Well, just before I was due to head off for a business trip for 2 weeks I had a present dropped in my lap. My brother's GF's Dad was visiting and mentioned he brought his old brewing equipment for me to use. I pretty much thought he had some carboys and misc equipment, but I was luckily presented with this:




The funny thing is that that very morning I was looking at placing an order through kegconnection for kegs and supplies. Long story short, I cleaned the kegs after I got back, bought a new Salton refrigerator and have my Hefeweizen currently carbonating for our anniversary trip next week. I'm a pretty happy guy... And yes, I sent the generous man home with some of my brown ale homebrew.

damnit...that's what I need right there. All this trying to save up business is killing me! There don't seem to be any other homebrewers / ex-homebrewers in my circle of friends and family. Congrats

Thanks... I've been looking at the local ads for awhile and pricing out systems. I'm a pretty happy boy. Though now I have to go buy a bunch more corny's and fill them

Nice haul, but that kettle in the background is going to take some effort to get the mold out.
