I am looking at this faucet to replace my standard faucets that stick when not used for a day or two (I know, GASP!). Do they use the same threads as the standard faucets that come on towers or are...

Regular extract and grain brews can take 3-4 hours for brew day. Simpler kits take less time, more advanced/all grain takes a lot longer.

I work 6 days a week usually 8-10 hours (often more) and a...

I've never added extra yeast when bottling. Some people say if it has been sitting for a VERY long time (I am guessing upwards 6months to a year) you may need to, but even then, it will probably just...

I just chuck the pellets into the secondary. I spray the outside of the bag with sanitizer solution and use sanitized scissors to cut the bag. May be a bit paranoid, but oh well.

Other than smell, I think this is proof that it really IS hard to screw up home brewing and have a completely undrinkable beer.

Very amusing read. I would definitely say let some of those bad boys...
