The guys at my LHBS use that setup for their coolers and told me the only issue they have is sometimes the spigot knob tries to rise up out of the handle when it gets too hot. Other than that, they...

I've also had all three on tap. Don't like them. I'm not a huge Pilsner fan or Saaz hops fan. That's what really kills Urquell for me.

This is a tough one, because I've had a ton of horrible beers over the years. For me any of the B/M/C beers are up there, but I will drink regular Coors if that's my only option. Moosehead,...

Thanks. I'm going to end up using 1/2" parts instead of the 3/8" ones because of space issues. The 3/8 are just way too small for this cooler I have. Even the 1/2" leaves just a bit of wiggle room...

I picked up 2 5gal coolers at Home Depot, but the diameter of the hole where the spout is is much larger than every cooler mash tun build I've seen. The opening is just over 1/2" in diameter and I...

I know that Rogue has used Newport hops in some of their brews. I also plan to grow these and some Centennial next year. I love me some Fuggles and the Newport sounds interesting, so why not?

I usually let mine sit for about 3 months then keg it with 3 cans of apple juice concentrate and a pound of brown sugar. I then let it sit for 2-3 months and its great.
