Maybe I'll get one of those threads like "How many people have kegged using ChefChris' boiling water technique". Maybe I'll get an article in BYO.

Yeah Chris and then you gotta start being a pretentious a$$ and correcting people in other posts and discussing about how over rated Jamil is.

Did another batch of Vienna SmaSh today over at a neighbor's. He has this old antique carboy that has a wide mouth opening that a mason jar lid fits on perfectly. And it has a wooden crate to sit in. But his conex was a little warm so we have it in a muck bucket with water bath, to keep it cool.

Also my first batch with the Corona mill. After cranking one hopper full, we put a bolt in and used an electric drill to power it. Might have went a little fine on the mill, as the sparge went real slow, even though I did add some rice hulls, thinking that it might be a find grind.

I got way too much beer going right now. I had to come back here to look at my signature to see what was next in line to be kegged or dry hopped. Totally forgot that I have a Stone IPA in primary. Been in there 3 weeks, threw the dry hops in tonight. Bell's Two Hearted is cold crashing and I kegged my Glacier Pale Ale last night.

We're brewing tomorrow at the shop if anyone's bored. I'll have the aforementioned pale ale on tap.

Woot, I am excited - I just ordered the rest of my kegging equipment.

What I will be doing until I get a dedicated fridge is to simply use my kegs to store the beer warm with a minimum level of carbonation (maybe even using priming sugar). I'll then dispense 2 liters at a time into CO2-purged soda bottles and use a carbonator cap to get full carbonation - these will easily fit my fridge and will make it easy to bring my beer to the shoppe, too

Paid $174 shipped for the 10-lb CO2 cylinder, dual gauge regulator, disconnects, tubing and carbonator cap.

Now, where is the cheapest place to get CO2 filled in Gainesville again?

I just got an extra 5 lb tank, plus fill at Airgas on Waldo Road. I think it was $17.50 for the fill. The other place is Alachua Fire Extinquisher on Williston road. I don't know their prices. I think chefchris said Airgas was cheaper, but don't quote me on that.

I believe Airgas is cheaper. Great group of guys that work there. A friend of mine at work smashed my regulator and they did everything they could to fix it for free. Didn't even ask them to fix it, they just started working on it.

It probably helped that Sarah took it up there and not me.

Speaking of regulators... Think they'd have a nipple for connecting two premium micromatic regs together so I can have a dual primary? It'd have to be a weird nipple, because it seems I'm going to have to use the tank screw-on to connect one to the other... Hi pressure gauge came off easily, but this damn stem for the tank connection is ridiculously tight. Measured it seems it'd have to be a 1/2" to 3/4".

Scratch that, went to Lowe's and made my own. Damn thing's not pretty, but it works. Gotta run the rest of my tubing this week.
