Sharpie on the lid for me.

However, to kick it up a notch I've etched a logo on a small number of bottles. Those look fantastic, but I never got around to doing the rest of them.

Same problem here. iPhone 5 running latest iOS. The application locks up more frequently than it doesn't. Makes it pretty much unusually, and the http site isn't very usable on the small screen.

This math seems way too easy/magical to be true. It also doesn't take into account existing co2 in solution, which has to play a role (otherwise you could store an infinite amount of co2 in beer,...

Fixing a bad keg "leg"

I'm not sure what to call it. On the lid, there are two feet that press down on the top of the keg. My understanding is that these feet should be about 2mm below the lip so that it has a chance to...

I have some extra legacy and super galena that I'd like to use up, so I'm planning an IPA. I tend to like beers that aren't too heavy or too bitter, but am hoping to get lots of hop-forward flavor. ...
