I still do that when I extract brew. I use sanitized Culligan water jugs, freeze filtered water, cut the jug away with a sanitized knife... I do this mainly as a time saving measure, which is why I...

I always try to use local honey from the Farmer's Market. It really helps out your local beekeepers and you can be confident that it hasn't been pasteurized or had anything added to it. Plus, I find...

I've brewed that NB recipe. It is very good, as is. I would suggest sticking to the recipe, esp if you haven't brewed it, before. That way, if you do decide to make changes, you will have a direction...

This is what I do, also. I think a lot of folks use cfc's or plate chillers and they need to keep out as much particulate, as possible. I just use an immersion chiller (a la Jamil) so no worries.

The main reason not to drill through your freezer wall is to avoid hitting the coils and ruining your unit. My chest freezer is plenty tall enough for my kegs, otherwise.

I just used pine 2x6. I...

I've had that happen several times. Never affected my beer, negatively. It does make it difficult to break the inner seal.
