lower the temperature of the ginger-water by adding refrigerated juice. If you think it'd affect the flavor, then I will just wait for it...

I like a really strong ginger burn. I've been making Ginger Wine using invert sugar and apple juice as my fermentable, and it's been turning out great. I thought I'd try my hand at a ginger cyser...
