    Ranco, Love, or Johnson

    We use these in many different applications in the HVAC field and I can say I've never had to replace a Johnson or Honeywell. Don't see many Love or Ranco.

    Pilot gas line for Brutus with natural gas?

    It's not good practice to use copper with natural gas. Find some aluminum tubing and compression fittings. The sulfur/egg smell the gas co. puts in w/ natural gas reacts with the copper and causes corrosion and flakes getting into orifices.

    How do YOU store bottles?

    I bought a ton of bottles from a lady getting out of brewing. She had them all stored in banker's boxes. They have handles and stack well.

    Hop rhizome cloning?

    Can you make an additional rhizome from existing plant? Say dig up and cut an established rhizome in half to make more.

    Any one know why someone did this?(pics)

    I've been on search for stainless kegs to convert for my setup. A guy I work with talked to a beer truck driver and he said they had this in their shop for years. It looks like someone TIG welded a plate on it with a bunghole and wooden bung in it. The tap doesnt resemble anything I've seen...
