I forgot to answer your second question. I am in the Army. I was active duty for 11 years, and now I am in the FL National Guard on full time Active Guard Reserve (AGR).
I am a C-23 Flight Engineer. so I pretty much just shuttle people around.
Spring Hill is just North of Tampa.
Thanks for the info, sounds like a good deal on those coolers, I will be on the lookout when I get back. If I dont make my own, then I will just get the set from somewhere. The main thing that I am interested in is the keggle.
Wether or not it is woth it to get one with the spigot, the thermometer, and a false bottom.
Maybe a list of what I had in mind would be better for people to sharp shoot and help me out with.
15 gallon brew keggle W/therm/spigot/ and false bottom
mash vessels 10 Ga rubbermaid, with sparge arm, spigots, tubing, and false bottom (the rubbermaid Kit)
2 6.5 gallon glass carboys
2 5.0 gallon glass carboys
4 double bubble air locks ( is there a difference between the two?)
2 carboy haulers
4 carboy plugs / bungs/ corks which work best here, I have been reading that most like the caps, but do they seal good enough. What are the advantages / disadvantages.
of course the misc clear tubing, sipons, bottle fillers, ets.
I already have a lot of flip top bottles that I had saved from Germany.
Things that I would like to do before I brew, watch someone brew an all grain, get some more info on AG brewing, and make sure that I have it in my head, a pretty good idea of what to do, that way I will limit my mistakes.
Thanks for the kind words, the ARMY has been real good to me and the my family, so I have no complaints. Besides, I was too dumb to do anything else.
