I was able to couple them together with a barb reducer and some clamps. I ran santizer through them and didn't have any leaks. I'm using barb connections, since that's what came with the set up.

Granite City Brewery Blueberry Clone?

Does anyone have a recipe for this? I brewed my very first beer last night and I'm eager to see how it will turn out. I'd like to try this for my second beer if possible. Thanks!
