Monday I brewed the the owner of my LHBS. While discussing brewing, beer, and technique he is showing me some of his home brew stuff collected over the last 20 years. An amazing collection of goodies. I had mentioned wanting to try pressure fermenting one day and he said he had something to help me out with that. He climbs up into the garage loft and comes back down with a 10 gallon cornie and a custom roller cart for it. I was just starting to tell him I couldn't afford anything like that when he says "you can have it, I just collect dust with it." Woot!! I cant wait to break this puppy in.

Ya, I've been studying his thread. Since I have other beer projects going right now, it will give me time to learn more before I try it.
