    Let's talk about 1 iTap to 4 kegs

    I forgot to included these two images to show how the inside works. So I just have a QD on the end of 6ft of tubing that can quickly connect to any keg. It makes it easy to clean as well as bottle. You will also see a plastic falling water jug in the keezer. I have the bottle waste going into...

    Let's talk about 1 iTap to 4 kegs

    You could send a message to Boel's support on Instagram. FWIW, here is how I resolve the removals process for cleaning.

    Do I understand this bulk grain thing correctly?

    Hi, Okay, so I'm seriously considering investing in bulk grain, but I want to make sure I understand the logistics as well as "what i will still need". Backstory: I was working downstairs in my (bare-bones) "tap room" and left the storage cabinet door open and a couple mice got in there and...

    What is this in my new kettle?

    Old thread I realize, but just a follow up with an additional question. So, bought the aforementioned citric acid and passivated my kettle. Thanks for the input. Since then, according to their, I read that BKF also works as a passivating agent. Have you heard this and more specifically, have you...

    Cleaning & sanitizing a pump

    Hi, I have a couple of these pumps that I once used to circulate commercial truck anti-freeze in what was my attempt to build a DIY glycol chiller (didn't work) for my fermentation chamber. If I used a BLC (Craft Meister's to be exact) to clean it and then santize it, would I be able to use the...

    How do I polish a used keg?

    Thanks for that detailed info! I've thought about that mirror finish and I'm impressed by it, but since these dispensing kegs are never really seen, I decided to go with Bar Keeper's Friend, a scotch bright pad and 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper. I may have been able to skip the sandpaper step...

    How do I polish a used keg?

    Hi, (Moderator, please move this thread to correct forum if I've posted in the wrong place.) Does anyone know how to clean/polish/buff a keg to make the stamped info more legible? Is it even possible? Thanks, Belgian Samurai

    What do you do with the spent grain (from your mash)??

    Interesting timing of your question! I freeze mine for baking. I just posted my recipe for the best chocolate chip espresso cookies ever in the "Cooking & Pairing" forum. The freezer gives you about 6 months to decide what to do with them. I've also made banana nut bread with them, which...

    What does head type tell me about my beer?

    Hi, So, as the title asks, how do I decifer the type of foam head on a beer? Rocky, creamy, etc. Here are 4 progress pictures of this very hoppy beer I just tapped. I am having issues with pouring a glass of foam and waiting for it to dissipate to be able to drink it. My keezer runs between...

    The BEST choco-chip espresso cookies ever! (Spent grains)

    Hi, I recently baked some spectacular spent grain cookies. I still have 3 gallon bags worth of grain in the freezer from that brew day and I've made about 100 large cookies. This grain goes a long ways! If you're interested in a phenomenal cookie (that is also fibrous, so don't eat too many at...

    Cream ale hops medley

    I'm back to report the results. Where do I begin? The beer is good. Drinkable. Hoppy! GRAPEFRUIT! Dry finish (as in a "dry" cabernet). Grapefruit on the back end for a lasting finish. I am probably going to make an avocado salsa to pair with it to compliment the intense tart citrus flavors. I'll...
